The great thing about working for NBC is that the day after you humiliate yourself and your bosses with a nonexistent scoop about Trump’s taxes, you get to go on the Tonight Show to make excuses for yourself.
Here’s a sneak preview of Maddow talking to Jimmy Fallon, which is all part of the process of journalism:
Tonight: Rachel Maddow compares her Trump tax return leak to "a drop of water" in the desert pic.twitter.com/RGDZt8wYhj

Correction: Not just a drop of water, but a whole stream of it. Directed right into your ear, as she tells you it’s raining.
I hope you people appreciate what Rachel Maddow is doing for you. It takes a lot of guts to keep stepping on all those rakes.
