John McCain And Fox News's "Dumb Question"

Yes, you recognize the father.

Last night's MSNBC News (talk) sows were nothing shy of stellar reporting and host opining.  Starting with Ari Melber's The Beat and finishing with a really great set of segments on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, the network offered real journalism and professional commentary. Even if you are an on the fence voter (AKA independent) you would have to possess a deep hatred of liberalism (AKA progressivism) to find the shows null and "fake news."

Since the networks segments can run a bit long, I have posted a segment from Lawrence O'Donnell's The Last Word.  The segment relates to political criticism and Trump's kerfuffle with John McCain while offering a glimpse into the difference between professional news reporting (questions) and propaganda laden smut questioning from the GOP Communication and Propaganda network (Fox News).  O'Donnell offers a copious amount of commentary prior to running the question of McCain via MSNBC's reporter and the Fox News reporter. The Fox News reporter seemed to be the son of well known early morning host Steve Doocy.

Also, notice how McCain took the Fox News reporter to the journalistic woodshed and administered a lashing. The lashing hit home as you will notice the reporter's jaw tighten and flinch as McCain takes him to the credible journalism shed. 




McCain has just spoken about how he is above Trump's name-calling and non-productive talk and stated his willingness to work with Trump. Why would the Fox News reporter totally ignore McCain's just delivered comment with a question obviously developed and given to the reporter by Fox News producers?  

A couple of non-surprises: A dumb question from Fox News is like a Rabbit with oversized ears: of course.  Also, would anyone expect any level of a quesiotsn from the son of Steve Doocy which wouldn't be a dumb question?
