Viewers Demand Apology from MSNBC, Rachel Maddow

People are demanding apologies from MSNBC and host Rachel Maddow for insisting that the COVID-19 vaccine would prevent further transmission of the virus.

A clip of Maddow’s show from March 29, 2021, was widely shared on social media, with users calling on Maddow to “retract her statement and apologize.”

“Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person,” Maddow said during the broadcast.

“A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else,” she added. “It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to go get more people.”

According to Fox News: “While the COVID-19 vaccines did prove to be effective against the first strains of the coronavirus, the emergence and rapid spread of the omicron variant, even among the vaccinated, has raised cause for concern. Initial studies have shown that omicron cases feature milder symptoms than their predecessors but are more contagious.”

Given the ongoing surge in coronavirus cases in the U.S. with a 62% vaccination rate, critics laid into MSNBC.

“It’s wild how there are no consequences for all these vaccine lies,” sports journalist Clay Travis tweeted. “If you wonder why many are skeptical of the covid ‘vaccine’ it’s because they remember what they were told about how effective the vaccine was. All that Rachel Maddow says here is untrue.”

“Will she retract her statement and apologize?” Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy tweeted.

Joy Reid blasts Rittenhouse, Kavanaugh for ‘male white tears’

MSNBC’s Joy Reid said in a recent TikTok video that America has a penchant for “male white tears” that allowed Kyle Rittenhouse and Brett Kavanaugh to skirt accountabilty.

“In America, there’s a thing about both white vigilantism and white tears, particularly male white tears. Really, white tears in general, because that’s what Karens are, right? They Karen out and then as soon as they get caught, bring waterworks. White men can get away with that too, and it has the same effect,” Reid said.

The MSBC host is known for making racially divisive comments on her show The ReidOut.

Last year, Reid sparked controversy after calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Clarence.” It was a reference to “Uncle Tom,” which is a derogatory term for a black person regarded as being willingly subservient to white people.

Rittenhouse, 18, is on trial for murdering two people and wounding another. Last week, he had an emotional breakdown during his testimony about the events that transpired during the night of the shooting. Many prominent left-wing pundits and celebrities, including Reid and LeBron James, mocked him for crying.

BREAKING: Judge bans MSNBC from Rittenhouse trial

The Wisconsin judge presiding over Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial banned MSNBC from the courtroom after one of its producers followed the jury bus, attempting to take pictures of jurors on Wednesday evening.

Judge Bruce Shroeder addressed the matter in a brief statement on Thursday afternoon.

“I have instructed that nobody from MSNBC News be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial,” Schroeder said from the bench. “This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following a jury bus, that is a very … that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.” 

On Wednesday night, a local news outlet reported that a producer for NBC News was arrested after allegedly trying to take photos of the jurors. The Kenosha Police Department said the man didn’t take any pictures, but they did charge him for a traffic violation.

“The police stopped him because he was following in the distance of about a block and went through a red light, pulled him over, and inquired of him what was going on and he gave that information. He stated he was instructed by [a supervisor] in New York to follow the jury bus,” Schroeder said.

“There was no breach of security regarding the jury, nor were there any photographs obtained,” Kenosha police said.

NBC News identified the employee as a freelancer and denied he’d been told to follow the jurors.

“While the traffic violation took place near the jury van, the freelancer never contacted or intended to contact the jurors during deliberations, and never photographed or intended to photograph them,” NBC News said in a statement. “We regret the incident and will fully cooperate with the authorities on any investigation.”

The incident is still under investigation.

MSNBC pays Rachel Maddow to work less

NBCUniversal is doling out a big payday to get Rachel Maddow to stay home more.

Last month, the liberal TV host was reportedly considering leaving the show to start her own venture. However, information leaked that she decided to sign a new contract with MSNBC.

According to sources familiar with the situation, Maddow accepted an offer of $30 million per year to stay with MSNBC through the 2024 election.

However, Maddow’s long-running nightly show will end next year. Instead, she will host a weekly program set to air about 30 weeks out of the year.

Officials say that the new deal affords NBCUniversal more time to figure out an eventual replacement for Maddow.

“I don’t think they have any clue what they are going to do when she leaves,” a person close to the situation told The Daily Beast.
