  • In Trump era, Rachel Maddow starts beating Fox News

    Fox News normally ranks #1 among cable news channels. But lately MSNBC's Rachel Maddow has been challenging Fox at 9 p.m., the centerpiece of the prime time schedule. "The Rachel Maddow Show" surpassed "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in March among 25- to 54-year-old viewers, the demographic that determines advertising rates. Maddow was on track to win again in April. But on Monday night the cable news ratings race changed dramatically. Carlson moved from 9 p.m. to 8, replacing Bill O'Reilly, and Fox's 5 p.m. talk show "The Five" moved to 9. Maddow may or may not benefit from the change. Regardless,...
  • MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Sees a 'Russia connection' lurking around every corner

    04/14/2017 7:28:59 AM PDT · by deplorableindc · 22 replies
    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...
  • NBC Accused Of Being 'Sexist' After Replacing Rachel Maddow With Brian Williams - Syria News

    Rachel Maddow's fans are not happy. People took Twitter to express their outrage at "sexist" NBC after the MSNBC anchor, host of "The Rachel Maddow Show," was replaced by Brian Williams during breaking news coverage of the U.S. missile attack on Thursday night. Williams, the breaking news anchor for the network, took over during Maddow's 9 p.m. slot when news broke that the U.S. military fired more than 50 missiles at Syrian base in response to what it believes was a chemical weapons attack that killed more than 100 people. Numerous people bashed the news network for its decision, with...

    Trump Conservative ^ | 03/15/2017 | Rufus Shinra
    After nearly two years since the announcement of his intent to run for office, President Donald Trump is still being viciously pursued by the mainstream media, who are convinced there is some "silver bullet" out there that will destroy his movement and bring their shattered world back to their version of normalcy. However, one by one, every conspiracy theory that they have convinced themselves in true about Trump has blown up in the media's faces. The Russian hackers, Vladimir Putin connections and now the Trump tax returns have all proven to be at most ineffective for the anti-Trump media forces....
  • ‘They Got Schlonged!’ Limbaugh Goes to Town Mocking ‘Overrated’ Maddow, ‘Lunatic’ Johnston

    03/15/2017 5:18:53 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | March 15, 2017 | Curtis Houk
    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...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 03/15/2017 | John Merline
    When MSNBC's Rachel Maddow started promoting her big scoop about President Trump's tax returns, she made it seem like it would be the shocker story of the year. Trump resolutely refused to release his tax returns during the campaign, a break from tradition for presidential candidates. So many in the media were anxiously awaiting what they expected were embarrassing revelations. Turns out that in 2005 — the only return Maddow got her hands on — Trump paid a huge amount of taxes: $38 million to be exact. Based on his income for the year, that worked out to a tax...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ,” Fox News Correspondent Geraldo Rivera stated that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow “now has the mantle of the Al Capone vault.” Rivera, who hosted the hyped 1986 live TV special “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults,” which ended with the opening of a vault owned by gangster Al Capone that was completely empty except for some debris, said, “I tell you what I did find was ratings. And I think Rachel Maddow also will discover the ratings inside the empty vault. But I think that, because she made fun of me,...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/15/2017 | Staff
    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....

    Oh how jubilant the DUmmies were last night when Rachel Maddow tweeted that she had a copy of Donald Trump's income tax returns. Finally, FINALLY they had the documentation that would quickly lead to the impeachment of President Trump. Or so they thought. After a few minutes of being glued to her 9 PM EDT show on MSNBC, horrible reality suddenly set in. Not only would Trump NOT be impeached but Maddow revealed that Trump paid a respectable $38 million in federal taxes on an income of $150 million. Sudden but absolutely HILARIOUS deflation occurred starting just several minutes...

Wretched Rachel set her sights on bringing the Donald down through the release of his tax returns. Instead, she ended up sinking her own leaky boat.

    President Trump may have pulled the most epic political trolling since, well since the last time he did something like this to a political opponent. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was set to release a big scoop about Trump’s taxes Tuesday, when the White House went and released them right before her show began. Here was the announcement of the scoop that set the political world aflutter from Rachel Maddow’s Twitter account: (TWEET-AT-LINK) She later added the clarification explaining what she had in her possession, writing, “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET,...

    While Rachel Maddow drones on with the coherence of Janet Yellen, losing thousands of viewers by the minute, the MSNBC anchor was promptly scooped not only by the White House which revealed her "secret" one hour in advance, but also by the Daily Beast which reported that its contributor David Cay Johnston had obtained the first two pages of TrumpÂ’s 2005 federal income tax return, allegedly receiving them in the mail, and posted his "analysts" on his website, According to the documents, Trump and his wife Melania paid $38 million in total income tax, consisting of $5.3 million...

    Looks like Rachel Maddow’s feminist solidarity doesn’t extend to Melania Trump . . . Appearing on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, did Maddow express outrage over a newspaper report on the possibility that Melania Trump had in the past worked as an “escort?” Not at all. To the contrary, Maddow described Melania’s lawsuit against the newspaper involved as part of an “attack” and “assault” on the media. Maddow fretted that the media lacked the resources to “fight back.” Maddow never identified the newspaper in question. In fact, far from lacking resources to “fight back,” the Daily Mail announced in...

    Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference. Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    Larry O’Connor’s suggestion was so brilliant that . . . Rachel Maddow is almost sure to ignore it. On today’s Morning Joe, Weekly Standard editor and radio talk show host O’Connor suggested that Rachel Maddow, accompanied by Dem senator Cory Booker, should escort onto campus Milo Yiannopoulos and other conservative speakers who have been confronted with violence. Maddow should make the point, suggested O’Connor, that violence is “not what we do in America.” O’Connor argued that by their silence, Dems are being hurt by the protests because Americans are seeing opposition to Trump as “violent thugs.” View the video here.
