Rachael Maddow went there tonight, said networks should stop broadcasting tRumps lies

Last edited Sat Mar 21, 2020, 01:06 AM - Edit history (1)

should stop broadcasting his misinformation news briefs because its dangerous. Good on her!

She also broke down at the end of the show talking about Larry Edgeworth, I cried too.



A note about the midnight rerun, the network edited out the very end of Rachael's show & the very beginning of Ari Velcher response

3. Some reporter needs to stand up and shout him down

Call him a liar. Say he is full of shit. Maybe Trump would physically attack him.

Or at least among politicians. Do you really care about anyone except yourself, Mr. Trump?

"The only reporter who stood up to Trump!"

Of course, you can't be stupid about it.

I suspect things would go very Glenn Danzig for him.

26. 100% agree. People barely stand up to him, no wonder he's such a bully.

Maybe now that Larry E, a beloved colleague has died from this disease, the media will wake up and do their job for the sake of us all. (Edit: A few brave souls have, mostly women interestingly from what I've seen. More need to step up.)

Rachel's sign off was heartbreaking.

But can you imagine the next press conference if the camera came on and the only people there were FOX, Breitbart and that crazy woman from OAN.

14. She did a brief mention of a great, funny colleague, who just died of Covid 19, and...

put her head down and sobbed. Silence. Then Ari Velcher took over the next time slot, and quietly said, we're sorry, sorry Rachel.

12. The media echoes the lies again and again into infinity...stop watching or re-tweeting the lies

The networks will have to change their behavior if YOU stop watching them.

13. Rachel was angry

I don't blame her at all. They lost a colleague from negligence. What made people think that this fucking con man cares for people. Stop listening to his fucking lies. Rachel was right do not televise the bastard. Everything he touches dies. Our medical drs and nurses are being pushed to the brink. And millions of people are going to die. He is taking his revenge on all of us, maybe it should be the other way around. He is a vile man.

33. That's right

About 2017. I heard on Randi Rhodes show during the transition from Obama to this thuggish regime they were briefed the Trump jerks and they just blew it off. They thought it was a waste of time. That's negligence. I hope Bannon and Miller contract it, they wanted to see this to bring the country decimated. Putin too. Alot of guilty people are involved in Congress too. This is the unraveling of society, and I'm sure the American people will seek a resolution to this madness. Plus he's still a impeached president.

Best journalist in a generation, and she proved it again tonight.

If anyone has a link to the clip, please post it, I would really like to share it with my friends.

23. "Alternative facts" aren't just another opinion, nor are they...

... the "other side" of some story. They are exactly what the phrase "alternative facts" suggests: Made up shit; bogus crap; lies.

Facts are facts, which is to say they are truth. So there really is no "alternative" to them. But Republicans seem to think that truth is optional.

Anyhow, the media should clearly identify, in real time, when Trump or other Republicans are lying. It's not just a public service in normal times, but could literally be a lifesaver in the current situation.

28. Exactly. He loves standing up there....

controlling the questions from reporters. He's getting his jollies at these pressers instead of his rallies.

We have a pandemic... I don't want to hear from politicians. He is not needed at these press briefings.

Even from Mar lago closed he's a rat in a corner, he's trying to get to his base. All he needs now is Fox news to broadcast the truth and he is finished. But in history these tyrants and despots pay a price his is coming. I truly believe that history will prevail
