In an outrageous affirmation of “he said, she said” journalism, NBC News’s chief White House correspondent and MSNBC host Chuck Todd said that it’s not the media’s job to report the facts or debunk right-wing spin about Obamacare.

Sign the petition to tell Chuck Todd: Journalists are not stenographers. The news media should report the facts.

On “Morning Joe," Todd made the following remark about Americans’ perceptions about Obamacare:

"But more importantly, [Americans would repeat] stuff that Republicans have successfully messaged against [Obamacare.] They don't repeat the other stuff because they haven't even heard the Democratic message. What I always love is people say, 'Well, it's you folks' fault in the media.' No, it's the President of the United States' fault for not selling it."

Chuck Todd seems to think that “reporting the news” is nothing more than “Democrat said X, Republican said Y.”

The news media is supposed to separate truth from spin and report the facts to the American people.

Tell Chuck Todd: It is your job to report the facts, not “he said, she said” lies and spin.
