The Snug / Re: Latest expressions I detest
« Last post by Grumpmeister on Today at 01:17:59 AM »
Jones is the modern day equivalent of the nutter at the corner of the street screaming the end of the world is nigh or that the Royal Family are alien lizard people. The conspiracy content he comes up with is the kind of thing that anybody with an IQ in double figures can immediately tell is just deranged ranting. Is it offensive? Certainly, but no more so than politicians using such tragedies for their own political gain.

Maddow on the other hand is more insidious, using her role as part of the mainstream media in what was once a respected news agency she's gone out of her way to try and legitimise any anti Trump story, celebrating any and all 'expose' no matter how ridiculous or serious the consequences of her daily dose of ranting propaganda could be and every time she has been proven to be at best inaccurate or at worst deliberately lying she ignores it and ploughs on with her next 'story'.

To name a few:

Trump is a Russian agent? Debunked
Russian hackers gave Trump the election? Debunked, yes there was evidence of Russian hacking but the effects were proven to be minimal.
Russia agents may be about to hack into America's power systems in the middle of winter when it's -50? Debunked - based on a story by the Washington Post they removed and apologised for getting wrong.
Trump's watersports sex tape? Debunked. Adam Schiff was humiliated when it was shown that the people he had been talking to about obtaining the tape were a pair of pranksters.
The Steele Report, Maddows personal fetish? Debunked
The 'exclusive' scoop about being sent a fake NSA document to damage her credibility? Debunked by the meta data.
Trump ordered Cohen to lie to Congress? Debunked, the story was inconsistent with is guilty plea.
The Muller Report? Maddow was crying on camera when it came to nothing.
Having Trump's tax returns? Debunked, yes she had some of his tax information but it was almost a decade old and had nothing incriminating. Certainly no evidence of the Russian connection she had been claiming.

Politifact, a Pulitzer prize winning news organisation, examined a number of statements made by Maddow and found that most of them were at best half truths and at worst outright lies.

She is also being being sued for $10 million in a defamation claim for accusing a journalist of being a Russian agent because he writes a few articles on international news as a freelancer for Sputnik News.

All Maddow has accomplished is to feed the paranoia and political divisions that have spread across the country since the election. How many times have we seen news reports of groups like Antifa beating the living daylights out of somebody for no reason because they have been fired up by the rhetoric, misinformation and in some cases outright lies being peddled by a section of the news media that has Maddow as it's figurehead?
