I cannot stop laughing. You all know my attitude towards Western so called mainstream media (MSM), but this is too good. From Glenn Greenwald about Rachel Maddow and her so called "show".
A Court Ruled Rachel Maddow's Viewers Know She Offers Exaggeration and Opinion, Not Facts."Maddow’s
show is different than a typical news segment where anchors inform
viewers about the daily news," an Obama-appointed judge ruled.
LOL. Throwing out a lawsuit by OAN (One America News) against Maddow on the account of her calling OAN "Russian propaganda", the judge concluded:
On one hand, a viewer who watches news channels tunes in for facts and the goings-on of the world. MSNBC indeed produces news, but this point must be juxtaposed with the fact that Maddow made the allegedly defamatory statement on her own talk show news segment where she is invited and encouraged to share her opinions with her viewers. Maddow does not keep her political views a secret, and therefore, audiences could expect her to use subjective language that comports with her political opinions.Thus, Maddow’s show is different than a typical news segment where anchors inform viewers about the daily news. The point of Maddow’s show is for her to provide the news but also to offer her opinions as to that news. Therefore, the Court finds that the medium of the alleged defamatory statement makes it more likely that a reasonable viewer would not conclude that the contested statement implies an assertion of objective fact.
