    MSNBC will generally not air remarks or speeches by former President Donald Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, as they happen, network anchor Rachel Maddow said Monday night.

    Trump won the Iowa caucuses, the first contest of the GOP presidential primary, on Monday with more than 50% of the vote. He beat his next closest competitor, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, by a roughly 30-point margin.

    As Trump delivered his victory speech in Iowa, Maddow told viewers of the left-of-center network that it would not air Trump's remarks live over concerns of broadcasting "untrue things."

    "At this point in the evening, the projected winner of the Iowa caucuses has just started giving his victory speech. We will keep an eye on that as it happens. We will let you know if there's any news made in that speech, if there's anything noteworthy, something substantive and important," Maddow said. "Of course, there is a reason we and other news organizations have generally stopped giving an unfiltered, live platform to remarks by former President Trump. And it is not out of spite. It is not a decision that we relish. It is a decision that we regularly revisit."

    "Honestly, it is not an easy decision, but there is a cost to us as a news organization knowingly broadcasting untrue things," Maddow continued. "That is a fundamental truth of our business and who we are. And so his remarks tonight will not air here live. We'll monitor them and let you know of any news that he makes."

    Networks and news organizations have routinely refused to air live remarks by Trump in recent years. Outlets such as CNN and NPR have joined MSNBC over fears of spreading misinformation.


    Trump has led Republican primary polls in the months leading up to the Iowa contest and is favored to become the eventual GOP nominee to challenge President Joe Biden for the White House in November. MSNBC's decision to continue its filtered coverage against Trump raises questions about media fairness and objectivity in political coverage.

    Networks were accused of interfering in the Iowa caucus Monday night over the decision to call the race early, as well. Multiple outlets - including Fox News, the Associated Press, CNN, and others - called the race for Trump with about 1% of results in. Voting had not started in many areas of the state when notifications were sent out declaring a winner.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

Considering the current overwhelming obstacles inflicting stress upon America's working class: rampant inflation; energy insecurity; supply chain turmoil; banking failures; foreign policy disasters; government corruption; (DEI) Diversity Equity Inclusion narrative, with WOKE extremes practiced; Climate Change ideology; intractable crime wave in Leftist cities; wide open border by executive design; a permanently discredited Legacy Media; failed or failing education industry, just to name a few of the many: Who should Americans blame?
  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
  Bloated, incompetent bureaucracy weaponized and poorly managed
  The electorate, US, for putting these fools in elected office that utterly fail

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.
