MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson Covers Insane QAnon Conspiracy Theories: ‘Pizzagate on Bath Salts’ (Mediaite)
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson used a portion of her Wednesday show to hold an informative segment about QAnon, the wacky online conspiracy theory that had a very conspicuous presence at President Trump‘s rally last night.
As Jackson explained to her viewers, QAnon is 4Chan-based idea that one of the website’s anonymous users has high-level government security clearance, and is dropping hints about Trump’s war against the so-called “deep state.” Jackson went through several of the nuttiest allegations from QAnon while noting how Roseanne Barr endorsed the conspiracy theory along with other pro-Trump, far-right figures.
As Jackson spoke Ben Collins about how QAnon spread across the Internet, the NBC reporter described it as a mish-mash of unchecked online conspiracy theories that have been rolled into a single lump of insane preposterousness. Collins was also given plenty of time to argue that he was right when he characterized QAnon as “Pizzagate on bath salts.”
