MSNBC host went on TV and made this career killing-mistake

Published

MSNBC continues to find itself embroiled in one controversy after another.

These blow ups usually involve the network’s hosts and commentators flying off the handle with unhinged rants about President Trump.

But no one could believe what happened when one MSNBC host went on TV and made this career killing-mistake.

MSNBC’s Brian Williams already survived one career killing scandal after NBC fired him as host of the network’s nightly news program after it was revealed that Williams fabricated stories about his heroic behavior in covering the Iraq War.

Eventually MSNBC brought Williams back to host an 11PM newscast, but it appears Williams has as much trouble with math as he does telling the truth.

During a recent broadcast, Williams and New York Times editorial board writer Mara Gray butchered simple math in discussing a viral tweet that claimed for the 500 million dollars Mike Bloomberg spent on his Presidential campaign he could have instead cut a one million dollar check to every man, woman and child in America.

“When I read it tonight on social media, it kind of all became clear. Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. U.S. Population, 327 million. Don’t tell us if you’re ahead of us on the math,” Williams began.

“He could have given each American $1 million and have had lunch money left over. It’s an incredible way of putting it,” Williams continued.

Gray picked right up on that thread without bothering to realize that the math was ridiculously wrong.

“It’s an incredible way of putting it. It’s true,” Gay said incredibly, as, still, no one on the show stepped in to shut down this ongoing, embarrassing display of innumeracy. “It does suggest, you know, what we’re talking about here, which is there is too much money in politics. It makes it difficult because what we want in politics — the point is to have competition, and the point is to have the best candidates and have people from all backgrounds be able to run. So that gives people real choice, not just super PACS and dark money flooding elections or even just a single billionaire with good intentions.”

Mike Bloomberg is worth a staggering 60 billion dollars.

But not even Bloomberg could afford to send every American one million dollars.

If MSNBC can’t be trusted to get simple math right, how can anyone trust a word that comes out of their mouth?

This wasn’t just a slip up. It passed through producers and they even made a graphic for it.

    I think MSNBC should keep Williams on the air. After all,isn’t this the kind of reporting most news shows in the MSM want? Isn’t this the kind of news the far left wants to watch and educate their children with? Isn’t this what Hollyweird wants?

    Media Math
    I love these numbers things! The other day Brian Williams (CNN News anchor) and Mara Gray told the world that Mini Mike could have sent a million dollars to every American citizen with the $500,000,000 he spent before he dropped out of the 2020 Presidential Race. In reality it would only be a paltry $1.52 and a fraction of a cent. I would like to have all of those fractions of cent if you please.
    If so I could pocket a clean $2,959,999.999999968. My wife is grinning really, really big right now.

    $500,000,000 divided by 327 Million Americans equals $1.52.9051987765849. leaving a balance of $2,959,999.999999968 I like it!

    $500,000,000÷$327,000,000 equals $1.5290519878

    Between today’s NYT and MSNBC, they do not have two rational brain cells to coordinate. These outfits are extremely poor representation for US public media.

    That’s why liberals are so good at spending other people’s money! They are genetically incapable of doing arithmetic let alone math!

CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good

Published

Tucker Carlson isn’t afraid to speak the truth, especially when everybody else is afraid to.

That makes him a major enemy to fake news networks like CNN.

And now CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good.

With coronavirus forcing most of America into quarantine in their homes, anti-Trump news networks are working overtime to pump out anti-Trump propaganda.

They are constantly spreading lies to allege that Trump has allowed the virus to spread, and that every coronavirus-related death is his fault.

But in making these claims the network is outright ignoring many inconvenient truths, as Tucker Carlson pointed out on a recent airing of his Fox News show.

Carlson played a number of video clips showing officials in New York City, where the virus has hit the hardest, downplaying the virus, and even encouraging people not to practice social distancing, which Trump has championed.

In a clip from February 2, New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot touts their preparedness for the virus, and encourages people to continue their lives like normal, even attending an upcoming parade.

“The risk to New Yorkers for Coronavirus is low and our preparedness as a city is very high,” Barbot begins. “There is no reason not to take the subway, not to take the bus, not to go out to your favorite restaurant, and certainly not to miss the parade next Sunday. I’m going to be there.”

Carlson also plays a clip featuring Democrat New York state Senator John Liu stating that “there’s really no need to panic and to avoid activities that we always do as New Yorkers” and that “diseases originate from anywhere or from particular places in the world.”

Along with Liu, Carlson also plays a clip from another Democrat New York State Representative Brian Kavanaugh, who insisted “it is very important that we ensure that we don’t have misinformation and many in the media have been covering this issue as if it’s, you know, a terrible plague that people have to avoid.”

Finally, Carlson details a number of Tweets from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that he posted in earlier in March, encouraging New Yorkers to “go out on the town despite coronavirus.”

If CNN were an honest network, they would talk about facts like these.

But of course, they aren’t an honest network, and only care about smearing President Donald Trump, even when the claims they make aren’t actually true.

Do you approve of President Trump’s response to Coronavirus?

Nancy Pelosi was shaking with rage after Devin Nunes exposed her scheme to take over the media

Published

Devin Nunes isn’t afraid to take on the Deep State and their anti-Trump allies.

That’s why he is one of the Left’s biggest enemies.

And he just left Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage after exposing her scheme to take over the media.

It’s no secret that the mainstream media is run by the Democrat Party.

They spend every on-air moment available to smear President Donald Trump in order to try to defeat him come November.

But thankfully, more and more Americans are realizing that the mainstream media is entirely fake.

And it is people like Rep. Devin Nunes who are on the front lines exposing that fact to the American people.

In a recent interview on The Trevor Carey Show, Nunes blew the whistle on an insidious plan spearheaded by Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to further take over news outlets in order to promote her party’s agenda.

He points out that in the recently passed coronavirus stimulus plan, Democrats attempted to sneak in retirement plans for community newspaper employees.

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that this sort of move is just the first step towards creating outright government-run media outlets, which will undoubtedly support the Deep State’s anti-Trump agenda.

“If you don’t think that 90 percent of the media, including many of the local media, if you don’t think they’re working for the Democrats, you are fooling yourself,” Nunes said. “Why would they put that in there? They put that in there because they want these retirement plans, they want to socialize the news media.”

Nunes goes on to explain that this effort is simply a way to “promote their party to stay in power,” which he says is “not surprising.”

But Nunes explains how efforts like this are actually backfiring, with more and more Americans no longer trusting the media.

“I really think it was a misstep,” Nunes continued. “What they don’t understand now is that we’re approaching now half of America that when they see stuff in the fake news, they actually believe the opposite. They don’t realize that they’re having that effect.”

“It’s starting to backfire on them, not nearly fast enough,” Nunes concluded. “They’re causing panic, they’re really hurting the economy, meaning the press and their Democratic allies.”

This prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus crisis that will leave you speechless

Published

Fake news CNN is peddling panic and hysteria in hopes of boosting their abysmal ratings.

At the same time, they are desperately trying to push a narrative they think will hurt President Trump in November.

And this prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus that will leave you speechless.

CNN has been consistent in their messaging since the onset of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S.

In their biased view, President Trump does not know what he is doing and is single-handedly responsible for all of the heartache, suffering, and death that has come with this pandemic.

CNN also makes sure to remind their audience that Trump acknowledging the origin of the virus – China – makes him a racist.

On Monday night, CNN prime time host Chris Cuomo responded to Trump’s daily coronavirus task force briefing, where Trump said, “Unfortunately, the enemy is death. It’s death. A lot of people are dying, so it’s very unpleasant. It’s a very unpleasant thing to go through.”

Cuomo responded, “He said the enemy is death. The enemy is not death. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, division . . . These are all the things this virus is testing in our society as much as it’s testing our bodies.”

While Trump has been working to give daily updates and provide Americans with much needed facts and sobering information, Cuomo took the time to push the Fake News Media narrative forward and insinuate that Trump and his administration are the enemy of the United States.

Cuomo was partially right in one respect. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, and division – but not coming from the Trump administration.

All of those things have come out of communist China’s propaganda machine amid the coronavirus and America’s Fake News Media is running with it because they hate President Trump and want to see him defeated in November.

The real enemy all along has been and still is the Fake News Media and people like Chris Cuomo who have sowed seeds of division in our country for years and worked directly to push the radical Left’s agenda on American people.

Now they’re pushing communist China’s agenda. And at what cost?
