te: Rachel Maddow’s 17 Most Audacious and Paranoid Russia Hoax Lies
This list of Rachel Maddow’s most audacious, reckless, and dangerous lies surrounding the Russia Collusion Hoax was compiled by the Nation’s Aaron Maté. This is his work, his effort, and well worth your time if you want to understand just how recklessly Maddow deliberately misled her audience for two years and why her ratings have now collapsed by double digits.
Because MSNBC is an openly left-wing news out, basically leftist talk radio with pictures, I don’t spend much energy critiquing it. If you are open about your biases and personal beliefs, go with God, let’s have a debate.
The toxic poison in our media ecosystem comes from outlets like CNN, the Washington Post, NBC News, and the New York Times… Outlets that pose as objective when they are actually to the left of MSNBC.
This Maddow thing, though, is something altogether different. Bias is fine — lying, deceiving, misleading, fear-mongering with fake news, and abusing your perch on a major cable news network is not okay.
I’m a big fan of openly partisan news outlets, but who in their right mind would continue to watch or listen to someone who lied with such shameless abandon? Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are not the top guys on radio (and in Hannity’s case, the top guy on cable news) because they tell us what we want to hear. We trust them. They do not lie to us. And if they get something wrong (which is not very often), it is always a mistake made in good faith and it is always corrected.
But as you will see below, Maddow did not just spend the last two years spreading serial lies and paranoia, she is now lying about her lying. For instance, even though we have the video to prove otherwise, a couple of weeks ago Maddow tried to gaslight her audience into believing she “refused to let myself think about” the compromising video tapes (that don’t exist) we were told Putin had of President Trump.
Maté backs up each item on his list with devastating video … and I do mean devastating.
Rachel Maddow makes Sen. Joe McCarthy and Father Coughlin sound like Plato.
- Maddow Tells Her Audience One Thing While the Facts and Her Chyron Say Another
Maddow lied to her audience with the false claim Attorney General Bill Barr was redacting the Mueller report on his own. This is not only no true, her own chyron at time read, “Barr: Special Counsel Is Assisting with Redactions”
- Maddow’s False Claim About Ignoring Putin Tapes
Just a couple weeks ago after the Mueller Report debunked the entire Russia Collision Hoax, Maddow lied to her audience with the provably false claim she “refused to let myself think about” the Putin tapes (that don’t exist).
Which brings us to…
- Maddow Spreads Evidence-Free Paranoia About Putin Tapes
Maddow told her audience that Putin might use compromising video of Trump (that does not exist) to blackmail him into withdrawing troops.
