For over two years, CNN and MSNBC have pushed the Trump collusion narrative. Some shows have even gone above and beyond their duty and promoted conspiracy theories. Now, the New York Times is separating themselves from the fold.

According to reports, The New York Times is blocking its reporters from appearing on a substantial amount of cable TV shows. The move is due to what is the New York Times claims is an attempt to prevent the appearance of left-leaning bias.

For two years, the majority of news shows have had pundit guests talk about the Trump/Russia collusion narrative. Networks like CNN and MSNBC have claimed that Trump colluded with Moscow to undermine the 2016 election.

However, when Robert Mueller released his report in March, that put many news organizations in hot water. The story read that there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The report also said that there isn’t any evidence that any American colluded with the Russian government.

The Times avoids the Rachel Maddow show

According to a report by Fox News, the Times financial editor, David Enrich received a ban from appearing on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show.

This strange news came as a shock to many because, during the Trump-Russia investigation, the Maddow show was one of the highest (if not the highest) ranking shows on cable TV.

It all came to a screeching halt when the Mueller report came out, and it appeared that Maddow refused to accept the results of Mueller's findings.

According to Politico, while the Russian probe was a real thing, Maddow approached the story with a conspiratorial mindset. For example, Politico wrote that Maddow claimed that Rex Tillerson was appointed by Putin and that Moscow is the "actual head" of the Trump State Dept. Politico called it the Rachel Maddow deep delusion.

Other shows that New York Times reporters are banned from appearing on

The Fox News article doesn't only target Maddow's program. According to the report. The Times has blocked reporters from appearing on the MSNBC show hosted by Lawrence O’Donnell as well. Also named is the CNN program hosted by Don Lemon, Fox said.

Lawrence O’Donnell's show, like Maddow's, has pushed many conspiracy theories as well.

In many cases, O’Donnell pushed some of the same claims.

One theory that stands out above the rest is his idea that Trump's health is deteriorating. O'Donnell has attacked Trump, claiming that both his physical and mental health is in jeopardy.

Despite many doctors claiming otherwise, O'Donnell pushed this theory to its breaking point. CNN ran an article after a renown doctor debunked O'Donnell's claims. The report verified that doctors say that Trump's health is good, other than his gaining weight.
