Rachel Maddow is the number one name in left-wing cable news.
Maddow’s show is one of the few left-wing programs that actually attracts an audience.
And now Rachel Maddow faced a major career choice after receiving this surprising offer.
Maddow recently signed a new contract with MSNBC for $30 million per year to host a show one night a week and with the option to produce documentary projects for the network’s streaming service.
But that was only half the story.
A bombshell report by Puck News revealed that CNN President Jeff Zucker offered Maddow a $20 million dollar per year deal to jump to CNN and serve as the anchor for CNN+, which is CNN’s streaming platform.
When CNN offered Maddow this contract, NBC rushed in to deliver an offer that Maddow could not refuse.
Puck News reported:
CNN, for instance, is a huge brand, especially internationally, that Zaslav believes can be transitioned successfully to streaming, even though he knows it is tainted by politically polarized (and rapidly declining) audiences in the U.S. To that end, I’m told Zucker recently offered MSNBC star Rachel Maddow around $20 million a year to anchor the soon-to-launch CNN+ service, which then caused NBC Universal to scramble to promise her more money and less work to stay put, which she did. (A CNN rep confirmed Zucker tried to get Maddow specifically for CNN+ but not the price.) A big, exclusive talent play to establish CNN+ seems like a no-brainer.
CNN is desperate.
None of their current anchors has any ability to draw an audience.
In the month of October, not one CNN show averaged one million viewers per broadcast.
Rachel Maddow – despite her polarizing left-wing politics – is a star that draws in viewers.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker extending a mammoth contract offer to Maddow to front CNN’s new streaming service is an admission that the network’s current lineup is a failure.

The Fake News this discredited “journalist” is now pushing will leave you hopping mad
All of American culture has been polluted by politics.
Now self-proclaimed “journalists” believe it’s fair game to just fabricate Fake News out of the blue.
And the Fake News this discredited “journalist” is now pushing will leave you hopping mad.
Self-proclaimed “journalist” Jemele Hill got run out of ESPN after her unhinged and deranged anti-Trump tweets cratered the ratings for SportsCenter, the network’s flagship program.
Hill was so ill-informed, she thought it was a good idea to promote a boycott of major companies that worked with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones because he was against the anti-American National Anthem protests.
But she quickly learned that wasn’t the case, as many of those same companies worked with her employer, leading to her suspension, and ultimately departure from ESPN.
Hill later latched on with The Atlantic – which was going under before being rescued by The New York Times – where she was free to write nonsensical pieces about politics and culture.
Now, Hill is attacking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) because he voted against the Respect for Marriage Act.
“Mitch McConnell voted against codifying interracial marriage even though he’s in an interracial marriage,” Hill tweeted. “That is some seriously nasty work.”
Mitch McConnell voted against codifying interracial marriage even though he’s in an interracial marriage. That is some seriously nasty work.

This is a common tactic used by Democrats.
They throw an issue with large support into a bad bill, then when Republicans vote against the bad bill, Democrats blast Republicans for supposedly opposing the popular aspect of the bill.
Hill either fell for the political trick, or she’s complicit in perpetrating it as a member of the Fake News Media.
No matter how you slice it, it’s wildly dishonest.
Neither Senator McConnell nor any other Republican voted against the Respect for Marriage Act because of interracial marriage.
Republicans wanted more protections to ensure that the bill would not force religious Americans, who believe that gay marriage violates their religious beliefs, from being forced to take part.
For example, Christian baker Jack Phillips has been put through hell for refusing to bake specialized cakes for both a gay wedding and a transgender celebration.
Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) added amendments that would protect religious Americans and institutions, but a handful of Republicans voted on the bill nonetheless.
The move makes zero political sense because neither gay marriage nor interracial marriage are under any threat, regardless of what Democrats claim – roughly 95% of Americans support interracial marriage, while over 70% support gay marriage, not exactly danger territory.
Pro-life advocate Lila Rose called out Hill’s dishonesty.
“You know that is not why he opposed the bill,” Rose replied. “This comment is very dishonest and designed for likes on the internet and virtue signaling.”
Chad O. Jackson, who was featured in the Larry Elder-produced films Uncle Tom and Uncle Tom II, responded to Hill by pointing out that her entire narrative is “predicated on a false, paranoid notion.”
“Your desire for codification is predicated on a false, paranoid notion that a substantial slice of the electorate wants it banned,” Jackson wrote to Hill. “Settle down.. Breathe… Nobody is trying to ban ‘interracial’ marriage. We just don’t believe the govt should regulate marriage in the first place.”
Hill is the one engaging in “seriously nasty work.”
Hopefully, more people have caught on to the game the Democrats are playing
The New York Times’ infuriating excuse for one company’s exploitation of children will have you seeing red
Donald Trump once said that the Fake News Media is the enemy of the American people.
The past six years have proven him correct.
And The New York Times’ infuriating excuse for one company’s exploitation of children will have you seeing red.
For some bizarre reason, the Left go into defense mode whenever conservatives point out obvious pedophilia and grooming behavior.
It should be easy to unite politically against pedophilia, but the Left would instead rather accuse right-wingers of being “conspiracy theorists” or “threats to democracy.”
And this is after Jeffrey Epstein died under the most mysterious of circumstances while being held in custody for sex trafficking of young girls.
The corporate-controlled press swooped in to defend fashion house Balenciaga after the company released a disgusting ad campaign featuring young kids holding teddy bears in bondage gear.
the brand "Balenciaga" just did a uh….. interesting… photoshoot for their new products recently which included a very purposely poorly hidden court document about 'virtual child porn'

ABC News reported that the photo included “what appears to be an excerpt from the U.S. Supreme Court opinion on United States vs. Williams (2008), which upheld part of a federal child pornography law.”
Balenciaga received so much backlash, the company scrubbed its Instagram page with over 14 million followers.
Yet, The New York Times found it appropriate to provide some damage control for the company.
The Times ran a piece entitled, “When High Fashion and QAnon Collide: Two new Balenciaga campaigns ignited a firestorm that traveled from the internet to Fox News, fueled by allegations that the brand condoned child exploitation.”
The Left always mention “QAnon” when they want to diffuse allegations of pedophilia.
Again, this is after the Jeffrey Epstein saga, knowing that he ran with powerful people, like Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton.
Clinton was literally photographed getting a massage from one of Epstein’s girls.
“The internet is full of trolls,” The Times wrote. “Why did this controversy take off? As online criticism of the campaigns spread, the story was picked up across right-leaning media outlets, including The New York Post and the prime time Fox News show ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’ The show has helped to publicize and mainstream QAnon, the internet conspiracy theory that ‘a group of Satan-worshiping elites who run a child sex ring are trying to control our politics and media.’”
This is a mind-blowing response from The Times.
The paper’s angle is that conservatives fabricated the entire controversy, not that Balenciaga ran a sickening ad campaign and was forced to apologize for it.
If Democrats want to brand Republicans as the “anti-pedophile” Party, that is a label the GOP will likely gladly accept.
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg made a jaw-dropping admission about Twitter you have to see to believe
The Left is showing their true colors in the wake of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
They cannot stand that the platform is being opened up to free speech.
And The View’s Whoopi Goldberg made a jaw-dropping admission about Twitter you have to see to believe.
Democrats remain in full-blown panic mode because they no longer control one of their favorite propaganda machines, Twitter.
Elon Musk forked over $44 billion to restore free speech on the platform, and left-wing radicals are absolutely outraged.
And The View’s Whoopi Goldberg recently made a shocking confession about Twitter.
The hosts brought on one of Democrat’s Hollywood shills, Alyssa Milano, to discuss the platform, and the actress was asked if she’ll remain on the platform.
“Yeah because we can’t cede that territory,” Milano said. “It’s like turf war now. That’s how I look at it.”
“No, no,” Goldberg replied. “Not that. There’s other ones you can come and grab, leave that to them because that is what that is meant to be now. It’s not meant to be any better than what we’re seeing.”
“If we’re not representing our side of – of the political discourse, aren’t we just saying, you know what, you can have Twitter?” Milano asked.
That’s when Goldberg revealed what the Left’s issues with a Musk-owned Twitter actually are – the Left no longer controls it.
“I’ll tell you, some things you have to walk away from until you can get the control you need of it,” Goldberg admitted. “Right now there’s no way to get this control. And so find the ones that you can get and fix and then come back and run that run over.”
That is a truly amazing statement.
Whoopi Goldberg is admitting that the Left previously had complete control over Twitter and could manipulate it as they saw fit, and now that they no longer do, they should leave until they can reclaim it.
This is the Left’s entire mentality on full display.
Decades ago, leftists began the “long march through the institutions,” and they have control of so many halls of power.
They don’t control one avenue of speech — Twitter — and they freak out.
The Left is simply not accustomed to losing in the culture war.
By the way, it should be noted that Musk is not banning any leftists, as the Left did to conservatives for years on the platform – he’s simply not banning conservatives or anyone else for ideological reasons.
The Left struggle to win arguments on a level playing field because so much of what they believe is based on lies.
Unfortunately for left-wing radicals, Twitter was a first mover in the social media space, so it’s going to be incredibly difficult for the Left to build a platform with comparable reach and influence.
