      But for me, I do and will continue to watch MSNBC. When it comes to TV news, I don't feel my choices are all that great, although I am looking forward to checking out Al Jazeera's take on things, in lieu of the former Current TV. This is an intriguing possibility to me. Vote still out.

      I read a ton on the internet, but I also need the connection of the TV broadcast format. To each their own.

      and there was no support from Rachel, whatsoever.  And since if it weren't for Keith, Rachel would have never gotten the gig, I found that disgraceful.

      •  At the end of Rachel's show tonight.... (5+ / 0-)

        the 5th anniversary of her being on MSNBC with her own show, she thanked a lot of people.

        Except one.

        The one who gave her the break.

        The one who went to bat for her and lobbied hard to get her the job.

        The one whose Name Must Not Be Spoken, apparently, at MSNBC.

        The one to whom you refer in your subject line.

        Pure chickensh*t on her part.

          I remember watching the first time she sat in for Keith at Keith's request.

          She wasn't awful, but she did have her awkward moments, which is to be expected the first time.  Then the more times she subbed for him, the more comfortable she got.

          I also remember Keith's last night and his announcement that he was leaving.  That was the same Friday night that Rachel appeared on Bill Maher's show.  Her total lack of compassion or caring and being a person about it, when asked about Keith, was disgusting.
