FACT CHECK: MSNBC Says “It’s OUR Job To Control What People Think!”


Time for another fact check!

No, not the Politifact kind…

I mean a real one.

Honest reporting.

What you expect from WeLoveTrump.

So here’s the deal, I’ll cut right to the chase.

Today, a viral clip from MSDNC (errrrr, MSNBC) went viral claiming that they were responding to Elon Musk buying Twitter and saying Elon can’t tell people what to think….quote: “that’s our job!”

Take a look:

And here’s another:

One more:

Elon himself actually responded to one post with a laughing emoji:

So…is the clip true?

Did they actually say that?

Well, yes — the clip is real.

Here’s the only catch: it’s from 2017 and it’s about Trump, not Elon.

Larry Sanger is 100% right:

And in case those clips get deleted off Twitter because, well, we all know how much they love the truth….don’t worry, I have a backup.

Here’s the original clip saved safely to Rumble:

For her part, Mika or whatever the hell her name is tried to wiggle her way out of the comment by claiming it was misinterpreted.


Here’s what she said:

And here’s the transcript, you judge for yourself…


SCARBOROUGH: Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche [Alcindor] said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.’

BRZEZINSKI: Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.

Plus we can all watch the video and judge on our own I think!

So…the verdict?

Clip is 100% accurate and true.

And MSDNC is a disgrace.

However, it’s not about Elon, it’s about Donald J. Trump.

But at this point, the two men seem to be two of the last saving graces fighting for America, so I could see how anyone could get them confused.
Very understandable.
