In another strange occurrence related to Russia, MSNBC’s Thursday night broadcast glitched during Hardball with Chris Matthews and repeated the word “Russia” over and over.
The broadcast experienced issues just as Washington Post columnist David Ignatius was saying the word “Russia,” which was repeated over and over during the freeze, Mediaite.com reported
“When you hear General Mattis today, Mike Pompeo, the CIA Director, [all] almost swearing that they’re gonna be hardliners on Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia…”
Raw Story reports that on Thursday, C-SPAN’s broadcast of proceedings in the U.S. House of Representatives got bumped off the air during an anti-Trump speech by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). C-SPAN’s signal was replaced by approximately 10 minutes of programming from Russia Today, the English language cable network owned by the Russian government.
C-SPAN blamed “an internal routing error” for the glitch in an afternoon statement.
The LA Times reported, “The lights mysteriously went out during the confirmation hearing for Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) while he was being vetted by the Senate Intelligence Committee.”
The topic of conversation during the temporary blackout was the role Russian hackers may have played in the outcome of the 2016 U.S. election.
