The fallout over the Mueller debacle has hit the media hard. It’s not over by any stretch of the imagination either.
In fact, until the media makes amends with formal apologies, admits what they did, America will simply do what we did this week.
Turn the channel to more reliable sources like Fox News, who crushed CNN and MSNBC in the ratings.
And it is probably no coincidence that two main figures leading the BS charges against Trump just got outed having an affair.
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace is divorcing her husband of 14 years and dating New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt, a regular on her afternoon show.
Schmidt, who at 35 is 12 years younger than Wallace, broke the story of Hillary Clinton’s secret email server and several major revelations about Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Schmidt and Wallace decided they had to disclose their relationship to MSNBC, according to Page Six.
Wallace and Schmidt, an MSNBC contributor, were seen together at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas earlier this month.
She joined MSNBC and NBC News after a career in Republican politics. In 2005 she married Mark Wallace, who helped manage former President George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election win, and was subsequently U.S. ambassador to the United Nations for management and reform. He is now is chief executive of United Against Nuclear Iran. The couple has a six-year-old son.
Nicolle Wallace served as White House communications director under Bush. She was later a senior adviser to Sarah Palin during Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential bid — when Mark Wallace was also an adviser. She was a co-host of “The View” for a year, through August 2015.
It was reported last summer that another New York Times reporter, Michael Barbaro, who hosts ‘The Daily’ podcast, had broken up with his husband Timothy Levin and was dating his female executive producer, Lisa Tobin.
Since joining MSNBC, Wallace has renounced the Republican party and become a virulent critic of President Trump. Last year she revealed that she told Jeb Bush ‘he should have punched’ Trump “in the face” after one of the 2016 presidential primary debates.
She also compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, saying that by “nationalism” Trump meant “white” nationalism, adding: “I watch enough History Channel to know that they cheered at Hitler, too.” Last year, she said: “The Republican Party sucks, but you can still find non-criminal Republicans.”
A self-described “non-practicing Republican,” she has said: “This Republican Party is unrecognizable to me,” she said. “Non-practicing to me means not voting for Republicans if this is what it looks like, but I’m not embarrassed to share a political party with John McCain or the 41st president or 43rd president. That’s about it. I’m trying to think if there’s anyone else.”
