Greenwald is dead on. The addition of Maddow to MSNBC's lineup makes her the 2nd liberal with her own show (3rd counting Bill Moyers). On all of cable TV. The bizarre reaction to her hiring, especially in light of current and recently-defunct shows headed by Brit Hume, Tucker Carlson, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Nancy Grace, Glenn Beck, and John Gibson, not to mention avowed Dittohead Brian Williams, puts all of the media's varied neuroses and weaknesses on full display, from their shell-shocked terror of right wing scolding to the reliance on narrative over evidence.
As Coach Leach would say: Rachel, swing your sword.
