Fake News MSNBC Airs ‘Unlikely But Possible’ Segment



Disreputable media source MSNBC ran a segment yesterday speculating that President Donald J. Trump has been a Russian spy since the 1980’s.

“Chait: Unlikely but possible that Trump has been Russian intel asset since 1987,” said the banner across the screen as New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait speculated wildly. 

MSNBC invited Chait on air to discuss his most recent opinion piece, titled “What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987,” published in the once-revered magazine on Sunday. The segment was presented to the audience as “news.”

In his piece, Chait blatantly admitted that the political left has no actual proof of “collusion” with the Russians, but rather that the president’s detractors are simply making up conspiracy theories.

“And since trying to discern the size and shape of the scandal is an exercise in uncertainty, we focus our attention on the most likely outcome, which is that the story goes a little deeper than what we have already discovered,” he wrote. “Say, that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort told their candidate about the meeting they held at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer after they were promised dirt on Hillary Clinton; and that Trump and Kushner have some shady Russian investments; and that some of Trump’s advisers made some promises about lifting sanctions.”

Twitter rightly scorched the network for its irresponsibility.

“What other theories should we give airtime to under the “unlikely but possible” standard?” asked Daily Caller reporter Peter Hasson.

“Unlikely but Possible: Jonathan Chait cheated on his SATs,” replied New York Post columnist Jon Podhoretz.

“Chait: Unlikely but we decided to put this broken crazy person on national TV anyway,” wrote Fox commentator Stephen Miller.

Unlikely but possible that the moon is made of cheese,” said journalist Michael Tracy.

For an organization that gets awfully indignant when called “fake news,” MSNBC sure is playing fast and loose with the truth.
