Dear MSNBC: please take Andrea Mitchell off the air [View all]

Her “reporting” if you can call it that, is really misinformation, which we all know is dangerous.

While her misinformation focuses on the situation in Afghanistan (Biden’s first speech today?; no mention of the agreement with the Taliban that TFG made?; sensationalizing the situation; not a single Democratic congressperson has been invited to discuss it while a Republican every damn day… on and on), the misinformation is just as damaging.

It’s well past time for her to retire.
