MSNBC host Rachel Maddow Makes Fool of Herself…Again – Watch
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was roasted on social media after she claimed that her network doesn’t air “untrue things.” It was on her Tuesday program when Maddow ludicrously claimed her network would never knowingly broadcast things they knew not to be true—despite the obvious evidence that they’ve been doing that exact thing for years.
She was discussing former President Donald Trump’s arraignment in the classified documents case and declaring in advance that she would censor his (then) upcoming speech from his Bedminster, N.J. golf club.
Listen to her hypocrisy: “I need to say that former President Trump has just started making public remarks, just as he did on the evening of his first arraignment on criminal charges… Now tonight, after his arraignment on federal felony charges, he’s speaking again, this time to an audience of his supporters that’s gathered for a campaign fundraiser tonight at his Golf Club and summer home in New Jersey.
We knew heading into this that he was planning to make these remarks. We are prepared for his pre-fundraiser remarks tonight to again be essentially a [suddenly looks nauseous] Trump campaign speech.
Because of that, we do not intend to carry these remarks live.”
She had one more line that was simply priceless:
“As we have said before, in these circumstances, there is a cost to us as a news organization to knowingly broadcast untrue things.”

However, many people on social media were quick to point out that MSNBC has a long history of airing false or misleading information.
Here’s a mash-up of her false vaccine claims posted by Dave Rubin to his “Rubin Report” Twitter account:

And here is another case where she was just dead wrong:
“Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person,” Maddow proclaims in 2021. She was proved to be spectacularly wrong, of course, as we all know. “A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus [dramatically shrugs]—the virus does not infect them, the virus does not then use that person to go anywhere else.”
