So, why was Todd sent packing to the minor leagues? What did he do that was so egregious? Todd’s problem was his ratings. CNN and MSNBC are committed to leftist programming to a level that borders on religiousness, and Chuck Todd is one of their top preachers. But ultimately, networks need to make money, and when no one is watching your programs, change is inevitable.
According to a White House statement released this morning, Assistant Press Secretary Dick Dipshchitz stated, “President Biden recognizes the need for change at the top of the CDC. They’ve lost almost all their credibility and they only have a 4% approval rating according to recent polls, with a 3% margin of error. The president believes Chris Wallace is the one who can right the ship.”

Wallace’s choice of CNN was truly puzzling from the get-go, but when the news broke that he was going to be heading up the on-air talent for the soon-to-be-launched premium streaming service known as CNN+, we really began to wonder what the heck he was thinking. Jumping to CNN, and then agreeing to be the face of CNN+, was akin to taking a new job at Chernobyl as the existing employees were walking out the door with a glow.
A buzz throughout the industry began to circulate last month that things had become so bad, with subscriptions to the premium service coming in far below their overly optimistic expectations, that extensive layoffs at CNN+ were imminent. And there’s no doubt that these failures are the driving force behind the apparent seller’s regret that Wallace himself is now experiencing.
Both have had issues with their trustworthiness over the years. Wallace’s infamous performance during the 2020 Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump showed his true left-leanings, as he repeatedly interrupted Trump while allowing Biden to babble endlessly. And though there are other examples of Wallace’s reliability concerns, Brian Williams’ believability is utterly non-existent.
