In case you missed it, this past week MSNBC mouthpiece Rachel Maddow tried to make a big deal over the idea that she had gotten a copy of Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return. The whole thing was a bust as the tax return showed Trump payed more in taxes as a percentage and in dollars than either Hillary Clinton or the Obamas. Not only that, but she had hyped the tax return to the point where people are calling this worse than Geraldo Rivera’s opening of Al Capone’s vault.
Maddow’s show took a hit in the ratings the following night:
The episode was down -36 percent in total viewers from Tuesday, and down -9 percent in total viewers from the previous Wednesday. The audience decline was even sharper when it came to adults 25-54, a category which includes marginal TV news consumers who are more likely to watch when there’s a noteworthy event transpiring. In the A25-54 demo, Wednesday’s episode was down -54 percent from Tuesday, and down -16 percent from the prior Wednesday.
