On the Overtime segment of HBO’s “Real Time,” MSNBC intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance unloaded on Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow over an article on the website that was false and led to Nance and his family receiving death threats.
After Marlow was asked by host Bill Maher to describe what he thinks constitutes “fake news,” Nance jumped into the conversation to call out Marlow — and demand an apology.
“I sort of have a bone to pick with you,” Nance asserted. “You’re at Breitbart, right? And you don’t do fake news, right? That’s what you’re asserting here? Yeah, you know there was this article about a 35-year counterterrorism expert who claimed that they wanted Trump Tower attacked that was written in Breitbart? I got thirty-one death threats from that – and that came from your website. Are you going to apologize to me? I’m sorry to say, I spent decades hunting terrorists. Yes, so that’s fake as hell.”
“You don’t have to share your bonafides with me,” Marlow replied. “I respect you. I respect your service.”
“But your followers threatened my family, my children, my wife,” Nance shot back.
Marlow the attempted to diminish Nance’s complaint, saying, “Are you really suggesting that Breitbart doesn’t get death threats? That our lives aren’t put in danger?”
“No, No, No,” Nance said. “You can apologize to me now. Alright? I’m not threatening you.”
“Show me the story,” Marlow offered. “And if the story is as you describe it, I’ll be happy to offer an apology.”
“I will come to your office to see that retraction,” Nance replied.

Retired general tells Fox News: ‘We’ve already lost our reputation — we have abandoned an ally’
A recently retired general lamented to Fox News this week that President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria has already damaged U.S. national interests by abandoning the Kurds.
"The deed has been done," retired Army Major General Malcolm Frost explained to Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin. "So what's happening is we've already lost our reputation. We have abandoned an ally, and thirdly, those ISIS prisoners are going to escape."
Read Griffin's tweets below.
U.S. military is in the process of withdrawing nearly all of the 1000 or so US troops that helped stabilize northern Syria. A US military spokesman says it has pulled out of Manbij, Syria - to make way for Russian-backed Syrian forces who have taken over the abandoned U.S. base.
RNC chairwoman raked over the coals for accusing others of nepotism — despite being Mitt Romney’s niece
Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee and the niece of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) thinks that the Democrats have a problem with nepotism.
Reacting to the recently aired ABC News interview with Hunter Biden, in which the former vice president's son admitted that his family name had opened doors for him that might have otherwise been closed, McDaniel accused the Bidens of engaging in "obvious nepotism."
"Hunter Biden got $50K a month from a Ukrainian energy company, despite having ZERO experience in energy," she wrote. "His justification? That he was also on the board of Amtrak – more obvious nepotism. If that’s not the swamp, I don’t know what is!"
‘Impeachment barricade is crumbling’: Trump officials are ignoring his threats and cooperating with House Dems
A source speaking to POLITICO was in the room for the closed-door testimony of President Trump's former top Russia adviser, Fiona Hill, who is reportedly the first White House official to cooperate with the Democrats' impeachment inquiry. According to the source, Hill has "sketched for lawmakers a trail of alleged corruption that extends from Kiev to the West Wing" -- all while implicating some of Trump's top advisers as witnesses.
Additional testimony from senior State Department official George Kent -- despite administration officials' attempts to block him -- is the latest evidence that "the White House’s stonewalling against congressional requests for documents and testimony is crumbling," according to POLITICO's Kyle Cheney and Andrew Disiderio.
