When Roger Stone made the argument on right wing social media yesterday that Steve Bannon belongs in prison, he bizarrely cited a Palmer Report article as his source. This was surreal, given that Stone has never exactly been a fan of mine; he once called me a “piece of human excrement.” It left me wondering how the media would end up dealing with this development, after all.
The answer finally came just before midnight last night, when Brian Williams did a segment near the end of his MSNBC show The 11th Hour. Williams highlighted the fact that Stone was lashing out at Bannon on the same day that Alex Jones was lashing out at Donald Trump, and the result ended up looking like this:
The headline “The rats are eating each other” is a quote of a Palmer Report tweet from earlier in the day. So thank you to Brian Williams and MSNBC for featuring Palmer Report. More importantly, thank you to Brian Williams for accurately covering the fact that major players in the Trump world are now sharply turning against each other out of desperation, in the latest sign yet that indictments are coming and they’re not just going to “get away with it all.”
