The New York Times has deemed Rachel Maddow too opinionated and is refusing to let their reporters go on her MSNBC show.

NY Times's finance editor David Enrich had been invited to appear on Maddow's prime-time program earlier this month to discuss a report regarding President Trump, Jared Kushnerand allegedly suspect transactions involving Deutsche Bank before Trump took office.

After Enrich agreed to appear he was instructed to back out by his superiors.

"The Times was wary of how viewers might perceive a down-the-middle journalist like Enrich talking politics with a mega-ideological host like Maddow," reads the report by Joe Pompeo, who went on say that a Maddow producer was "miffed about the cancellation." “For over a decade, The Rachel Maddow Show has welcomed the best journalists from across the country and celebrated the hard work they do, day-in and day-out. This includes countless New York Times reporters and editors. That commitment to journalism is part of the DNA of the show." Other programs deemed too opinionated and partisan for the Times's reporters and editors to appear on included "CNN Tonight" with Don Lemon and MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell."

According to the Times's handbook of values and practices for the news and editorial departments, staff members should avoid shows that "emphasize punditry and reckless opinion-mongering."

A highly placed source at one of the cable networks said he found the Times’s guidelines to be “inconsistent, incoherent, and poorly conceived.” He also pointed out, “At the moment that Donald Trump became president, and print media was coincidentally in crisis mode from a business perspective, a significant contributor to the success of publications like the New York Times and the Washington Post was the exposure that their great work got on networks like MSNBC and CNN. They are the beneficiaries of some very positive exposure for their journalists.”

Has Trump tweeted this "fake news" from the "failing NY Times" yet?

No,, and he won't - it might be too much reality for his adoring flock.

They MUST have their villains!

Maddow is a propagandist, who has lied to her viewers, and as a result, her ratings are in the tank. Even some on the left are realizing they were following fake news and they have moved on.

Maddow is a joke at this point.

She only exists to feed the TDS loons on the far left now.

MadCow should be on with Samantha Bee. They are the same level.
