A Maddow Masterstroke

Every now and then Rachel Maddow proves she’s one of the smartest people on television. [Insert joke about skinniest kid at fat camp.]

And but she is. One of the smartest. Yes, Maddow does place herself firmly against the Limbaugh’s and O’Reilly’s on other networks and outlets. Sure, it’s liberally biased. However, newsflash America, Walter Cronkite, Edward R. Murrow, Ted Koppel: these men all have identifiable political bias. There’s shades of emphasis here, but look. What Rush Limbaugh does is not what Keith Olbermann does/did. Ditto for Maddow. MSNBC cannot do what Fox does because it doesn’t utilize – yet – an overwhelming media machine to construct the news. MSNBC is still just reporting.  You know, on things that happened.

And here, Maddow does what no one else is doing.
