Rachel Maddow 11/29/17


Last night Rachel talked in detail about the Matt Lauer firing. NBC is her parent company, and she didn't pull any punches when detailing what Lauer is accused of, and in questioning whether it's really true that network executives did not know about this until yesterday.

The most interesting segment to me was something she talked about before getting into the Lauer story. She was talking about Trump's showing of the anti-Muslim tapes, one bit of which is one Dutch boy being beaten up by another. The tape claims that the beater was a Muslim immigrant. In reality, both boys were born in the Netherlands and neither one of them was a Muslim. In connection with this, she recalled a story from 2012, an extremely outlandish lie that Rick Santorum told during the presidential primaries, which had to do with Netherlands law and practices. I had never heard this before, and even now it's hard to believe Santorum would tell this story. (She played a tape of him telling it, and another tape of her interview with a Dutch official at the time, who said it was totally made up.)

Here's a link to the show:

Saw it! Rachel never pulls any punches! I do believe she's MSNBC top anchor and they give her leeway to do and say just about anything; even against her parent company! FNC hates her guts, but there's just not a lot they can do or say than just LIE about what she's talking about! She's too professional and explains what's what in such detail all they can do is move on quickly and beat up on Lawrence or Chris due to their demonstrative personas when speaking so disparagingly about Trump and conservatives!

The Tweets have got to stop! They're actually influences news across the pond! Does this fool realize "everyone" listens and reads what the POTUS thinks about subjects? He's such a disturbed individual, but no more than his family and other supporters who don't seem to care what a loon he's shown himself to be! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had the same problem. A clear case of censorship which means that the censored item was probably worth viewing.

It's interesting how often censorship has been directed at things that were of significant value while things openly available and protected by our courts and other safe guards were not.

I wouldn't put it past NBC to try and quell some of the controversy by not exactly featuring stories about Lauer for the time being! It ruined their headline story on Moore and how those Alabamians could possibly elect an accused child molester and admit they'd rather have him than "any" Dem! These people are truly disgusting and they prove everyday why I should feel that way! Did you check her BLOG outside of NBC site? emoticon emoticon
