Chuck Todd ‘Proud’ of How NBC Handled Brian Williams Scandal

‘They treated it like a campaign, we treated it like a news organization’

Chuck Todd 'Proud' of How NBC Handled Brian Williams Scandal (NewsBusters)

Talking to former CBS political analyst Jeff Green at an event for 92Y in New York, NBC's Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd praised his network's handling of the Brian Williams scandal: "Look, I am proud of my news organization, that it proved that nobody's bigger, nobody is above integrity and credibility. Period."

That declaration was prompted by Greenfield taking a shot at how Fox News handled similar allegations against host Bill O'Reilly: "You know, it's clear to me that when the Bill O'Reilly thing popped, Fox did run a political campaign. All they said is 'We're being attacked by far-left smear artists.'" Todd sniffed: "They treated it like a campaign, we treated it like a news organization."
