OF COURSE: Maddow Fans Accuse MSNBC Of Sexism Because Her Show Was Interrupted Over Syria

You know how sometimes you’ll be watching FOX News and Shep Smith takes over the entire prime time line-up because of a big breaking news story?

MSNBC did that on Thursday night. They interrupted the Rachel Maddow show with the breaking Syria story reported by Brian Williams. Maddow fans saw this as a form of sexism.

Rachel Maddow Fans Accuse MSNBC of Sexism for Bumping Her for Brian Williams

Rachel Maddow fans on social media were outraged when the MSNBC host was bumped Thursday night in favor of MSNBC breaking news anchor Brian Williams.

Williams is typically brought on for any breaking news event, and he covered the late-night U.S. cruise missile strikes against a Syrian government airfield.
