I decided to choose this topic to write because I was truly disappointed to hear about Greta Van Susteren’s firing from MSNBC. To me personally, she is one of the few journalists who has inspired me to be the writer and journalist I am today. She is an honest, caring individual who has always been respectful and professional. She just reports the facts and lets you decide your opinions. I remember during the war with Hamas in Israel, she was one of the few who reported the truth regarding the terrorism that Israel fights daily. Truth be told, I am not surprised that MSNBC would fire such an outstanding journalist.
Since the elections, MSNBC has been nothing but a bunch of vile “journalists” who continue to lie and spread false allegations towards President Trump and continue to hold on to them. For example, his tax returns as well as a Trump/Putin connection and the audacity to think that Russia has interfered with the United States election. Greta, the outstanding journalist she is, decided not to partake in such a vile means of reporting. Instead, she continued on what she knows best, honest factual reporting. Sadly they decided to cut her from the network. The Greta I know was nothing less than professional with her response on Twitter with the words “I am out, on MSNBC.”
Now the President on the other hand, who is not afraid to call it how he sees it said on Saturday, ‘Word is that @Greta Van Susteren was let go by her out of control bosses at @NBC & @Comcast because she refused to go along w/ “Trump hate!”‘ Personally, I agree with our President. MSNBC has “journalist” with the likes of Chuck Todd, Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, Morning Joe and Mika. They have been vile, cruel and have no problem trying to manipulate their viewers to believe lies for their agenda.
Via Daily Mail:
Donald Trump has claimed in a Saturday morning Twitter screed that MSNBC fired anchor Greta Van Susteren after just six months because she was too friendly to him.
‘Word is that @Greta Van Susteren was let go by her out of control bosses at @NBC & @Comcast because she refused to go along w/ “Trump hate!”‘ he wrote.
It’s unclear where the president’s information about Van Susteren’s departure – which was announced by the host in a terse Thursday tweet – has come from.
On Thursday Van Susteren, 63, simply tweeted: ‘I am out at MSNBC.’
The conservative host was axed six months after joining the network, and just hours before she was due to go on air.
No reason was given by either her or MSNBC, but she had been struggling to pull past her CNN and Fox News competitors on the liberal channel since she arrived six months ago.
But she was up 59 per cent in total viewers and 74 per cent in the key demographic of ‘adults 25-54’ year-over-year.
The president did not elaborate on what he meant by ‘Trump hate,’ or the circumstances of her supposed refusal to go along with it.
However, Van Susteren was notably silent in the feud between Trump and her MSNBC colleagues Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough that occurred the same day.
The pair’s on-again-off-again relationship with the president hit a new low on Thursday when he tweeted: ‘I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore).
‘Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!’
Brzezinski dismissed the claims – it was a neck-tuck, she said, and fully healed, not a bleeding facelift – and fired back at Trump, mocking his ‘tiny hands’.
Scarborough, Brzezinski’s partner and one of the three conservative voices on the channel along with Van Susteren and Nicolle Wallace, retweeted a series of defensive remarks from others.
I hope Greta will enjoy her time off until she finds new work, and she is a carrying person who has mentioned several times she is more worried about her staff than herself which we will continue to pray for them. She is also working on a charity that helps children in Liberia which is a great cause to help, click here for the link. Keep fighting the good fight Greta.
