Rachel Maddow is one of the biggest names in the liberal media.
Maddow hosts the highest rated show on MSNBC which Maddow uses to advance a far-left and anti-Trump agenda.
But Rachel Maddow made this confession in court that could change her life forever.
The conservative news channel One America News Network sued Rachel Maddow for ten million dollars after Maddow ranted that the cable network was “paid Russian propaganda.”
“In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right wing news outlet in America is really literally [sic] paid Russian propaganda. Their on-air politics reporter (Kristian Rouz) is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government,” Maddow falsely claimed.
To defend Maddow from this lawsuit, her lawyer Theodore Boutrous Jr. offered up a novel in argument.
In a court filing, Boutrous, Jr. claimed that Maddow offers opinions and that her statement of beliefs should not be taken seriously as facts.
“…the liberal host was clearly offering up her ‘own unique expression’ of her views to capture what she saw as the ‘ridiculous’ nature of the undisputed facts. Her comment, therefore, is a quintessential statement ‘of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.’” Maddow’s lawyer argued.
It was only a matter of time before Maddow found herself in hot water over the baseless Russian collusion conspiracy theory.
For two years Maddow pumped her viewers’ heads full of fairy tales about Donald Trump and his associates as being treasonous Russian agents and that investigators were on the verge of exposing the President’s corrupt bargain with Moscow.
In the short term, this paid off big league for Maddow.
Maddow goosed her ratings to the point that on occasion Maddow bested Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity for the title of top rated cable news host.
But the ratings sugar high came crashing down when special counsel Robert Mueller finally released the findings his team of Democrat prosecutors compiled after nearly two years of cutthroat tactics to try and frame the President and his associates as being Russian agents.
Mueller’s Democrat attack dogs were forced to admit a humiliating failure and confirmed what all Americans could have told them from day one: There was no evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Americans not immersed in the fake news media hoopla over the Russian collusion story already knew the story was a hoax.
But Rachel Maddow’s viewers were in a state of shock.
Even Mueller’s rogue gallery of Democrat courtroom thugs couldn’t dredge up one speck of evidence to back up the fantasies Maddow spun nightly for years.
This was a shock to their system and they reacted as one would expect when you find out you were betrayed by someone you put great trust in.
Maddow’s viewers turned the channel.
In the aftermath of Mueller’s report, Maddow lost hundreds of thousands of viewers.
The first six months of 2019 – Attorney General William Barr released the Mueller report’s key findings in late March – saw 800,000 viewers flee Maddow’s program.
Now Maddow is bookending the year by admitting in court that her viewers should not take her seriously or literally.
