Maddow’s Fake News Fiasco
In a typical example of hyped up fake news stories against Donald Trump, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow wasted almost an entire show sensationalizing the fact that they had illegally got hold of Trump’s 2005 tax return only for the audience to eventually find out that Donald Trump had paid his taxes in 2005.
There was no news story. It was another piece of fake news.
This time, however, the fake news fiasco backfired on Maddow, who saw a steep drop in her ratings the following day, down 36 percent.
The drop was even sharper in the key demographic of 25 to 54-year-olds, which saw a fall of 54 percent.
Maddow received criticism from all sides after she and journalist David Cay Johnston revealed Trump’s tax forms on national television.
People are fed up with the biased reporting of the fake new mainstream media. And about time too!
