Rachel Maddow Warns News Organizations Not to Fall for Forged Documents
A long but excellent A block from Rachel’s show on July 6, where she talks about a document her team received that seemed to show a direct link between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and would thus blow the Trump-Russia story wide open. The problem is, the document was a fake, and Rachel explains why it is a fake, and why it is critical that news organizations be very careful in verifying tips like these, because they otherwise run the risk of discrediting themselves, and most importantly, the Trump-Russia story altogether.
I think someone not too far removed from Trump himself sent that document to Maddow, and has been “shopping” it around to other news organizations. He is that careless, and his team is that careless. But I pray that this investigation continues to go forward. I am becoming very worried something could happen to spike it, and that this Trump nightmare will continue to wreak havoc on our country.
