MSNBC OVER HYPES THEY HAVE TRUMP TAX RETURN FROM OVER A DECADE AGO …
Its exactly this type of investigative journalism that has MSNBC with less viewers than blogs do readers. In an effort to embarrass and destroy President Donald Trump, they instead have unwittingly helped him. Trump’s 2005 tax returns showed he made a lot of money. We already knew that, Trump is a successful business man. The 2005 return also shows that he paid a lot of taxes, $38 million to be exact.
The White House said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes in 2005 — on $150 million in earnings — offering a small glimpse at the president’s personal finances, which Trump has so far kept almost entirely private.
The administration offered those details in a statement after journalist David Cay Johnston published two pages of tax information about the president, apparently from Trump’s 2005 return. The revelations were simultaneously broadcast on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow” show, which included an interview with Johnston. Based on the information on the two pages, Trump paid an effective tax rate of about 25 percent.
If MSNBC wanted to do real investigative journalism, maybe they might want to discover how a private citizen’s tax return was illegal gotten?
SHE’S BACK …
Greta Van Susteren is reported to be headed to MSNBC. Her new show will be at the 6 PM time slot and named ‘For the Record’ as opposed to the ones she left at Fox News, ‘On the Record’. Greta has now been at CNN, Fox News and now MSLSD. The media shake up continues. We are going to need a score card with all the recent changes. Hopefully Greta can get back into covering crime and legal issues, rather than politics. I do wish her well and good luck at MSNBC, she is going to need it.
Greta Van Susteren is joining MSNBC, taking over the channel’s 6 p.m. time slot with a new show called “For the Record,” the network announced Thursday.
Van Susteren’s show will feature both news and analysis, working as a bridge from MSNBC’s dayside news shows into its more opinion and analysis-focused primetime. She starts on Jan. 9, and the show will be based out of Washington D.C.
“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a statement. “Her broad range of experience and sharp news judgment will be of great value to MSNBC as we build on our momentum going into a new year and a new administration.”
Her show replaces Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect” time slot, which ended in December.
“I’m thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC,” Van Susteren said. “The network is the right destination for the smart news and analysis I hope to deliver every day, and I look forward to joining the talented journalists and analysts I respect there.”
FOLKS … YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP.
Brian Williams is the face of fake news. He was let go from his anchor position by NBC News for exactly that. Now this guy has the nerve to talk about fake news?
For years I’ve wondered if former NBC news anchor Brian Williams is an aspiring stand-up comic. What he said last night on The 11th Hour sealed it — this guy can make people laugh, albeit not always intentionally.
Williams’s repeated episodes of fictional story telling fobbed off as news, often accompanied by exaggerations of his journalistic heroics, led to his downfall from NBC in 2015. He was back seven months later in a lesser role, consigned to the purgatory that is late night on MSNBC.
Rather than tell you outright what Williams said, I defer to a video of his remarks. Better to hear it directly from him.
Yes, Williams actually said that, and while managing to keep a straight face. Just giving the guy credit where it’s due.
His decrying of “fake news” suggests that MSNBC is no place for this sort of thing. But if that were true, shouldn’t MSNBC refrain from having Brian Williams — of all people in the network’s employ — report on fake news to begin with? At the very least, shouldn’t some sort of disclaimer run across the bottom of the screen, something to the effect — “Warning: MSNBC anchor condemning fake news has repeatedly engaged in the practice.”
The Left Loses Thier Minds … Chris Matthews on Trump Protests: What Kind Of Statement Is There To Make? They Lost
THE LEFT BETTER GET THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS OF XANAX FILLED BEFORE OBAMACARE IS SCRAPPED …
The LEFT is still losing their collective minds as they cannot come to grips that they lost and Donald Trump is the president-elect. To see their constant angst and whining just shows how bias they truly are and were and how in the tank they were for Hillary Clinton.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski calls out Democrats for hypocrisy over FBI Director Comey … Scarborough Mocks Pro-Clinton Media, “I Have Been Stunned by the Spinning & Reporting this Weekend”
SOME ON THE LEFT ARE COMING TO REALITY WITH HILLARY CLINTON, HER ACTIONS AND THEIR REPORTING …
“This was a great, credible man with great integrity a week ago. So I don’t really get that. What if there is something big? We’re not going to say it was so outrageous. The bottom line is this all goes back to the server, something she shouldn’t have done, something that was way more than a mistake.
Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski ripped Democrats on Monday for hypocritically attacking FBI Director James Comey in the wake of the re-opened investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server use.
Comey set off a political explosion on Friday after a letter to Congress announcing that emails related to Clinton’s server were found on Anthony Weiner’s computer during a separate investigation into his sexting with an underage girl.
Weiner, a former congressman who resigned in 2011 because of a similar scandal, is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Democrats came down hard on Comey, with Clinton calling his letter “deeply troubling.” Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) accused him of breaking federal law.
Brzezinski, a supporter of Clinton, has nevertheless criticized the Democratic nominee harshly for her use of a private email server and wavering explanations for why she had one.
“This was a great, credible man with great integrity a week ago,” she said of Comey. “So I don’t really get that. What if there is something big? We’re not going to say it was so outrageous. The bottom line is this all goes back to the server, something she shouldn’t have done, something that was way more than a mistake. Way more.”
Brzezinski called it a “self-inflicted, massive wound.” Noting she has continually ripped Republicans for nominating a figure like Donald Trump, Brzezinski said Democrats had put up someone under FBI investigation.
