V. Hanson: ‘Rhodes Scholar’ Rachel Maddow Was Wrong on Dossier — Rush, Hannity, Nunes Were Right By Michael W. Chapman for CNS News

Commenting on how many over-educated people in the liberal media are not wise and lack common sense, Victor Davis Hanson — himself no intellectual slouch — strongly criticized MSNBC host and Rhodes Scholar Rachel Maddow for promoting the anti-Trump Steele dossier as largely true for nearly two years.

Hanson also derided Maddow’s colleagues who endorsed the salacious dossier but noted that conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who were excoriated by the liberal media as unsophisticated, explained clearly and pragmatically, day after day, why the dossier was false.

On FNC’s The Story With Martha MacCallum, Dec. 27, guest host Ed Henry explained how Maddow had promoted the dossier and said to Hanson, “when it comes to Maddow, she pushed this DNC-funded anti-Trump dossier and it turned out to be bunked.”

Hanson, professor emeritus of Classics at California State University-Fresno and a Hoover Institution senior fellow, said, “Well, you know, the playwright Euripides once posed the question, what is wisdom? And it came down on the side of pragmatism and ordinary people, superior intellect to the intellectual classes, and this whole psycho-drama of impeachment is pitted — this elite against common people.”

“So in the case of the Rhodes Scholar Rachel Maddow, and she was reassuring America that the Steele dossier was correct, you could go on and listen to Rush Limbaugh here and Sean Hannity — both without sophisticated degrees — who were practical, pragmatic, and pointed out chapter and verse how it could not be true,” said Hanson.

“Same thing with Devin Nunes,” he said.  “Devin Nunes’s memo was trashed, he was caricatured as a farmer, turned out that [Inspector General Michael] Horowitz basically substantiated every point [by Nunes] and the Harvard law graduate Adam Schiff was completely erroneous and disingenuous.”
