Over the last 48 hours, one of the biggest political stories involved former breitbart News editor milo yiannopoulos and his resignation from the publication following the release of an interview where he appeared to endorse pedophilia. In response, a well-respected news host has decided to offer his view.

Todd on Milo

Milo Yiannopoulos has become one of the most well-known social media voices on the political right. An unapologetic supporter of Donald Trump, the British journalist is known as a provocateur who routinely travels to college campuses where he frequently battles liberals groups and ideology, like Black Lives Matter and feminism.

After his speech at UC Berkeley was cancelled earlier this month due to protests turning into riots, Yiannopoulos found himself as a headline guest on "Real Time with Bill Maher." While his career seemed to be looking up, the aforementioned video resurfaced, and Milo went on to lose his $250,000 book deal, his speaking slot at CPAC, and his job as Breitbart. In response, host of "Meet the Press" Chuck Todd chimed in, as reported on February 21.

During Tuesday's edition of "MTP Daily" on MSNBC, Chuck Todd ripped into Milo Yiannopoulos, and did so without even mentioning his name.

"I'm telling you right now, I'm not naming names," Todd said. "You wanna troll for attention, pull a few muscles trying to become click bait, and make yourself an alt-right hero, then knock yourself out," he continued, before asking, "can we all just stop paying attention to this?"

"When you are saying things just to get a book deal, and gee, sorry that book deal just went South, then it's our job to just stop listening," Chuck Todd added.

"Free speech does not mean giving someone a free platform to spread hate or nonsense," Todd continued, before concluded, "even it if does mean more clicks."

Moving forward

After his resignation from Breitbart, Milo Yiannopoulos held a press conference in New York City. While speaking to the press, Yiannopoulos announced that he was in talks with a new book publisher, and is planning to create his own media outlet.
