59. MALONEY DIDN'T FLATTEN TODD. HE ANSWERED HIS QUESTIONS. Questions Todd had every right to ask.

Nov 2022

This isn't Fox Noise, folks. MSNBC is a real legitimate news organization. It's Todd's job to interview and ask questions and therefore get information. He may ask questions about topics you and I don't want to know about. This isn't scripted news (aka Fox Noise). But Maloney answered those questions calmly and directly. Both men did their jobs in this interview.

It irks me to see people go after people like Todd because they don't say everything people want them to say. It's not the news media's job -- the REAL news media -- to ask questions they already know the answers to (aka Fox Noise). And as a responsible news organization, they have to get all angles as well. That's the difference between MSNBC and Fox Noise. Fox is there to play to their base and do powderpuff interviews. That's not what a real news organization does. Yes, it can get to you. But if it's one thing Fox has done it's given the impression that the media is there to pet you and be your friend all the time. That's not how a real news organization works. Freedom of the press means just that and not the bullshit trash that passes for n*** on Fox. (I won't use that word anywhere near Fox because they just aren't.)

And if you're wondering, I worked in journalism for over three decades. REAL journalism.

That was epic. Meadowoak Nov 2022 #1
