MSNBC is reeling in a major way.
Rachel Maddow was the network’s most popular host, but her ratings have gone in the tank with no sign of recovery.
Now Maddow just received the biggest embarrassment of her entire career.
For two years, Rachel Maddow pushed the Russian collusion hoax.
Maddow’s nightly web of conspiracies attracted liberals afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, eager to see Trump thrown from office for being a Russian asset.
Maddow even suggested the Russians might shut down the power grid during a cold snap on the East Coast, which is the type of conspiracy theory that gets Donald Trump supporters banned from social media.
However, the ratings bubble burst for Maddow after Robert Mueller released his report saying there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Maddow and the deranged liberals tried to spin the narrative into an attack on Attorney General William Barr, but the pathetic gambit hasn’t worked on anyone outside of the most hardcore “Resistance” fighters.
And now Maddow isn’t only being labeled fake news from conservatives, she’s being labeled fake news from the paragon of liberal virtue, the New York Times.
The Gray Lady said it would not allow its reporters to appear on Maddow’s show because she’s too partisan.
The New York Times issued the same prohibition for MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, and CNN’s Don Lemon, who bristled and called the decision “short-sighted.”
The Times also disallowed its reporters from appearing on Fox News opinion shows, but they were unlikely to appear there regardless.
The key detail is that the Times’ decision dispelled the myth that Fox is biased, but MSNBC and CNN are simply down-the-middle honest brokers.
These liberal institutions have destroyed their credibility.
The Times not only openly endorsed Hillary Clinton, they said she had over a 95% chance of winning on the day of the 2016 election.
This is a desperate ploy by the Times to claw back some of the trust they lost.
They’re hoping they still have the cachet to influence the 2020 election when they so clearly didn’t in 2016.
The Times emptied their clip with absurd claims that Trump was a Nazi and a white supremacist.
The yellow journalism didn’t work, and it’s too late for the paper to rebuild the reputation they once had.
Their credibility is gone forever.
All they’ve done is pulled off the mask of MSNBC and CNN for many who still think they’re objective sources.
Liberals have hilariously not learned any lessons from their 2016 failure.
They continue to push the “Orange Man Bad” narrative instead of talking about substantive issues that Americans actually care about.
Or perhaps they realize Trump’s economy and unemployment numbers are too good to run against and he hasn’t started any new foreign wars, so they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel with character attacks.
The latest talking point for Maddow and the Democrats is impeachment.
They’re all riled up to impeach the president, but Trump is ready.
He’s even inviting them to try because he knows it will blow up in their faces.
If it were to happen, an impeachment circus might give Maddow—and others—a temporary bump, but it might be the final death blow to her mainstream journalism career.
