Rachel Maddow is HBIC at MSDNC

Apparently, the real power at MSDNC is Rachel Maddow; and not even network executives dare to cross her.  Ace reports:

Behind her back, colleagues call her “the queen,” a not so subtle suggestion that Maddow gets what Maddow wants. And what she wants is a network filled with young wonks such as Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, Alex Wagner, and Harris-Perry, whose highbrow intellectualism can, she hopes, push the Democratic party, and the country, to the left.

I never understood the appeal of Ms. Maddow. Her act seems to consist of delivering vacuous talking points in a smug, condescending tone. And when caught deceptively editing video, she shrugs it off.  Also, she apparently considers Melissa Harris-Perry and her tampon earrings to be a “highbrow intellectual.”

I bet neither one of them can make a decent sammitch.

And if her goal is to move the country to the left, how is that accomplished by making her network into a leftist echo chamber that no one who isn’t already a hardcore leftist would watch? And are tampon earrings, deceptively edited video and attacking the children of conservatives really what the intellectual left is all about? If MSDNC is the Network of the Intellectual Left, one must conclude that it is.



  1. You might check out her book, “Drift,” which summarizes changes in American military history. Apart from the Reagan hating stuff, it’s quite good.

  2. I bet she didn’t even write her own book; knowing the history of some of the more (shall we say) “demanding” female journalists out there – I’m looking at you, Baba Wawa – she probably got an underling to do it for her.

  3. I’ve tried to check out her show, I can’t stay with it for long. Not that I can stomach anything on MSNBC. No viewer likes the smug, snarkey attitude no matter what your politics is.

  4. Tampons are a tool of the patriarchy. Real women let it bleed all natural like.

  5. […] media outlets, Maddow refuses to do the intellectually honest thing and admit she lied. Since Maddow is the HBIC at MSDNC, no one there will call her out on […]
