Chuck Todd Cracks Maddow Up with a Swipe at CNN: ‘If They Choose to Get Slower News…’

During his report from Terry McAuliffe HQ in Virginia, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd took a not-so-subtle, indirect swipe at CNN, much to the amusement of Rachel Maddow. Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Maddow broke the news that McAuliffe won on the air and asked Todd if the people in the room are listening. Todd said, “They’re watching another channel, and I’ll just leave it at that, Rachel.”

Maddow burst out laughing, and said, “Serves ’em right, then.” Todd continued to poke and prod at their cable news rival.

“If they choose to get slower news, what are we supposed to do? I think word will trickle in that maybe they ought to change the channel if they want to know who won the Virginia governor’s race.”

Does Obamacare allow universal access to icepacks for a burn that bad?
