Rachel Maddow Profile…

The Fresno Bee’s Rick Bentley profiles MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow…

MSNBC, as was the case with Air America, gives Maddow the chance to add a rare liberal voice to the dominant conservative chatter that fills the airwaves.

“Air America Radio was founded because there was nothing on talk radio that was not either sports, religious, or right-wing politics. There was no other form of politics in talk radio forever,” Maddow says. “And getting that platform gave me a chance to get really good at talk radio. And I think getting good at talk radio was a great place to prep for being a good guest on TV. And prepping to be a good guest on TV ultimately prepped me to be a good sub-host.

“And prepping me to be a good sub-host got me to where I am now.”

Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, describes Maddow as one of the hardest-working, smartest and most delightful people with whom he has worked.

    Joe, I posted this in yesterday’s Free For All…quite frankly I wish there were none of these profile articles. I find them boring & not very informative.

    Doesn’t matter to me if it’s RM, BOR, Beck, KO, AC, Greta, etc…

    Just say no to puff (pieces). 🙂

  4. This one’s especially lazy. Don’t tell me: she doesn’t even own a TV, right? It’s not a profile…it’s a press release.
