A producer from “The Rachel Maddow Show” expressed concern over North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn wanting to appear on the show if he was asked for a comment on a story, according to an email.
The story involved a group of North Carolina residents who are challenging Cawthorn’s reelection campaign based on claims he was involved in an “insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021.

The producer was interested in a comment from his office, but “didn’t want to take that risk” of Cawthorn wanting to be on the show.
“Fake news MSNBC doesn’t want to ‘take the risk’ that I’ll come on their show and trigger the left with my America First message and burst their woke dystopian bubble,” Cawthorn said, according to Fox News.

“The left doesn’t want debate from conservatives, they want silence. And now we have it in writing. Sad!”
The leaked email reveals the bias in mainstream media, especially Maddow’s program, where conservatives simply are not invited. The situation was intended to reveal Cawthorn’s issues with Americans, but has instead revealed concerns about MSNBC.
