Maddow breaks down on-air while describing 'tender age' migrant shelters

Rachel Maddow Struggles To Read Report Of Babies Sent To 'Tender Age' Shelters

She was unable to read the description of the shelters, first asking a producer to display a graphic, and then deciding to abruptly end her segment.

As she began to read the story live on-air, a story she had not previously read, she was unable to complete it, instead, breaking down and pausing because she was unable to speak. She tried to keep going. "What I was trying to do - when I suddenly couldn't say/do anything -was read this lede", she wrote, spending the next several tweets reproducing the top of the AP's story.

Her viewers responded, many saying they respect her even more after tonight's reporting.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. Instead of continuing, she just made a decision to close out the show and let host Lawrence O'Donnell begin "The Last Word". The "tender age" facilities reportedly house children with special needs and those younger than 13. Customs and Border Protection has at times defined it as 5 and under.

"I apologize for losing it there for a moment", she added.

Telstra to axe 8000 jobs over four years
Increasing competition in mobile and fixed broadband and rising costs from the NBN were held to blame. Telstra says it is targeting a further $1 billion in cost cutting by the 2022 financial year.

In the midst of her program on Tuesday, the AP reported that Trump administration officials have been sending young children to at least three age-specific shelters as part of the Justice Department's new "zero tolerance" immigration policy that's resulted in thousands of kids being separated from their parents.

Rachel Maddow broke down live on the air on June 19 while attempting to deliver the heartbreaking news that migrant babies are being separated from their parents and taken away to "tender age" shelters. "Not the way I intended that to go, not by a mile". The Department of Homeland Security has said 2,342 children have been separated from their parents since last month. Indeed some recent detainees are infants, taken from their mothers.

Many on Twitter contrasted Maddow's reaction to that of Lewandowski's.

As CNN's Brian Stelter said, "these two moments convey the country's divide".
