Francis Charles Todd aka Chuck Todd is a partisan Democratic party operative, the Political Director for NBC News, and moderator of NBC's Meet the Press. Todd has been named the 4th most Left-biased American journalist. He is hostile toward conservative Christians.
"Todd says the credit for this near-universal dislike and mistrust of “mainstream” media figures lies more with the late Roger Ailes, who got his start as one of President Richard Nixon’s “angry” foot soldiers. Todd calls Ailes the “godfather of the Trump presidency.”
Todd apparently thinks support for any Republican presidential candidate — not just Trump — is some sort of moral failure, as he decries Ailes’ work for then-Vice President George H.W. Bush in 1988. Todd writes that Ailes saved Bush from defeat in the campaign against Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis by “exploiting a series of superficial issues.”
Todd's wife, Kristian, is the co-founder of Maverick Strategies, which handles direct mail and other consulting services for Democratic candidates and progressive causes. Kristian hosted a dinner party in 2015 for Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
