Well, this is certainly high praise — or heavy sarcasm. The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart (also an MSNBC contributor, as they all are) thinks everyone should be watching “Maddow” during the COVID-19 crisis, as she’s bringing the same journalism excellence to the coronavirus pandemic that she did to the Russian collusion story and President Trump’s impeachment proceedings.
If you're not watching @maddow during our Covid-19 nightmare you're not getting the full picture of what's happening. That journalism excellence you relied on during Russia & impeachment is in full effect now. Thank you for shining a light in the places where we need to focus.

"That journalism excellence you relied on during Russia & impeachment is in full effect now."
Gotcha. We'll know what it's worth, then.

But…she was completely wrong about the Russia thing guy.
— Jim Mason (@LiveFreeJim) April 18, 2020
Wait, "journalism excellence" that pushed Russian collusion when…..there was no Russian collusion? Interesting.

Lol. She got everything wrong on Russia, Russia. Russia. She’s a joke.

Everything she said about Russia was wrong but yeah she is an excellent propagandist.

Dude, Rachel Maddow has been dead wrong on EVERYTHING Russia relayed. Everything!

"That journalism excellence you relied on during Russia"
Uh, she was a clearinghouse for Russia conspiracy theories we now know to be dead wrong! @Heminator

Russia was a bust. Impeachment was a bust. Well, to be fair, Russia was more than a bust, it was an embarassment of biblical proportions for the MSM.
So, what journalism excellence are we talking about exactly?
"Orange man bad" isn't even remotely enough.

Name one thing she has been right about.

She was spot on about that Navy hospital ship ?
— Jill (@his_natrgrl) April 18, 2020
The one she said it was “nonsense” to believe would be docked in New York in a week? Even the official White House Twitter account tweeted out video of that prediction to dunk on her.
One of Maddow's best. And recent too:

Yeah that's why her ratings went out the window after Mueller dropped his bombshell on you guys. Yep not watching

Remember that time when she got ahold of Trump’s tax return. Best episode ever!
— DiveBarRepublican (@Politigolf1) April 18, 2020
Hey remember that time she had the “scoop” on Trump’s tax returns? Yeah that worked out well.
— Jacob 57th Regiment (@CrewHopes) April 18, 2020
Yeah, they maybe shouldn’t have hyped up that episode so badly that showed Donald Trump had paid (maybe even overpaid) about $38 million in federal tax in 2005.

He seriously mentioned her Russia reporting as proof of her excellent journalism.
‘BRO, take the L!’ Rachel Maddow SNAPS at Trump, doubles down on her abysmal reporting and OMG she just made it worse https://t.co/7KfGLf1ux3
