Trump's 2005 tax bill revealed in fresh leak

Trump's 2005 tax bill revealed in fresh leak

And there it was, the big qualifier to her major news: The show only had "a portion" of President Trump's tax returns, a fact she neglected to mention in her tweet for obvious reasons.

Rachel Maddow's big reveal of Donald Trump's headline-challenged 2005 tax return attracted 4.13 million viewers Tuesday night - her biggest audience ever.

The documents reported the president had earned $153 million and paid $36.5 million in income taxes in that year.

Amgen's Repatha Results Not Good Enough For The Street
At one year, there was a 16% relative risk reduction for the combination of cardiovascular death, heart attack and stroke. Amgen announced in February that the drug was a success, but details of the research were not released until Friday.

"The bombshell here is that some of his tax returns have been made public for the first time, when he's been trying to hard to keep them secret", Maddow explained.

Two days ago, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow stoked anticipation for her nightly broadcast with the announcement that her staff had acquired and would be reporting on "Trump tax returns". A look at all of his tax returns would be mighty interesting, but a little bit here and a little bit there merely stokes curiosity without satisfying it. An equal number appear to be attacking her as well.

The report stirred all sorts of feelings among people, including those who felt it had proved Trump had not only paid his taxes, but at a higher rate than the average American.

Former Vols coach Cuonzo Martin offered Mizzou job according to reports
Cuonzo Martin is on the move again, and the former Missouri State men's basketball coach may be headed back to the Show-Me State. His Golden Bears were bounced from the first round of the NIT Tuesday night after being upset at home by Cal State Bakersfield.

It's also worth noting that Maddow scored with younger viewers.

I'm not hung up on the use of breaking news to tease the information.

Maddows's approach was in keeping with how she conducts her highly rated show every night. "It doesn't mean that it's damning information. If other people leapt to that conclusion without me indicating that it was, that hype is external to what we did", Maddow said of the incident to the Associated Press. After noting how the MSNBC host pushed the story on Twitter prior to her show, Colbert joked, "Rachel took us on an emotional roller coaster".
