    You know - this just reiterates why I don't like 24/7 news.

    Remember when the false report came out against Bush and his military service? Back then things were at least somewhat respectable - not anymore. True journalism, investigative reporting and factual reporting has gone out the window.

    And that is summed up in the fact that she responded to this entire situation with a TWEET on a website.
    Did she not mention it on her show? Even in passing?

    wow.

    The article might just be misleading - but I read this and busted a gut:

    The video has since been scrubbed from MSNBC’s website. And to her credit, Maddow recognized the flub via Twitter:
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Ok I thought I could get through that without cracking myself up... and I just couldn't.
    I thought the thread was gonna say Rachel Madcow falls for a fake woman

    Yes, she reported a fake story, but The Blaze spun their reporting saying she was mocking conservatives (in general) and Sarah Palin. She never mentions conservative AND she specifically said that this had nothing to do with Sarah Palin herself. She actually did better reporting on a fake story than The Blaze (Glenn Beck) did on the real story.

    So the facts were completely false, but the reporting was good so that's good enough for you. Now, if it had been Glenn Beck who did this, I'm sure you'd give him the same pass, fair guy that you are, right?

    When i said she did good reporting, I meant she didn't spin any of the supposed 'facts'. Whereas Glenn Beck's web site spun the story about her. But you have to expect this from the Beckster.

    EDIT:

    Rachel just talked about last night, she said of Beck "How do we know that isn't satire as well"

    I don't give her any credit. I think she ought to resign.

    If I were sourcing material for this forum!! I'd look beyond a "news source" called Christwire.

    What a complete bumbling idiot.

    I think Glenn Beck ought to resign because he smeared a Holocaust survivor.
