Rachel Maddow Tells Missouri GOP To Get Lost After They Whine About Her Abortion Coverage

From the article:

Rachel Maddow had a response for the Republican-led government in Missouri after they criticized her reporting on the state’s attack on women: Get lost.
“The state government in Missouri has let us know they are upset about our coverage,” the MSNBC host said. “But our reporting on this matter is correct and the state has not substantively rebutted any of it.”

The GOP is, of course, attacking women's freedom, but the essence of the GOP strategy is to deceive voters.

1. A woman as the most watched news host?

Oh what to do? How can we silence her? Women must not have such power!

2. Exactly.

She has the power to shame, but that works only for those in the GOP who can feel shame.

3. I know! The Missouri GOP should sue Maddow

I'm not sure what the cause of action should be, though. Maybe "definition of character"?

4. An excellent idea.

And can they also sue her for telling the truth?

5. Yeah, I'd tell'em to go get stuffed, too

Way to go, Rachel. When the GOP doesnt like what you're doing, then you're doing it right.

6. What she said was much better than "get lost."

She said her reporting had been correct, and MO has not rebutted any of it.

8. The truth is always the easiest to defend.

And the GOP lies about nearly everything.

10. This is why we are guaranteed a free press.

We need journalists to uncover these issues, follow the story, and help us discover the truth through fact. The state of MO is going to be really sorry for disrespecting their women.

17. "the state is taking a page from the Donald Trump playbook and attacking the media for covering it"

This has gotten out of hand. Actually its not out of hand anymore, its yet another normalization of the bizzare. Its now a perfectly acceptable, albeit limited to Republican voters, that any criticism of one of their party's draconian policies, to turn on the news media just for the fact that they dare to even cover it.

20. Agreed on all items.

And the goal is to frame the issues, and the range of acceptable debate, and to frighten the corporate media.

19. GOP strategy is never about substance but always about deception.

I dare anyone to find an exception to that statement that sticks.

21. True.

And their deceptively named policies are a part of that deception.
