Johnson expresses concern about the lack of MSNBC coverage of the role of the USA in the conflict in Yemen since 2015.
What use is having a "liberal" cable network if it remains silent on the major issues facing the left?
As FAIR noted in January (FAIR.org, 1/8/17), MSNBC's coverage of the US-assisted bombing and siege of Yemen is virtually nonexistent. In the year 2017, MSNBC ran only one segment that focused on the US's role in Yemen; zero in the second half of the year. In 2018 so far, MSNBC hasn't run a single segment on Yemen, much less the US's role in in it.
