Skip to comments.Rachel Maddow's credibility and ratings at a low ebb following Mueller findings, critics say

MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" has been hit with a serious one-two punch.
One day after finishing May with its worst ratings since Donald Trump took office, the lefty pundit's eponymous program faced a Vanity Fair bombshell report that the New York Times didnt want its reporters appearing on Maddow's show, not because her ratings were down, but because she was too far left, even for them.
The New York Times had reportedly blocked its reporters from appearing on Maddow because the program is too partisan, with one insider from the Grey Lady's newsroom agreeing, telling Fox News it rubs off on any journalist who is too closely aligned to the far left.
I do think Maddow, and others on MSNBC, have very strong opinions that affect their ability to tell stories in an accurate way sometimes, the source said. You dont get tainted just by appearing [on the show], but its better to err on the side of trying to maintain objectivity and caution.
The insider said colleagues at the paper are divided as to whether or not appearing on Maddows show would actually damage their reputations. Many of the Times top reporters are aware and rightly sensitive about the papers reputation of leaning left, the source said, and appearing on Maddow makes it hard to convince people otherwise.
A handful of journalists work for the both the Times and MSNBC, including Peter Baker, Nick Confessore and Jeremy Peters. All three of those reporters declined to comment when individually asked about Maddow. The Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment, either.

See what becoming a commie does to ya, look at pics of Rachel Maddow while in college, look at her now..that is what liberalism does to a person
The feel-good story of the day.
What’s that old saying about how if you lay down with dogs you end up with fleas?
So can anyone really be surprised, if anyone makes assumptions about reporters who go on MSNBC????
Well aside from being a babbling moron and a compulsive liar, there is literally no reason not to watch him.
It’s too bad she went TDS and all the other BS along with her new shtick
She was interesting before Trump and entertaining
Thanks jazusamo. Her credibility has nowhere to go but up. If MSNBC were a news organization, Madcow would have nowhere to go but OUT.

She never had any. There must be another reason for her decline. Maybe her viewers are simply too depressed to watch her now that the bombshells all turned out to be duds? If impeachment gets going, they will return.
I don’t care if she’s Left or right, her problem is that she is a corrupt liar.
I think the whole thing is a tax write off like the newspapers.
She has been clinically depressed since she was a teenager and now her followers are headed in the same direction. The people who bailed may be the lucky ones.
I agree, she says whatever she wants everyone else to believe.
Not to worry. She can go back to fly fishing.
She’s got the biggest cable news ratings outside Fox.
