State-run media falls for another joke.
“This is why this miniseries is a total nightmare for NBC News,” Todd said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We know there’s this giant firewall. We know that we have nothing to do with it. We know that we’d love probably to be as critical or whatever it is going to be, if it comes out.”
Todd added, though, that regardless of whether the Clintons or Republicans are upset with the portrayal, NBC News will pay the price.
“No matter what, only we are going to own it, because people are going to see the peacock, and they see NBC, and they see NBC News, and they think, ‘Well, they can’t be that separate,’ ” Todd said.
Well, also, the Today Show has all but abandoned real news in favor of entertainment and pushing NBC entertainment shows. So, that firewall has some holes.
Todd has a movie suggestion that the state-owned suits at NBC entertainment will never consider.
To any entertainment folks looking for a compelling political mini-series: try John Edwards

You know who else would make a fun NBC feature? Bob Filner, Eliot Spitzer and Carlos Danger. Three pervy stooges.
Even Hollywood hypocrite Maaatt Daaaaamon would make for a more interesting feature than Hillary Clinton.
