    I like Maddow, generally more on foreign policy than domestic but yeah I just try to avoid cable news in general. That said, the daily howler’s takedowns of the MSNBC crowd just kind of proves that those who live by the snark…Report

    Yeah, Maddow is the best that I have watched. I can’t really add to what you have said. I just don’t get to watch her show often enough.Report

    I like her too. Even though everything she thinks is completely wrong, you still get the sense there’s a real person there. It helps that she works on the same network as Keith Olbermann, where the contrast is unmistakable.Report

    Maddow is great. she is genuinely smart and far, far above the standard of honesty in cable news.Report

  5. I think ‘fair’ is a very good word to describe Maddow. She’s unapologetically liberal but she will blast her fellow Libs just as hard as the folks on the Right.Report

    I like Maddow but I’m still a Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert fan when it comes to choosing. I know that’s “fake news” and all that, but I still get the sense that those two are the most honest pundits out there.Report

    Whatever pretense of respectability Maddow gets for her usual behavior is usually squandered by the fact that she continues to treat Pat Buchannan as a credible voice on…sorry any subject.Report

    I’m waiting, but not holding my breath, for the day Keith Olberman has a guest that opposes his point of view. I’m serious, I don’t think Olberman has ever had anyone on his show that was not a suck-up. Oh, I like Keith well enough.Report

    What I find amazing is how she lets Ron Paul finish thoughts. She simply doesn’t interrupt him. Pretty unheard of on cable news these days. I don’t have a TV, but my parents watch her every night and I enjoy catching her when I’m at their place.Report

  10. NL says:

    And it helps that she has a great sense of humor. Not like “i’m trying to make a joke,” but more like, “i am genuinely amused.”Report
