Fire Rachel Maddow: MSNBC Host Claims GOP Congressman 'Received Advance Notice' of Oklahoma City Bombing

Readers will recall the many times I've dismissed Rachel Maddow as a fever-swamp leftist who happens to have a TV show. Well we probably have the best case for that today, with Maddow's extreme claim that Republicans had "advance notice" of the terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in April 1995 (via Memeorandum):

Conservatives are pretty incensed with this. See especially Uncle Jimbo and JammieWearingFool, who writes:
If MSNBC has the slightest bit of credibility this woman would be unemployed by this afternoon.
Yeah. She should be fired. And MSNBC should be shunned for giving her this kind of platform. See, "Rachel Maddow Hosts 'The McVeigh Tapes' ... Rachel Maddow!!"

Maddow? I don't like that guy.

You know back in the day, you had to at least have proof of such a claim, even if it was fake a la Dan Rather. Now, just the accusation is enough. Wonder where Maddow took that cue from? Oh yeah, Obama and Pelosi, something about the Chamber of Commerce.
