View Full Version : Rachel Maddow gets had: treats satire as actual news

It is not surprising that Rachel Maddow, an anchor in MSNBC’s nightly liberal lineup, would come down hard on conservatives for disagreeing with President Obama's Egypt policies. What is surprising—and more than a little amusing—is that one of the conservatives she railed out at on last night’s show doesn’t exist.

In the accompanying clip (which the cowards at MSNBC have since scrubbed from their website), Maddow takes exception with an article by Stephenson Billings of ChristWire.org that calls upon former Alaska governor Sarah Palin to step up and play Joan of Arc in an "American-led invasion" of Egypt.

The only problem with Maddow’s grievance is that Stephenson Billings is a fictional character. And ChristWire.org is a satirical website. As the Atlantic Wire notes, other articles on the website warn readers that the Xbox Kinect is a terrorist training tool and that the Japanese have created scary robot babies which "threaten humanity."

Apparently Maddow isn't quite as smart as he thinks he is.

I don't know. Isn't he the only one who's figured out the impossibility of hitting a missile with another missile?

The very suggestion that Maddow is ever sexual in any commonly understood way is simply horrifying. I guess it's a good thing I didn't pick today to quit drinking. :eek:

It is also the same thing (guy/girl) that supposedly DEBUNKED Reaganonmics by quoting George Bush Sr.'s campaign speeches.
