  1. Yessssssss!

  2. Fake people, watching fake news, generating fake ratings. Or not. Nice work, Rachel.

  3. The only fake news is on fox.

  4. Yes! America is watching MSNBC to get the true facts of what is going on in the corruption of our current Administration and GOP Congress. The people demand the truth, and are finding it here. Love the correspondents and journalists that they have. Protect the free press.

  5. Investigative reporting keeps us informed. Lay out the facts & we draw our own conclusions. This is the way real news works. Don’t try to spoon feed me garbage, Fox. MSNBC has my vote for good reporting. Rachel rocks!
