The New York Times co-authors of the book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation" made a stunning revelation to Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC on Monday. Kate Kelley and Robin Pogrebin revealed that their essay included the all important admission by the supposed victim that she did not remember the incident in question and that information was removed by the Times editors.
While Republicans were celebrating victories in both North Carolina special elections on Tuesday evening, the host of The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell was yet again slamming President Trump. As always, the MSNBC host viewed the topic through an anti-Trump lens since after leaving the administration, Bolton “could write and deliver” the “most explosive Trump book ever” if he finishes it before the 2020 presidential election.
Brian Stelter, host of the Reliable Sources program on CNN, apparently didn’t take the Labor Day holiday off, instead writing an article warning people that President Trump’s “falsehood-filled tweets” are “still dangerous” since he and “his allies tell the public almost daily not to believe real reporting.” In fact, Stelter stated that “the frequency and predictability of the attacks on the press don't make them any less damaging” because the postings and “televised tirades are gradually eroding Americans’ share sense of reality.”
How many times have we recently seen liberal “journalists” rush to air stories that they desperately hope are true but don’t stand up to scrutiny? The most recent example of this trend came on Tuesday, when MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell could barely contain himself before relying on a single source to accuse President Trump of having improper financial connections with Russia and Vladimir Putin. As you might expect, the hosts of the Fox News Channel’s weekday afternoon program The Five found more than enough things to talk about on Wednesday, when one person on the panel accused the MSNBC host of “Bad Journalism.”
On the Fox News Channel Thursday night, primetime host Tucker Carlson and The Hill’s Joe Concha were turned loose to ridicule MSNBC and Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell, invoking a few of his worst moments alongside his fake news story that claimed President Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans were co-signed alongside Russian oligarchs. They noted that the faux macho man was a case study in how, when it comes to Comcast’s news properties, accountability is non-existent where falsehoods and ugly rhetoric are welcomed.
It hasn’t been a good week for NBC. First, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell had to retract a bombshell claim that Donald Trump’s taxes showed loans co-signed by Russian oligarchs. Now, MSNBC has backed down on an assertion that “children born to U.S. service members outside of the U.S. will no longer be automatically considered citizens. Parents will have to apply for citizenship for their children in those situations.”
During the opening moments of MSNBC’s The Last Word on Wednesday, host and serial fibber Lawrence O’Donnell buckled under pressure from President Trump’s legal team and retracted his dubious report from the previous night. The report suggested the President’s loan from Deutsche Bank was co-signed by Russian oligarchs.
MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell was overjoyed Tuesday night, as The Last Word came on the air, because according to an unnamed source that talked to no one but him, President Trump’s loan from Deutsche Bank was allegedly co-signed by Russian oligarchs. It was a scoop that had to be retracted less than 24 hours after it’s utterance on national TV because its validity could not be verified.
Whenever the liberal media run out of ways to attack someone, they turn to name calling, no matter whether it’s warranted or even true. Wednesday night’s The Last Word, with host Lawrence O’Donnell, was no exception. In his opening monologue, O’Donnell began: “Donald Trump proved once again today that he is the weakest man and the weakest mind that has ever occupied the presidency…”
Unlike their late-night analysis after Tuesday’s debate, MSNBC had their acts together on Wednesday night, putting together in many of their initial takes a near-unanimous message that former Vice President Joe Biden was on the defensive and that it was an abomination how many of the Democratic presidential candidates condemned the Obama administration.
Late Tuesday night, MSNBC struggled to form a cohesive narrative following night one of the second set of 2020 Democratic presidential debates. While some admitted they were “shattered” and “shook up by tonight’s debate” and had some far-left proposals, others hailed Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) as the big winner and even appeared “presidential” at times since “nobody took her down.”
Wednesday night after the much anticipated Mueller hearings, MSNBC hosts scrambled to make something new of the testimony. In spite of their bests efforts, nothing they didn’t already know had presented itself. Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow decided that in order to really understand the situation, Mueller’s staff also need to testify. Yes, that’s right: More hearings.
