MSNBC showed their bias for Donald Trump by carrying Trump’s incoherent “press conference” live and in full while tape delaying Hillary Clinton’s speech.
Executives at MSNBC have made their Trump bias clear in the past, but the network hit a new low when they chose to televise a Donald Trump press conference that was long on self-promotion and ego and tape delayed the speech of one of the Democratic candidates who is offering real solutions and vision for the country.
The decision by MSNBC was a ratings grab, but at a deeper level the network is helping to create an uninformed electorate by shamelessly promoting the one candidate in the race who is the definition of empty fluff. Donald Trump is the embodiment of the replacement of news as entertainment.
MSNBC’s Brian Williams tried to blame Hillary Clinton for their decision not to televise her speech. Williams said that Clinton chose to come out and speak during Trump’s press conference. MSNBC insinuated that if Clinton would have known her place and waited for the man to quit speaking, they would have covered her speech live.
There can be no doubt whose campaign MSNBC is prioritizing. MSNBC has sold out their viewers as they are buying into the Trump hype. MSNBC disrespected Hillary Clinton by choosing to show the antics of a reality television clown.
Cable news doesn’t care about informing the electorate, and that point was driven home loud and clear when MSNBC chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
