Rachel Maddow Show
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow wants President Trump's daily coronavirus press conferences to be taken off the air, because lives depend on it. Oh, and hope in the midst of these turbulent times? We cannot have that! She concluded her brief screed by suggesting that continuing to air them would lead to more people dying! Anyway, the progressive commentator made the outlandish remarks on her Friday show where accused Trump of spreading misinformation and false hope.
Even after the first reactions Wednesday night to President Trump’s address over the coronavirus, MSNBC pundits Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and guest/former Biden aide/Ebola czar Ron Klain continued to attack Trump administration as a “failure of leadership,” having acted in an “absolutely unconscionable” way by not having widespread testing, and engaging in “politically convenient disinformation.”
Predictably, MSNBC reacted to President Donald Trump’s Wednesday night address on the coronavirus with scorn, venom, vitriol, and downright fear that the Trump administration isn’t looking out for the safety of the American public. In various points throughout the first segment, the speech was panned as a “distraction,” “strange,” “weird,” “worrying,” and mocked as poorly delivered.
MSNBC pundit and left-wing heroine Rachel Maddow spent Thursday’s show interviewing failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren and, predictably, a portion centered on Maddow’s inference that her lack of support among voters was sexist and a sign that the president “can’t be any woman ever.” At minimum, she fretted that this was “a death knell in terms of the prospects of having a woman for president in our lifetimes,” having left women “bereft.”
Liberal pundit Rachel Maddow could barely contain her excitement at the onset of her eponymous MSNBC show on Wednesday night, boasting “this is not a dream” after House Democrats finally voted to impeach President Trump. And then at the end of her show, she went going gaga for Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), swooning that’s been on “quite an odyssey” over the course of the impeachment inquiry.
New York Times media reporter John Koblin made the front page of Monday’s Business section with “As News Drives Late Night, Anchors Join A-List,” which snuck in ideological bias and promoted MSNBC host (and Russia-gate obsessive) Rachel Maddow with a photo talking to late-night host Stephen Colbert. Yet again, the Times promotes and celebrates the mere fact of liberals talking to liberals, with the anti-Trump ideological content unacknowledged, while liberal Times readers experience the joy of raeding about their left-wing heroes on both sides of the desk.
There comes a time in life when you have to take the loss and admit defeat when you fail, unless you are Hillary Clinton and the media powerhouse that supported her, that is. Yes, the never-ending pity party continued as Clinton appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show Wednesday as part of a tour to promote her and her daughter’s new book, Gutsy Women.
If you happen to be drinking coffee and reading the print New York Times this coming Sunday, a word of warning: Put your drink down first or you might gag on the long, very long, profile of “oracle” Rachel Maddow. The online version by Amanda Hess trumpeted, “This Is the Moment Rachel Maddow Has Been Waiting For.”
It's always amusing when reporters insist that they're not "stenographers to power," but when you look at their interviews with Democrats, they often come across as stenographers -- extremely accomodating, and not at all challenging. Take for example, Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut in his interviews on the Ukrainian kerfuffle on Wednesday. None of his three national TV interviews seriously raised the idea that he or other Democratic senators pressed Ukraine in a similar way to President Trump to cooperate with their domestic political goals.
Rachel Maddow touted another Trump scandal on September 6, that the Air Force was putting "taxpayer money directly into the president's pocket" by using Glasgow Prestwick Airport near his Turnberry resort in Scotland, according to Politico. But Byron York reported "The only problem with the Politico story was that it was not the whole story. In fact, it omitted so much important information that it hardly qualified as a story at all."
Just hours after MSNBC’s John Heilemann compared the idea of holding migrant children and their families in detention centers as they await adjudication of their asylum claims to “concentration camps,” primetime host Rachel Maddow had equally hyperbolic analysis. According to Maddow, the migrant detention centers are “kind of like Guantanamo.”
Ed Whelan at National Review objected on Friday to a Rachel Maddow segment on MSNBC Thursday night strongly implying that Trump judicial nominee Steven Menashi is a white nationalist based on a paper he wrote on "Ethnonationalism and Liberal Democracy." Menashi was writing about Israel -- and yet the word "Israel" never passed Maddow's lips
