One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their coverage on November 12 shows both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour.
From Friday’s (February 16) Morning Joe on MSNBC:
Joe Scarborough: “The coalition of the ascendant, energized, all you have to do is look at what happened in Alabama, black turnout higher in Doug Jones’ off-year special election race than it was for Barack Obama. That remains the most remarkable statistic of this year and the reason why Republicans should be shaking in their boots right now.”
