Chuck Todd: Hillary Miniseries "A Total Nightmare" For NBC News


On Morning Joe this morning, Chuck Todd addressed accusations of a conflict of interest between NBC Entertainment and NBC News (where he is Political Director) over NBC Entertainment's proposed miniseries on Hillary Clinton.

CHUCK TODD: This is why this miniseries is a total nightmare for NBC News. Because we know there's this giant firewall, we know we have nothing to do with it, we know that we’d love probably to be as critical, or whatever it is going to be, if it comes out. But there’s nothing we can do about it. And we’re going to only own the negatives. Whether it’s negative because it’s the Clinton people are upset that it’s too tough on them, or negative because the Republicans think it’s this glorification of her -- no matter what, only we are going to own it, because people are going to see the peacock and they see NBC and see NBC News and think: ‘Well, they can’t be that separate.'
