During her Wednesday night broadcast, MSNBC’s Racheal Maddow peddled “fake news” that doesn’t even appear on the most liberal of websites.
Maddow ran a segment in which she implied that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a hand to play in President Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.
The segment starts with Maddow reviewing past business dealings that Tillerson had with Russia while he was Exxon Mobil’s CEO.
Maddow focuses on how Exxon Mobil has applied for a waiver that would allow the company to resume drilling for oil in Russia despite U.S. sanctions against the country.
Then Maddow talks about how a handful of other people seemed more likely to be President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, other than Tillerson who Trump had never met before.
The segment concludes with Maddow showing a picture of Tillerson shaking hands with Putin, and asking her audience, “How did Rex Tillerson get that job? He must have come very highly recommended.”
MSNBC and Maddow have run many segments on “fake news” and “alternative facts” but now it seems that they are dealing their own.
