Rachel Maddow said that MSNBC could not “knowingly broadcast untrue things,” and that she expected Trump’s speech to be a “litany of lies and false accusations.”
Conservatives accused Maddow of hypocrisy, pointing to her network’s past coverage of Trump, which they said had often been inaccurate or misleading.
Maddow’s decision was praised by some liberals, who said that it was important for news organizations to fact-check statements made by public figures.
The decision to not air Trump’s speech live was a departure from how MSNBC had handled his previous speeches. In April, the network aired most of Trump’s speech following his arraignment in New York.
Trump pleaded not guilty in federal court in Miami on Tuesday to 37 federal felony counts stemming from the investigation into his alleged improper retention of classified records at Mar-a-Lago. He faces a prison sentence that could conceivably put him behind bars for the rest of his life.
