In a radio interview on Wednesday, Steve Bannon claimed Chuck Todd said the Roy Moore story “felt completely orchestrated.”

Our ruling

Bannon said Chuck Todd said the Roy Moore story “felt completely orchestrated.”

But the Meet the Press clip Bannon cited showed Todd was talking about the Republican response to the Washington Post report on sexual assault allegations against Moore, not the report itself. Todd never questioned the report’s validity.

We rate this statement False.
