JOURNALISTIC JIHAD: Maddow’s Ratings TANKED Then Things Got Worse
Rachel Maddow tried to use Donald Trump for ratings and the stunt backfired.
Maddow received criticism from all sides after she and journalist David Cay Johnston revealed Trump’s tax forms on national television.
Geraldo Rivera said it was Maddow’s “Al Capone’s Vault” moment, referencing a 1986 report in which he opened the mobster’s vault live, to find little of value.
On “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly said Maddow’s broadcast is the latest event in a “circus of ideology and cynicism” surrounding the president.
Additionally, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) pointed out that Trump’s tax rate reflected on the forms was far greater than that of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is often critical of those who don’t “pay their fair share.”
“Since Senator Sanders is such a good socialist, I think he’d want to pay his fair share. I’m expecting news any day that he’s gonna send a couple hundred thousand into the IRS so he can pay his fair share,” Paul said.
Maddow will have a difficult time recovering from this one, as she exposed that she is indeed a media hack.
Personally, I’d like to see her hang in there; for comic relief.
