Chuck Todd rightfully gets a lot of criticism, but in this case he did exactly what he was supposed to do.
Mace (R-SC) lied. She was pushing her false information, but Chuck Todd stopped her, corrected her, and forced her to change her story.
Media that sticks to facts is how people perceive The difference between Biden and Trump when it comes to handling classified information.
Biden complied with the law when the documents were discovered, but Trump did not, so the distinction between the two men is essential.
At a time when America is fighting to maintain law, order and democracy, it is important to obey the law.
Chuck Todd deserves credit for not allowing Republican congressmen to lie and cover up their differences.
