Katy Tur of MSNBC was speaking to fellow network host Chris Matthews today about the Obamacare repeal when they shifted gears and began making political predictions for the future.
At one point, Tur asks Matthews:
“Is there any chance that Trump will face a primary challenger in 2018 from the Republican side?”
Instead of correcting her, Matthews just goes on talking.
Tur doesn’t seem to know that the next presidential election is in 2020, not 2018.
It’s worth noting that this woman just received the “Walter Cronkite Award” for journalism.
The TV Newswer reported:
Jorge Ramos, Jake Tapper, and Katy Tur Will Each Receive 2017 Walter Cronkite Award
The 2017 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism winners were announced this morning. The honorees include CNN’s Jake Tapper, Univision and Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, and NBC News’s Katy Tur, each of whom will receive the Individual Achievement by a National Journalist honor.
Given every two years since since the legendary CBS Newsman first presented them in 2001, the prizes were announced today by the Norman Lear Center at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, which administers the award.
Announcing the winners, Lear Center Director Marty Kaplan said, “Today, at this seriously dangerous moment for our democracy, these Cronkite Awards honor journalists, stations and networks stepping up to their civic responsibility to tell Americans the truth.”
And the media wonders why their credibility is gone.
