Maybe it’s a sign that they are around the bend. Rachel Maddow rooted for the Steele dossier to be true. Then it fell apart..
Actually on the subject of the Steele Dossier, Maddow is so far around the bend, she can’t see it in the rear-view mirror.
When small bits of news arose in favor of the dossier, the franchise MSNBC host pumped air into them. At least some of her many fans surely came away from her broadcasts thinking the dossier was a serious piece of investigative research, not the flimflam, quick-twitch game of telephone outlined in the Horowitz report. She seemed to be rooting for the document.
And when large bits of news arose against the dossier, Maddow found other topics more compelling.
Media bias? What media bias? (Hat tip to The Other McCain.)
