Some Viewers Were Mad MSNBC Called Brian Williams To Break Missile News Over Maddow

imageedit_23_9985913258

Last night, we showed you the moment Rachel Maddow‘s MSNBC show came to a halt as breaking news poured in that Donald Trump sent a slew of missiles toward an airbase in Syria. He did that in response to a gas attack in the country (and maybe in response to a suggestion from Hillary Clinton).

As they tend to do, MSNBC hauled Brian Williams in for the special report.

Here’s the thing, though: Maddow was already at the anchor’s desk talking about Syria. Why didn’t she get to helm the initial coverage? Many on social media wondered the same.

The anger ranged from what was seen as sexism at worst and unfairness at best.
