  • MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dedicated significant airtime to a theory that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia

What has been widely reported as her biased coverage of the Russian Federation investigation prompted the New York Post to give Maddow a top spot in its mock "Mueller Madness" bracket of Trump critics.

Former MSNBC co-host Krystal Ball attends an event in New York City on April 22, 2013.

In a Thursday segment on The Hill's online streaming service, Krystal Ball, the former host of MSNBC's now-cancelled midday show The Cycle admonished the network for its incessant coverage of the Russian Federation investigation.

Mueller's testimony earlier than two Home committees Wednesday used to be largely regarded as a "trouble" for Democrats and opponents of President Trump despite MSNBC pushing the collusion account.

"Russia conspiracy was great for ratings among the key demographic of empty nesters on the coasts with too much time on their hands", said Ball, who now hosts an inside-baseball streaming political talk show for The Hill.

Former MSNBC host Krystal Ball says Rachel Maddow and others at the network have "got some explaining to do" for their Russian Federation coverage since 2016.

Ball began by saying, "Now, this critique is not meant to be personal to the anchors and the commentators there, many of whom I know, some of whom are actually close friends, having worked at that network for five years, but almost all of whom got swept up in the ratings bubble that was feverish Russian conspiracy theories".

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dedicated significant airtime to a theory that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation. This ability that, her critics enjoy labeled her a conspiracy theorist and viewers grew to was away in droves when Licensed legit Overall Invoice Barr's letter first and valuable summarizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's file indicated that a Trump campaign-Russia conspiracy didn't exist.

Ball specifically cited the network having New Yorker writer Jonathan Chait and Louise Mensch on and stated, "Seriously, this is not journalism".

Elsewhere in the six-minute monologue, Ball accused MSNBC of cynically following the Russian Federation story in pursuit of ratings, making journalistic compromises along the way. "CNN and many other outlets are also clearly not blameless in this hype machine".

Ball said she singled out her former employer because "they were certainly the worst mainstream offenders" and the entire ordeal has damaged the chances of a Democrat winning the 2020 election. "Mueller the hero. The white knight who would come riding in at the last moment to convince those independent, middle-American women that Trump was the crook and the scoundrel that we said all along", Ball said. "Needless to say, the white knight rides no more".

MSNBC canceled Ball's "The Cycle" back in 2015. Ball was part of an ensemble that also included Abby Huntsman and Ari Melber on MSNBC's version of roundtable programs such as "The View".
