Rachel Maddow And The Continuing Saga Of The Polished Truth

MSNBC’s boyish news reader with the bowl haircut, Rachel Maddow, made no effort to hide her pomposity when she said this on her show on February 17, 2011:  “’I’m here to report that there is nothing wrong in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin is fine. Wisconsin is great, actually. Despite what you may have heard about Wisconsin’s finances, Wisconsin is on track to have a budget surplus this year.”

“I am not kidding. I’m quoting their own version of the Congressional Budget Office, the state’s own nonpartisan ‘assess the state’s finances’ agency. That agency said the month that the new Republican governor of Wisconsin was sworn in, last month, that the state was on track to have a $120 million budget surplus this year. So, then why exactly does Wisconsin look like this right now?”

Poor misinformed teleprompter reader.  Little boy trapped in a woman’s body. 

Rachel Maddow has done it again.  Remember when she fell hook-line-and-sinker for the fake news story that Sarah Palin was calling for an “American-led invasion of Egypt to protect North America?”  Maddow said, “This is not Sarah Palin’s idea.  This is what someone is suggesting for Sarah Palin.”

She cited a memorandum prepared by Robert Lang, director of the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau but failed to note that it outlines $258 million in unpaid bills or expected shortfalls in programs such as Medicaid services for the needy—$174 million alone—and the state owes Minnesota $58.7 million under a discontinued tax reciprocity deal.

Politifact.com became curious about the claims by Maddow and madman Ed Schultz and did some digging.  You can read their findings here.  They call her claims false. I say she’s lying.  A bogus fairytale designed to gin up the union goons.  Too harsh?  Meh.

Hey Comcast execs, what do you think about your clueless primetime crew?
