Poor Chuck Todd didn’t anticipate the blow-back from this stupid comment

NBC’s Chuck Todd thinks  politicians complaining about reporters are like sports teams complaining about referees: They only do it when they’re losing.

It turns out, he ought to know.

The “Meet The Press” moderator and NBC political director said on Twitter Wednesday that “In sports and politics, when athletes/candidates are complaining about the refs, it usually means they are losing. And it is NEVER becoming.”

Of course, in sports, it’s against the rules for the referees to be rooting for one team to win and trying to skew the game in that direction.

And there were plenty of Twitter users to remind Todd that that’s just what the media do in American politics every day.

There were also a good number in the Twitterverse happy to remind Todd of times when he himself complained about sports referees.
