So yeah, Rachel Maddow just basically admitted the Steele Dossier was false as was her coverage, using Dan Rather of all people, and his using fake news to try and sink George W. Bush, to justify her actions.
That is what we in the ‘biz’ call a self-own.
And a MASSIVE one at that.
Take a gander:
Rachel Maddow was asked by Vanity Fair to reflect on her coverage of the Steele Dossier and the Russia Hoax.

What a load of crap from @maddow! The hook that @DanRather brought were the documents; not the story that Bush got a sweet deal. That was known; was accepted largely as fact. Rather’s story was that he has documents to prove it.
She has to spin even when talking about how she spun.
Welcome to the liberal media.
Hey, she admitted to a judge she’s more entertainment than news … why anyone is surprised that she pushed a fake story is beyond us.
Only an elitist hack like Maddow can get away with defending her histrionic coverage of the Dossier by claiming that not only is the underlying story of the Dossier actually true, but the total debunking of said Dossier was really just an attempt to distract from said story.
Interesting right? He got fired, she’s still there.
What does that say about MSNBC?
Don’t answer that.
She admits openly that the entire story is fake and yet to the best of my knowledge never gave a hint that she’s interested in following up on who initiated an attempted overthrow of this nation’s last legitimately elected President. FFS!
I remember her telling the audience after the failed impeachment that she had founded the evidence of President Trump’s collusion with Russia in the Muller’s report. She kept lying as her salary depended on it.
