Nolte: MSNBC admits it spread Iranian propaganda during rocket attacks
8 Jan 2020 — #FakeNews
During Iran’s Tuesday night missile strike on a U.S. base in Iraq, far-left MSNBC openly admitted it was spreading propaganda for the Iranian government.
MSNBC helped Iran push the false claim that 30 U.S. soldiers were killed tonight in their attack. Zero were killed.— Jason Howerton (@jason_howerton) January 8, 2020
This isn't just fake news, this is so damn disrespectful to the family members of those deployed.

Responsible journalism would normally involve some confirmation first, especially in an event of this magnitude, so that Iranian propaganda isn't spewed across American airwaves and into the ears of someone worried about a loved one serving overseas.
Here's the transcript:
We’re just getting reports now that a second wave of rocket attacks has been launched from Iran. The IRGC [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] was saying that Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of this country, was in the control center coordinating these attacks. This bit I’m not sure about, but Iran state media is claiming that 30 U.S soldiers have been killed in this attack. This is not confirmed. This is just coming from Iranian media. But we have just stepped over the precipice, Chris.
MSNBC pushed Iranian propaganda tonight by reporting that Iran killed 30 Americans tonight even though the Pentagon said that that was a lie and that no Americans were killed.— Andrew Pollack (@AndrewPollackFL) January 8, 2020
Fake News is the enemy of the people!
Iran claims it killed 30 Americans, But The Pentagon said zero Americans killed.— Ken Jones⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@sxdoc) January 8, 2020
Fake News MSNBC ran Iran’s narrative.
In Reality, Iran lost 56 people in Soleimani funeral stampede & 82 more in Tehran Ukraine 737 crash https://t.co/feGZlVkohA
Here's another clip from the Breitbart piece where Andrea Mitchell battles with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over whether or not Pompeo would support a hypothetical decision by the president to bomb Iran's "cultural sites".
Setting aside the fact that Trump never actually said this, the question itself points to MSNBC's priority of trying to sew division within the Trump administration, even when the country is potentially on the brink of war.
Unfortunately, it's not just MSNBC dropping all pretense of objectivity.
