On December 1st, Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly both predicted that Ferguson protests wouldn’t last and would just die out within the week. On December 3rd, the Eric Garner grand jury decision was handed down, triggering even more protests all around the country.
And Rachel Maddow tonight just couldn’t resist taking a shot at her cable news rivals over the bad prediction. She said they “did not have their finger on the pulse of the protests,” and pointed to lots of planned protests happening this weekend, including the Justice for All march in D.C. and a potentially huge protest in New York.
Maddow added, “I know they keep expecting these protests to peter out, but they are not petering out.”
