Todd Confronted on ‘Real Time’

todd_real_time_8-24.jpgOn the most recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” NBC’s Chuck Todd joined Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Jay Leno on the panel for the week’s discussion. Journalist Jeremy Scahill also appeared to discuss Blackwater and ended up singling out Todd, accusing: “Chuck, you called it political cat-nip to talk about the CIA and Cheney’s role in this, because it distracts from the important issues. This is a central issue and you called it cable cat-nip.”

In an email to Salon.com’s Glenn Greenwald, Scahill said the following of his appearance on the show and his on-air disagreement with Todd:

Right as we walked off stage, he said to me “that was a cheap shot.” I said “what are you talking about?” and he said “you know it.” I then said that I monitor msm coverage very closely and asked him what was not true that I said on the show. He then replied: “that’s not the point. You sullied my reputation on TV.”
