Former MSNBC Host Says the Outlet is Guilty of ‘Conspiracy Theorizing’ About Trump

Krystal Ball is very liberal and a former MSNBC host who is now admitting from the inside what many already knew: MSNBC has been responsible for “conspiracy theorizing” and that the cable news outlet’s approach to President Trump “has done real damage to the left.”

Taking MSNBC to Task

Appearing on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher, she was asked if she believes “networks like MSNBC, which [she] used to work for, help or hurt progressive causes.”

“Overall,” she replied, “I think MSNBC in the Trump era has done real damage to the left. And I say that with love.”

“I mean, these are my former colleagues, friends,” Ball continued. “Look, the Russia story and what happened there was important, but it was not all-important, and they went so far in the realm of conspiracy theorizing.”

‘They Had Jonathan Chait On!’

“I mean, they had Jonathan Chait on…” Ball said before Maher interrupted her. Recall that Chait was the New York Magazine writer who speculated Trump might be a Russian double agent.

Well, it was a conspiracy,” host Maher said.

“They had Jonathan Chait on to talk about how Trump may have been a Russian plant since 1987,” Ball complained. “This is ridiculous, okay? This is way out from what journalistic facts said, and it’s to the exclusion of other stories that people actually care about – about health care, about trade, about the future of their lives, automation. These things are real, and they don’t get focus when you only look at one thing.”

Ball said, “So, yeah, they built up expectations so much that when the report came out, people were like, ‘Oh, it was no big deal,’ when it was a big deal.”

Maher said it “was the mistake on MSNBC making (Robert Mueller) into this hero,” though most of the media did this.

Good for Krystal Ball

But Maher is right. And kudos to Ball, who obviously shares MSNBC’s politics, yet has respect for the truth.

The entire left and most of the Democratic Party bought into the Russian conspiracy hoax, hook, line and sinker–with MSNBC leading the pack.

Top host Rachel Maddow once attacked Trump for going on conspiracy theory programs like Alex Jones. Does she think her show isn’t a conspiracy theory program? She led with a hoax story every night based on lies and media fabrications until the Mueller report turned out to be a complete dud.

MSNBC has lost all credibility as any sort of serious news outlet. Thank you, Krystal Ball, for reminding us.

  • These are not real journalist, they're mostly little baby Goebbels spreaking propaganda. Except, unlike the Nazi's Reich Minster of Propaganda, the repeated lies are no longer believed by the general public. The results, no one believes anything they say, because of past lies. But do they stop the propaganda, nooooooooo! They double, triple and quadruple down on the lies. You no the old saying, "Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?"

  • wHAT A SHAME JOURNALISTS CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH, I REALLY THOUGHT THEY DID GREAT WORK AND RELIED UPON THEM TO BRING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE TRUTH NOW I REALLY DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING ON ABC, CBS,NBC CNN MSNBC ETC FOX IS ABOUT THE ONLY STATION YOU CAN RELIE ON BUT THANK YOU FOR FINALLY COMING OUT AND SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

  • Russia was a HOAX. Media propagandists lost their status as "journalists" in the eyes of MILLIONS of Americans.

  • I can see more and more news people coming out and speaking the truth. You can only hold on to a lie until you know in your heart you have to come clean. Congrats to Krystal for finally telling us what we know to be the truth.

  • Gee, thanks Ms. Obvious, for telling the few people who watch Maher's trainwreck of a show what more than half of the country has known for years. I will give her major "Atta-boy's" for saying it on his show, let alone at all.
