MSNBC’s Plot to Control Narrative Exposed in Producer’s Leaked Email
Network didn’t want to “take the risk' of losing their narrative
One of MSNBC’s senior producers for the Rachel Maddow show accidentally emailed a GOP congressman, exposing the far-left network's plans to control the narrative.
The email, accidentally sent to Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), revealed the network was worried the congressman might want to defend himself if they approached his office for comment on a damaging story about him.
An email was sent to Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s office by a senior “Maddow” producer.
The staffer was trying to get an NBC News colleague to ask for comment on a story about efforts to prevent the freshman lawmaker from running for re-election.
Cawthorn’s office said the producer explained that if Maddow asked for comment directly, “he might ask to come on and explain.”
The email also emphasized that the show didn’t want to “take the risk” of allowing a Republican coming on to defend himself.
This is what the producer wrote, as per Fox News:
“We are kinda interested in this AP story (below) that just dropped about Rep. Madison Cawthorn," he wrote.
"A group of voters in NC is challenging his candidacy based on his ties to the insurrection.”
“1. Do you or any other NBC Hill folks plan to ask him for comment on this story? 2. If not, is that something you guys could do?" the email continued.
“We don’t have a relationship with his office, and between you and me, are a little worried that if we did inquire, he might ask to come on and explain. I know that is HIGHLY doubtful, but don’t want to take that risk.”
The producer was referring to a story about a group of North Carolina voters who are trying to get state officials to bar Cawthorn from running for re-election because of his participation in a pro-Trump rally ahead of Jan. 6, 2021.
The network contends that he’s an "insurrectionist" because he attended the Peaceful rally Democrats call the “Jan. 6 insurrection.”
They point to the 14th Amendment, which says that no one can hold office “who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress … to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.”
If Cawthorn were to appear on the show, he would likely give her viewers a different side of the story, and their narrative would be threatened.
So if MSNBC has all the evidence that the sitting U.S. congressman is a criminal, why would they be so afraid to invite him on their show?
Cawthorn told Fox News that MSNBC didn’t want him to burst their “woke dystopian bubble.”
“Fake news MSNBC doesn’t want to ‘take the risk’ that I’ll come on their show and trigger the left with my America First message and burst their woke dystopian bubble,” he said.
“The left doesn’t want debate from conservatives; they want to silence.
"And now we have it in writing. Sad!”
It looks like the network’s tactics are a strategy to keep their “woke” narrative alive, and allowing a pro-Trump representative to school their audience with the truth could be a stake in the heart.
