    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow's ratings have plummeted since her special episode Tuesday night when she said she was going to release President Donald Trump's tax returns. [Snip] It appears those feelings translated into depressed viewership numbers. The following night, Wednesday, Maddow's ratings were down 36 percent overall from Tuesday, and in the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic, her ratings were down 54 percent, Fox News reports.
  • The Media’s Maddow Disease Its loss of perspective grows under hatred of Trump.

    Its loss of perspective grows under hatred of Trump. For decades the media carefully cultivated an aura of “objectivity” in order to preserve its propagandistic authority. It was always a sham, but it worked as long as Republican presidents paid homage to it. Trump hasn’t, and the media hates him for it, even as its unhinged behavior confirms the truth of his stance. How dare you treat us as liberal partisans, they pout, before trotting off to the latest anti-Trump gala. Guess who is one of this year’s winners of the “Walter Cronkite Award”? Jorge Ramos, the open-borders activist who...

    Rachel Maddow’s scoop on Trump’s tax returns sparked a media frenzy and left many disappointed over the hype after her report aired on MSNBC Tuesday night. On Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher said it all amounted to “a Help Trump Burger.” “Liberals have to be so careful these days. I’m a big fan of Rachel Maddow, I want her on the air, but you can be a fan of somebody and not like everything they do,” he told guest panelists Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, and author Andrew Sullivan. “And this week she hypes — which is okay —...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 19 Mar 2017 | John Semmens
    This week, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow used an illegally obtained copy of Donald Trump’s 2005 federal tax forms to assail the President as “not as smart as he wants everyone to believe he is.” The evidence cited by Maddow was that the tax forms showed Trump paid 25% of his income for 2005 to the federal government. “Here’s this so-called business genius coughing up a quarter of his earnings to the feds,” she mocked. “This compared unfavorably to presumed financial naifs Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt), who paid 18.7% and 13.5%, respectively. It looks like the guys...

    It wouldn’t be fair to call her Tuesday night show the TV flop seen ’round the world. It was worse than that. Much worse. It was a gut-punch embarrassment to Maddow, to MSNBC, to NBC and to all the lefties who bought her afternoon tweet that “We’ve got Trump tax returns.” Were she selling stocks, she’d be busted for running a pump-and-dump scam. Her scoop, courtesy of journalist David Cay Johnston, was two pages from Trump’s 2005 federal return. It showed income of $153 million, and a tax payment of $38 million. Imagine what was going on with Maddow’s producers...

    MSNBC’s big “Trump tax return” scoop has caused friction between the cable news network and parent NBC, according to insiders. “[MSNBC] announced it on Twitter, and [NBC] found out when [the general public] did,” said a source. “[MSNBC president] Phil Griffin was trying to undermine [NBC News president] Noah Oppenheim. There was never a conversation. They overplayed their hand in a huge way.” Host Rachel Maddow teased the story on Twitter, then withheld the story till later in her program, revealing in a big ­anticlimax that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005. “It’s their cable network, but it’s...

Maddow’s scapegoat for Trump tax disaster is one for the ‘fake news’ record books Maddow began a nearly two-hour promotion of her “breaking” news with an announcement on social media that “We’ve got Trump tax returns,” her tweet said. “(Seriously.)” Network colleague Lawrence O’Donnell added that Maddow would be joining him on his own show immediately following hers to discuss “the night we’ve all been waiting for.” When her show aired, she spent the first 20 minutes hyping it up, telling her viewers what Trump’s tax returns could prove, prompting occasional filmmaker Michael Moore to...

    Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell (N.J.) called MSNBC host Rachel Maddow "sir" on Wednesday night, and she seemed fine with it. The two were discussing Pascrell's push for President Trump to release his tax returns when Maddow ended the interview on her show. "Congressman Bill Pascrell is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee who's pushing as hard as anybody on this issue," Maddow said. "Thanks for being with us and keep us apprised, sir." "Thank you, sir," Pascrell said. He quickly corrected himself and said "ma'am." "It's OK, I answer to both," Maddow responded while laughing. She added...

    The MSNBC host's "breaking story" releasing Trump's tax return on air breaks apart MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow went on Twitter Tuesday (March 14th) to hype her “breaking story”: “We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).” This no doubt sent the Left into a state of delirium. Then, Maddow followed up with another tweet, lowering expectations slightly: “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.” That was not quite accurate either. What Maddow finally revealed on her show, after all of her self-promotion, were only two leaked pages from President...

Leading off his eponymous talk radio show on Wednesday, conservative stalwart Rush Limbaugh lambasted MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and “lunatic” far-left journalist David Cay Johnston over the pathetic release of President Trump’s 2005 tax returns, declaring “they got schlonged” and blinded by their hatred for Trump. Limbaugh emphasized at the onset that not only was Maddow not smart enough to diagnose what Johnston had, but that her “intelligence is vastly overrated and I think way too invested in by people on the left, but people on the left in general, folks, are teetering on...

    SNBC host Rachel Maddow was widely mocked on social media Tuesday night after drawing out the revelations in what she announced was an “exclusive story” regarding Donald Trump’s tax returns. Instead of getting right to her big scoop about a 2005 Trump tax return she obtained, Maddow opened her show with a rambling 20-minute rant outlining her often tangential theories regarding Trump’s connections to Russia. Maddow did not unveil the relevant tax documents until 23 minutes into the show, revealing that Donald Trump had made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes...

    Wait. Look at that closer. What does it say on the second page there? “Client copy”? Yes. Client copy. So. Either Donald Trump leaked this himself, or someone with a “client copy” did. Given that there appears to be nothing embarrassing about the return whatsoever, and the world is laughing at Maddow, my money’s on Trump being the leaker. It’s probably the most favorable return for his narrative in existence. So: he leaks it, hoping this will end the controversy for good — and change the subject from all this CBO/TrumpCare talk.

The 1995 tax records, never before disclosed, reveal the extraordinary tax benefits that Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, derived from the financial wreckage he left behind in the early 1990s through mismanagement of three Atlantic City casinos, his ill-fated foray into the airline business and his ill-timed purchase of the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan....

    Media: The mainstream press turned on Rachel Maddow after her disastrous attempt to drum up ratings by hyping a humdrum Donald Trump tax return. Why are they upset? She just did what they've been doing since Trump got elected. After teasing a "huge scoop" on Twitter — that she had Trump's tax returns — Maddow got scooped by the White House, which announced a half-hour before her show started that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005, which was all Maddow had. That's a huge amount of taxes by any standard, and represented 24% of Trump's income that year....

The MSNBC host found herself in the odd position Wednesday of defending herself from criticism following one of the biggest-ever scoops for her show. Maddow's show revealed, through reporter David Cay Johnston, two pages of tax return information that showed Trump earned $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year. Trump has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns....

    “Nothingburger” was one of a number of terms used to describe MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s report on Donald Trump‘s 2005 tax return on Tuesday night. In a segment she hyped up on Twitter, Maddow revealed the contents of two pages from Trump’s tax return for that year. The return showed that Trump paid 24 per cent in tax on income of $150 million for the 2005 tax year. That’s about the same amount that a married couple with two incomes totalling around $400,000 might have paid, said David Cay Johnston, the investigative journalist who obtained the return to start with....

Anyway, when she finally revealed what was in the taxes, it was not a huge deal. Trump earned about $150 million in income in 2005, and paid $38 million in taxes, thanks to the alternative minimum tax, which he wants to kill. This gives Trump an effective tax rate of...

    Rachel Maddow can trace the mood of her audience by looking at the ratings. Her MSNBC show’s viewership sank like a stone in the weeks following Donald Trump’s election, as depressed liberals avoided politics, and bottomed out over the holidays. Slowly, they re-emerged, becoming active and interested again. Maddow’s audience has grown to the point where February was her show’s most-watched month since its 2008 launch. Maddow has emerged as the favorite cable news host for presidential resistors in the opening days of the Trump administration, just as Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity is one for supporters or Keith Olbermann...

    According to Adweek’s Scoreboard, The Kelly File, hosted by Fox News personality Megyn Kelly, has been in a tight competition for ratings with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. Among the 25-54 age demographic, The Rachel Maddow Show nearly tied Kelly in total viewership Wednesday, with 400,000 viewers to Kelly’s 401,000. This is third time in the month of August where Maddow has either tied or surpassed Kelly among the 25-54 age bracket. The Fox News Channel show still overtook Maddow in overall viewers with 500,000, but according to Breitbart, the 25-54 demographic is particularly important because of its high value to advertisers....

    Uh-oh: looks like I’ve had something of a mind-meld with Rachel Maddow . . . During Bill Clinton’s DNC speech tonight, I tweeted “the spectacle of Bill Clinton telling the romantic story of how he met, wooed and married Hillary is deeply creepy.” When the speech ended, Rachel Maddow, on MSNBC, called the top of the speech “shocking and weird,” describing the beginning of the speech as “controversial.” Maddow was miffed that Clinton spoke of “a girl,” “the girl” and built “her whole political story for the whole first half of the speech around her marriage to him.” View the...

    Warning, sensitive MSNBC viewers may want to look away. That’s essentially what Rachel Maddow told liberal watchers on Wednesday night before showing a picture of anti-Hillary Clinton buttons at the Republican convention. Considering the hateful rhetoric that’s come out of MSNBC for years, perhaps that viewer warning should have appeared in the past. The buttons included ones that read “Hillary for prison” and “Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016.” Maddow informed viewers, “You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being...
  • Megyn Kelly Defends Maddow: ‘What’s the Harm’ in Her Moderating a Debate?

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow co-moderated last night’s Democratic debate, and while she did receive praise for asking tough, substantive questions, she did receive criticism because of the very fact that she was an outspoken liberal commentator moderating a presidential debate. Oh, and also the fact that she hugged both candidates. On Fox News tonight, Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz had their doubts about Maddow’s claim she would do the same for Republicans, with Kurtz insisting “she should not have been on that stage.” Kelly, however, pointed out that the RNC has pushed for conservative commentators to co-moderate their debates (i.e....

    A super PAC supporting Auditor Adam Edelen’s re-election bid has released a Web ad using audio of an MSNBC segment lauding the incumbent Democrat’s speech at Fancy Farm this year. The two-minute video, titled “Big, Important Things,” features MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, on her Aug. 21 program, calling Edelen “the best southern Democratic politician I have seen speak at an event like this (Fancy Farm) since (former Texas Gov.) Ann Richards, since Bill Clinton in his prime.” The ad also includes portions of Edelen’s speech and footage of him at Fancy Farm events. Kentuckians for Honesty in Government released the video...

    Rachel Maddow sat down with Seth Meyers last night and couldn’t stop laughing at how amazing Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign has been, not for the country as a whole but for her specifically. She said his campaign has been a “gift from God” and explained to an amazed Meyers how Trump is not just crushing his opponents in the polls, but doing so by a mile and keeping serious candidates out of the race. Meyers found the bright side: no one will be able to take him down with comments he made on a hot mic or something because the...
  • Maddow Blasts Law Requiring Aurora Shooting Victim's Parents To Pay Gun Manufacturers

    ~snip~ Maddow opened her show with heart-rending footage of the Aurora trial. She highlighted the testimony of Brenton Lowak, whose friend Jessica Ghawi -- a 24-year-old aspiring sports reporter -- died in the shooting. ~snip~ The parents unsuccessfully sued the retailers who made the firearm that killed their daughter. Colorado state law requires that plaintiffs who sue the manufacturers of gun products pay the companies' legal fees if they lose. “That’s not a typo,” Maddow said, adding, “The mother and father of the victim who died in the Aurora mass shooting have just been ordered to pay a quarter-million dollars...
