Rachel Maddow: A Biography

Rachel Maddow is one of our favorite people. She tells it the way she sees it.
Coming from California in one of the only tiny Red sections of the state, she quickly outgrew the conservative beliefs of her hometown and has always considered herself an outsider.
This is a good look at some of her family and personal life, as well as the story of how she became the top anchor at MSNBC and the only one that our current president never calls out! Why? Because this woman researches everything. She loves shining the light on the things politicians don’t want us to see or talk about.
She is respectful of all of her guests, no matter the political affiliation. I think this is one of the many things we admire her for. She isn’t putting on a show or being flashy, she’s showing you and explaining the facts. Just the facts. And for that, we watch her every time she is on the air.
Rachel does not just spout opinions, she walks us through the tangled web of politics today and helps us understand the FACTS.

  3. I totally agree. That’s why I don’t really see Rachel Maddow as leaning left. No, I think she leans left in perhaps the same way that Walter Cronkite might have leaned left. In fact, I think of her as today’s answer to Walter Cronkite in may way, especially in reality and trustworthiness–and influence, despite are fragmented media landscape. I recently posted a video related to Maddow’s new book, Blowout, and I’ve gotten so many hateful comments. Most of them I had to remove and I hid the ratings since it was becoming a pile on of dislikes. I doubt many of these comments and dislikes are even real! What sad times we live in. Cronkite never had to deal with this but I’m sure he would have had much to say about it.

  4. a few typos. wrote this down too fast and now I can’t edit. But you get what I mean. Feel free to correct if you like. for instance, meant reliability and not reality. maybe that was spell check.
