    for her talents--- and she only gets better.

    Trying to set aside my bias, I think MSNBC's election /convention coverage far surpassed that of any other network.  The MSNBC panels are loaded with people who really know politics, from the inside in many cases, and have a tremendous enthusiasm for politics.

    Rachel practically jumps out of her skin with excitement on election nights, and as more people find her show, they are going to find it hard to change the channel.

    Imagine the disappointment of Fox viewers, many of whom now realize they've been lied to all of these years.

    •  The panel(s) (0+ / 0-)

      There are a couple things I would like to see handled differently:

      • Please stop having one of the members out in a crowd somewhere. While I relish a panel without Tweety sitting on it, I hate when they cut to him (or whomever) in a crowd because as soon as the tally light comes on the noise level goes way up.
      • While ordinarily I don't give the bare behind of a furry rodent about hearing anything from a conservative, I actually don't mind Steve Schmidt, as he's articulate and capable of rational observation from his conservative experience. Having said that, however, it seems to me he's under used. I know it must be difficult to allocate time among six or seven panelists, but he represents half of the topic. A little balance, please.
      • I've long said I have no respect for Al Sharpton and will never forgive him for the Tawana Brawley affair. However, having been forced to listen to him at least a bit because of the nature of the panel coverage, I must admit to having to grudgingly concede that he's pretty sharp about politics and does a good job of speaking for his race. I'll still never forgive him, but I agree to listen when he's on a panel.

      Rachel Rocks! Don't change a thing with her, except, perhaps give her a raise.
