Meet the Press Chuck Todd and the Boeing Blackout

Meet the Press Chuck Todd and the Boeing Blackout

Russell Mokhiber

On October 29, 2018, Lion Air’s Flight 610, a Boeing 737 MAX 8, crashed into the Java Sea after taking off from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing all 189 passengers and crew on board.

That crash has not been mentioned once on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd in the twenty episodes since.

On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737 MAX 8, crashed after taking off from Addis Ababa killing all 157 passengers and crew on board.

Lots of articles on CD these days about holding corporations accountable.

Not enough about storming the gates with torches and pitchforks.

Boeing will settle this matter for relative peanuts, take it to the bank.

There has also been a near-total blackout in corporate media that Ralph Nader’s grandniece was a passenger fatality on the Ethiopian jet. Maybe because Nader almost immediately called for grounding all Max 8 and 9 jets? Maybe they are afraid of whatever consumer clout Ralph still has?

Step up to the plate Chuck. Boeing will not be able to save your rep on this catastrophe. If you dont cover it, you should be fired.

This is the end result of corruption - disaster and death. Oh, but the repubtards want to gut the integrity of are regulatory system and are supported by the right wing christians who don’t want any truth in the U.S. government. We are in deep, deep trouble.

They are afraid of anyone who tells the truth and isn’t in denial over this government and a business community out of control.

As for banks, why not Wells Fargo? They love a big scandal that they can get in the middle of and rub their greasy palms around.

Chuck is in the ranks of the most annoying corporate servicing pricks in MSM, including of course Public Broadcasting.

Among such corporate servicing schmucks are Thomas Friedman, George Stephanopoulos, Steve Inskeep, Ari Shapiro (the NPR list is seemingly endless…e.g., Melissa Block, Robert Siegel, Mara Liasson, Kelly McKevers, et al).
