The most informative news segment on TV, IMHO, is the first fifteen minutes of Rachel Maddow‘s nightly program on MSNBC. In a sure sign of her effectiveness, even the far right has noticed and has started calling her names.

Yesterday on FOX News, I saw Megyn Kelly reporting a story about 13 Chrysler workers who were fired for drinking alcohol while at a local park during their lunch hour. Just another typical anti-union story on FOX complete with Megyn’s grimaces punctuating the story. Later in the day on Rachel Maddow‘s show on MSNBC, I discovered why FOX had made such a big deal of the Chrysler story. The state legislators in Michigan that day had rushed into law a measure to make Michigan a right-to-work state. Governor Rick Synder is expected to sign the law today. No prior notice of the proposed law had been given and no testimony solicited from the public.
Andrea Saul, daughter of Dalton, Georgia, is currently Mitt Romney‘s campaign press secretary. I just saw her on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell discussing Mitt’s tax returns. The current party line is that Mitt has released 500+ pages of tax returns, no mention if that was for one year or more than one year. Andrea worked on the John McCain 2008 campaign and then she went to work for Orrin Hatch. When the Romney campaign misspelled America as Amercia, she famously said, ” Typos don’t matter.”

Whenever I want some straight news delivered with passion, I turn to Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. Five nights a week, she delivers news that I can trust on subjects that others are often ignoring. And she has gained the attention of the Right. Some blogs are according her the ultimate right-wing compliment of insult and name-calling. Rachel, in the short time you have had your own show, you have arrived.
