MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Friday provided an impassioned plea for news networks to stop relaying President Donald Trump’s day-to-day press instructions about the coronavirus pandemic on live TV, warning they are “going to cost lives.”
Maddow, in a prolonged monologue, kept in mind how Trump has actually consistently utilized the conferences to spread out false information and promote advancements that he understands Americans would like to hear however actually are not true.
“There may be other people in the federal government saying things that are true, but these daily briefings from the White House are a litany of things from the president that would be awesome if they were true, if they were happening, but they’re not. And so the sooner we come to terms with that, I think the better for all of us,” she stated.
“If it were up to me, and it’s not, I would stop putting those briefings on live TV. Not out of spite, but because it’s misinformation,” Maddow described.
“If the president does end up saying anything true, you can run it as tape. But if he keeps lying like he has been every day on stuff this important, we should, all of us should stop broadcasting it. Honestly, it’s going to cost lives,” Maddow concluded.
