WaPo Critic Bashes Maddow For Reporting On The Unsubstantiated Steele Dossier
The MSM has taken a lot of liberties when it comes to reporting. They have skewed events so much so that Trump has called out CNN for being fake news and the public didn't even batt an eye, as they see the bias and mistruths coming out of the MSM as well. But it is unusual for a Liberal media source to go after their own and WaPo did just when one of their critics came after Maddow for misleading the public and legitimizing the Steele Dossier numerous times.
"The case against Maddow is far stronger. When small bits of news arose in favor of the dossier, the franchise MSNBC host pumped air into them. At least some of her many fans surely came away from her broadcasts thinking the dossier was a serious piece of investigative research, not the flimflam, quick-twitch game of telephone outlined in the Horowitz report. She seemed to be rooting for the document.
Isikoff: Do you accept that there are times that you overstated what the evidence was and you made claims and suggestions that Trump was totally in Vladimir Putin’s pocket and they had something on him and that he was perhaps a Russian asset and we can’t really conclude that?Maddow: What have I claimed that’s been disproven?Isikoff: Well, you’ve given a lot of credence to the Steele dossier.Maddow: I have?Isikoff: Well, you’ve talked about it quite a bit, I mean, you’ve suggested it.Maddow: I feel like you’re arguing about impressions of me, rather than actually basing this on something you’ve seen or heard me do.

Maddow is not alone many of the MSM hosts will report on unsubstantiated information. She just went overboard with it and then had the gall to lie about how she reported it. This is why people don't trust the MSM anymore. It's not just the bias, it seems they are struggling to even report the truth.
