2019.02.05 Don Jr's Call Logs

For months Maddow inflamed her watchers with the FakeNews that Don Jr. was in contact with "the Russians"... then when the story is debunked, Maddow brings on the accuser (Shifty Shiff), has him repeat the claims, then fails to correct or challenge him or the record. No clarification, retraction or correction, just the FakeNews crickets, chirping distractions so her viewers clues die in darkness.

🗒️ NOTE:
CNN, ABC, NYT may have been FakeNews in propagating the JunkNews in the first place (based on unsubstantiated rumors of unnamed sources)... but at least they had the manners (or felt the shame) to correct their bullshit once caught. So one correction after weeks of hyperventilating speculation might still make them trash, but at least the correction shows they still remember what journalism is supposed to look like. MSNBC shows they forgot (if they ever knew).
