  • Maddow madness: MSNBC host blames Trump for Venezuela crisis

    According to many Democrats, President Donald Trump is at fault for the problems concerning the Middle East, North Korea, China, Russia, the economy, illegal immigration, the tax code, Obamacare and more. Now, he’s being blamed even for the rioting enveloping Venezuela in response to the economic devastation brought by its socialist regime. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who famously melted down over Trump’s election victory last November, was reporting this week about a donation from Venezuela’s state-run oil company to the Trump inauguration.
  • MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Sees a “Russia Connection” Lurking Around Every Corner

    One day after her network joined the rest of corporate media in cheering for President Trump’s missile attack on Syria, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back to regular business: seeing Russian collaboration with Trump at work. It’s “impossible,” fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell told Maddow on April 7, to rule out that “Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week – so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all of the praise he’s picked up over the past 24 hours.” Maddow concurred, suggesting that only the FBI’s ongoing probe into Trump’s alleged...
  • MSNBC host’s conspiracy theory: What if Putin planned the Syrian chemical attack to help Trump?

    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis. A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking...
  • Breaking News! Maddow Reveals That Trump's EPA Disrespects Sanctity of Government Regulations(video)

    MRC NewsBuster.org ^ | 4/05/17 | Jack Coleman |
    As I'm sure you recall, Maddow last month wildly overhyped her "exclusive" report -- actually obtained by another journalist -- about Trump's "tax returns," when all she had was Trump's 2005 1040 federal tax return that revealed he paid $38 million in federal taxes that year for $150 million in income. The pushback against Maddow, even on the left, was swift and brutal. Unchastened by this, Maddow last night breathlessly touted yet another "exclusive," this time concerning documents leaked to her by some like-minded left winger deep within the cubicles of the Environmental Protection Agency. The documents released to Maddow,...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” host Rachel Maddow said there was still a “possibility” President Donald Trump and his campaign were innocent of accusations of being in cahoots with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign and that this may not take down the Trump presidency. If that is indeed the case, Maddow urged her viewers not to let their guards down against public corruption, especially as there are any other numbers of storylines to pursue while the Trump-Russia saga dominates the news coverage.

    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.

    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...

    She can’t be serious! 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...

    Yes, you read that headline correctly. 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...
