AWKWARD: MSNBC Producers Correct Rachel Maddow as She Spreads More Russia Investigation Conspiracy Theories (VIDEO)
This was awkward.
Top Trump-Russia conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow was debunked by her own chyron as she continued to spread more lies about Mueller’s Russia investigation.
MSNBC producers corrected Rachel Maddow while she lied to her audience about Attorney General Bill Barr’s plan to release Mueller’s report with redactions.
Maddow falsely claimed Bill Barr would be going through Mueller’s report by himself, unilaterally choosing what to redact before the report is released to the public.
“It’s hard to believe that they [Mueller’s team] would be leaving the newly appointed, 68-year-old Attorney General William Barr to himself personally pick through the report to try to figure out what mentions in this 400 page report might pertain to open cases,” Maddow stated as the chyron underneath her correctly stated, “Barr: Special Counsel Is Assisting With Redactions.”
Maddow continued to lie, “They wouldn’t do that. Mueller would have done that. Mueller’s team would have done that as part of producing anything that they handed over outside there own offices — they’ve done that with every other document they have produced in the course of this investigation. You’d assume they’d be able to do that with this document too, but William Barr says, ‘it’s taking them a really long time’ because he’s having to do all that himself.”
Bill Barr’s letter to Congress clearly stated that the Special Counsel will be assisting him with redactions.
“We are preparing the report for release, making the redactions that are required. The Special Counsel is assisting us in the process,” Barr wrote in his letter on Friday.
No wonder why Rachel Maddow’s ratings plummeted since Mueller concluded there was no Trump-Russian collusion — Maddow is a shameless liar.
Tip for @Maddow: if you're going to keep misleading your audience, make sure your producers aren't correcting you in real-time. Here, the chyron accurately states Friday's news Mueller is "assisting" Barr w/ redactions. Meanwhile, @Maddow is falsely claiming the exact opposite: pic.twitter.com/rTSAABngp2

This is truly shocking, no matter how low your expectations are now for MSNBC & Maddow. Just watch it and see for yourself how completely dislodged she is from any semblance of rationality, journalistic responsibility or even basic honesty. It's sad to watch, & there are victims: https://t.co/Yf7PZ5Urqa
