In an attempt to draw more eyeballs, ratings-starved MSNBC host Rachel Maddow went after the competition at Fox News over an off-the-cuff remark made about the Ferguson protests.
Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly, who shares the same time slot as Maddow and thumps her on a nightly basis, agreed last Monday the protests would last another week at best.
The newly anointed MSNBC “news anchor” appeared to relish in the idea that the protests continue today, but that’s due in large part to a grand jury decision in New York City not to indict an officer for his role in the death of Eric Garner.
A decision that came down two days after the discussion by O’Reilly and Kelly.
“I know they keep expecting these protests to peter out, but they are not petering out,” Maddow gloated.
