MSNBC Rolls Out Ben Rhodes For 'Fact Check Friday'


[See NewsBusters for more.] When doing a "Friday Fact Check" segment, there are countless options for guests that could provide intelligent thoughts on the complex matters of the day. Given those controversies include what the Obama Administration official was up to during its final days in office, former deputy national security advisor and noted spinmeister Ben Rhodes would appear to be low on at that list, but that didn't stop from Andrea Mitchell from doing it anyway.

Mitchell was just the latest in MSNBC host to portray former Obama officials as objective sources of information on the unmasking of Michael Flynn. Mitchell led off, "And now for our 'Friday Fact Check.' The president is calling it Obamagate, accusing President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden of conspiring against Michael Flynn. But our own investigation this week as well as new reporting today in the Washington Post and the New York Times prove that's not true."
