The backlash against people disappointed in Rachel Maddow's "We have Trump's taxes!" story has begun, but it's misguided: No one's "furious" or questioning her journalistic chops. We're just perplexed that she billed this as the culmination of all her excellent reporting, that seemed like it would reveal the conflicts of interest/financial ties to finally explain his hardon for Russia. In the end, many felt Trump leaked the two unrevealing pages himself, picking a year pre-Russian entanglement and one in which he actually paid taxes (albeit a bullshit amount offset by a bullshittier write-off) in a (successful) attempt to get people to stop talking about Trumpcare. (I'm not sure one way or the other.) Still, I do agree that by getting everyone to watch, the world got a recap of her last three to four weeks of reporting on Trump's business conflicts, which was a bait-and-switch that was ultimately useful and can be forgiven -- even though MSNBC used a countdown clock!!!!!!!
