MSNBC’s Maddow CAUGHT In Lie About Trump

On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow decided to push a story about a major scandal within the Trump administration in regard to the Trump-Russia meetings transcript.

According to The Daily Caller:

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her show Tuesday with what she thought was another devastating scandal for the White House. According to her expert analysis, President Donald Trump’s administration edited out a question from a Reuters journalist asking whether Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to win the 2016 election during their meeting on July 16 in Helsinki.

“We can report tonight that the White House video of that exchange has also skilfully cut out that question from the Reuters reporter as if it didn’t happen,” Maddow said.

Maddow also claimed the White House nefariously edited out the question from the official transcript. Except, as the Washington Post’s Phillip Bump pointed out, the media’s independent transcripts also don’t include the reporter asking “President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election?”

The omission has nothing to do with a conspiracy on the part of the Trump administration, but rather a change “between the feed from the reporters and the feed from the translator,” as Bump notes. You can even hear the question being asked in the White House version of the video.

Maddow was wrong, and her colleagues called her out for it. This is just another example of a false narrative being pushed by the mainstream media that lacks one basic element, facts!
