Rachel Maddow Flips Out On Hagan For Skipping TV Debate [VIDEO]


Liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is actively rooting for Democrats this November. With races so close around the country, it’s understandable why she’s on edge. But she went over the edge Tuesday night.

North Carolina had a Senate debate Tuesday, but only one candidate showed up.

Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan, in a very tight race, decided to skip the debate, her campaign saying they only agreed to three debates, and this would be number four.

But the debate was scheduled, the TV time was set aside, and Republican challenger Thom Tillis showed up. So it was broadcast across the state — with only one candidate.

Tillis had an empty chair next to him and an hour to speak to North Carolinians without an opponent.

This free airtime in a hotly contested race was too much for Maddow, who went off on Hagan for skipping it. “The moderator explained that Thom Tillis’ answers wouldn’t be timed, they were otherwise planning on timing them, because nobody else needed to talk!”

“So, for you, voters, we present this hour long conversation with just the Republican candidate. On TV. For an hour. Uncontested,” Maddow exclaimed. “So he can tell you what he thinks without any time constraints and without anybody rudely interrupting. Two weeks before Election Day. Did I mention this race is basically tied? I did mention that.”

Pew Study: Drudge Report More Trusted Than CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS


Independent media titan beats mainstream networks

by Paul Joseph Watson | October 21, 2014

A Pew Research study has found that the Drudge Report, the most pre-eminent independent media source on the web, is trusted by the American public more than CNN, MSNBC, ABC, or CBS.

While the likes of MSNBC and CNN are distrusted by 22% and 20% respectively in the poll, only 9% of respondents said that they distrusted the Drudge Report, a figure on a par with NPR.

The Washington Post, the New York Times and the Huffington Post are all more distrusted than Drudge.

Drudge’s bracketing with the likes of NPR, BBC and Bloomberg suggest that the high level of trust is not merely because the respondents haven’t heard of the Drudge Report, a factor that probably explains why the likes of Think Progress and the Daily Kos appear near the bottom of the list.

The study found that Rush Limbaugh, Fox News and the Glenn Beck Program were the most distrusted news sources, which is probably due to the fact that all three offer staunch conservative views likely to cause polarization amongst liberal respondents to the poll.

In general, trust in mainstream press continues to collapse, with a September 2014 Gallup poll revealing Americans’ confidence in the media’s ability to report “the news fully, accurately, and fairly” returning to an all time low of 40%.

In addition, many of MSNBC’s flagship shows, such as Morning Joe and The Rachel Maddow Show just posted some of their lowest quarterly ratings results ever, emphasizing how Americans are turning away from network media and getting their news from more varied and independent sources.

“You know there’s a problem with the media when Al-Jazeera is trusted more than NBC, CNN, and MSNBC,” remarks Zero Hedge.

NBC medical correspondent shows zero concern for public health


A doctor who made headlines back in 2010 during the swine flu scare when she told MSNBC viewers, “just get your damn vaccine” didn’t show such concerns for public health when she was caught violating an Ebola quarantine in order to pick up her favorite soup.

NBC Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman was spotted on a food run in New Jersey despite being under a 21 day quarantine order after her return from West Africa during which Snyderman and her team were exposed to Ebola victim Ashoka Mukpo, who works as a cameraman for the network.

“Witnesses claimed the physician and broadcaster wore sunglasses and a ponytail as she pulled up outside the eatery and a man dashed in to grab the order,” reports MailOnline.

Both Snyderman and NBC News refused to comment on the story.

“The NBC crew remains symptom-free, so there is no reason for concern of exposure to the community,” spokeswoman Dawn Thomas said.

However, it can take up to three weeks for symptoms to show and some evidence suggests that individuals who are asymptomatic can still spread the disease.

NBC News President Deborah Turness said the network had, “agreed with state and local health authorities that our team will not come to work, and they will stay at home.”

By violating the quarantine order, Snyderman is displaying little concern for public health, a stance that differs from her tone during a 2009 appearance on MSNBC during the height of the swine flu panic when she ordered Americans to, “just get your damn vaccine.”

“Forget the conspiracy, listen to our government agencies, these guys are telling the truth, you know there’s no conspiracy here folks – just get your damn vaccine!” said Snyderman during her appearance on the show.

In reality, government agencies were not telling the truth about the swine flu vaccine according to Wolfgang Wodarg, head of health at the Council of Europe, whose investigation found that the outbreak was a “false pandemic” driven by drug companies that stood to make billions of pounds from a worldwide scare.”

Primarily as a result of Snyderman and her ilk creating hysteria by overhyping the threat posed by swine flu, millions of people worldwide received a vaccine that they didn’t need, which in some cases caused illnesses, and which wasted millions of dollars in public health funds.
