Trump humiliates the legacy media again

Caption: But – Orange Man Bad!

You?d think that, of all the legacy media hacks, Rachel Maddow would have learned. She was already mocked for weeping on-air on election night, but she came back for more with a much-hyped ?expose? of Trump?s tax returns. That, too, turned into a farce of humiliation and mockery.

Undeterred, Maddow just kept coming back for more. Once again, she?s falling flat on her face. Quote:

Following an announcement Sunday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller?s investigation had cleared President Donald Trump and his associates of colluding with Russia, cable news network MSBNC, which has devoted much of its coverage to speculation over Trump?s Russia-related wrongdoing, saw a precipitous drop in its ratings Monday, The Daily Beast reported.

Meanwhile, right-leaning rival network Fox News coasted, dominating post-Mueller report coverage as the most-watched cable network in total day and primetime. Number one rated cable news show ?Hannity? garnered more than 4 million viewers. In fact, every single Fox News program beat out their CNN and MSNBC counterpart on Monday, according to TV Newser. End of quote.

Tim Pool, one of the best journalists working today, has already argued convincingly that the right are winning the media war. Fox is easily winning in traditional media, and, no matter how much money the plutocrats of ?liberalism? sink into YouTube garbage like The Young Turks, or how desperately they try to censor dissenting voices, conservative channels are also dominating alternative media.

The ?Russiagate? nonsense was a desperate ploy by legacy media ?liberal? hacks to keep themselves relevant and in a job. Quote:

Appearing on ?Tucker Carlson Tonight? Monday, anti-establishment progressive journalist Glenn Greenwald excoriated major media outlets, particularly MSNBC and CNN, for how they covered Mueller?s investigation.

The Intercept founder told host Tucker Carlson that MSNBC ?should have their top hosts on primetime go before the cameras and hang their head in shame and apologize for lying to people for three straight years, exploiting their fears to great profit.?

?These are people who were on the verge of losing their jobs. That whole network was about to collapse,? he said. ?This whole scam saved them. And not only did they constantly feed people for three straight years total disinformation, they did it on purpose, Tucker.? End of quote.

Greenwald is one of the few leftists who can hold their heads up over the last two, sorry years. While the legacy media has busily consigned itself to partisan oblivion, a few mavericks like Greenwald have consistently and bravely bucked the party line and stuck to their principles.

Maddow, like the rest of the sorry crew on the left of the legacy media, just keeps on embarrassing herself as she is once again exposed as a fake news shill.
