Debbie Wasserman-Schultz stepped down from her role at the DNC Convention, but even so the questions loom about how much influence the Democrats have over the mainstream media. In one of the leaked emails, Wasserman-Schultz sends NBC’s leading anchor, Chuck Todd, an email entitled, “This must stop” and asks for a meeting to discuss negative press directed towards her and the DNC.
Chuck, see below. I would like to discuss this with you today. Can you reach out to Luis to schedule a call? Thanks. DWS >
MSNBC’s Brzezinski: Wasserman Schultz ‘Should Step Down,’ Dem Primary ‘Has Been Unfair’ To Sanders by IAN HANCHETT
18 May 20160 >
On Wednesday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski called for DNC Chair Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) to “step down” over her handling of this year’s Democratic presidential primary. After playing a clip of Wasserman Schultz, Brzezinski said, “This has been very poorly handled from the start. Ot has been unfair, and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts, quite frankly, with the person that we just heard speaking. It just does.” Brzezinski added of Wasserman Schultz, “She should step down.” Brzezinski’s co-host, former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough wondered why Sanders would “get in line” for the Democratic Party, given that they “rigged the entire thing,” and that if he was in Sanders’ position, “I’d say, ‘Go straight to hell, I’m running as an independent.’”
