MSNBC Just Put Themselves to SHAME By Offering LAME Explanation of Susan Rice’s ‘UNMASKING’ [VIDEO]

The media has been doing everything they can to cover for Susan Rice after the “unmasking” controversy unfolded. The scandal has made the Obama administration look pretty bad and it’s left the media scrambling. But the craziest example is, as usual, from Chris Matthews at MSNBC.

Tuesday on Hardball, host Chris Matthews had MSNBC political analyst and Mother Jones D.C. bureau chief David Corn on the show to discuss Susan Rice. And rather than present a reasoned and logical discussion of the facts, they instead stooped to liberals’ favorite gotcha! argument: calling people racist and sexist.

According to Matthews and Corn, the criticism towards Susan Rice is both sexist and racist, because Rice has never done anything wrong. The whole thing, they claimed, was a ruse to “distract attention from the investigation” into Donald Trump’s ties with Russia. “Why is he going after Susan Rice?” Matthews asked. “It’s like he pulls out — he’s like an old deejay. He pulls out the old records from 20 years ago and plays them again.”

Of course, they also had to get in a few insults towards Republicans before insisting that Rice did nothing wrong. “Susan Rice’s job is to watch national security,” Matthews argued. “As she told Andrea today, our colleague, she made it very clear what she was doing was when she saw an American name show up in a surveillance of a foreign perhaps agent, she wanted to know who that was. What’s wrong with that?”

Corn, meanwhile, insisted it’s all because Rice is a black woman. “At the end of the day, we need some element of decency,” she said. “When Rand Paul gets out there and says she’s abused this right, there is not an iota of evidence that she’s abused anything. Calling her Typhoid Mary? She — all we know now is that she did her job. Did she do something wrong? There is no information indicating that. So they are making her, you know, basically they’re defaming her without any reason to do so because she’s a woman. Maybe because she’s a black woman. Maybe because they didn’t like her during Benghazi.”

Of course, rhetoric like this is exactly why Democrats lost last year. And it’s why MSNBC continues to tank in the ratings and why Americans don’t trust the mainstream media. Way to go, MSNBC!
