  1. I have watched news and political commentators on television since about 1968, and have found no other person in those positions who comes better prepared than Rachel Maddow. She is not only knowledgeable about the stories she covers, she is also honest, publicly admitting when she has made a rare error. How many other newscasters or commentators can that be truthfully said about?

  2. Only ONE PROBLEM with the bio information on Rachel Maddow. Her sexual orientation is lesbian, something she disclosed years ago. She has had a close relationship with professional photographer, Susan Mikula, since 1999.

  3. I really appreciate Rachel’s self deprecating humor. While many other prime time news commentators tout their brilliance, Ms. Maddow comes across as genuinely humble. She will open her newscast with an analysis of the lead on topic and then pass it to the initial interviewee. She prefaces her remarks by asking whether her conclusions are correct and that she does not claim to be an expert on that particular topic. Rachel went to Harvard. She was a Rhodes Scholar and earned a doctorate from Oxford. She does her research and is obviously well read. There is one thing I like most about Rachel. And that is her humanity. Someone made a scathing and homophobic remark about her. This person later apologized. Rachel readily accepted the apology and told her audience all was forgotten and forgiven. She is a real “Class Act.”

    • I don’t care what schools she went to, and what awards she received. She’s an absolutely Joke and Fraud!! She is great on brainwashing people with her Lies!
      that’s what’s wrong with our society, we think because somebody has degrees and went to particular Ivy League schools that they’re smarter than the average person. Sorry to say but I would rather hire someone with common sense then a bunch of degrees behind their name. That have been brainwashed by this Bias professors for years and years.
      What a joke! She is a self-serving person that cares about herself and the $$$ she makes and will say what she needs to per MSNBC true or not. She just has a degree on how to spin news for people to believe, that’s the bottom line.

  4. I find Rachel Maddow a complete BIAS PERSON!!
    She is a complete FRAUD! She was spewing a lie for years to the American People about TRUMP and Russia!! How ironic, she’s taking a little hiatus from her show as soon as all this came out that it was a LIE! She is an absolute disgrace. If she was truly cared about our country and not herself she would’ve brought out Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s past and we wouldn’t have this IDOIT in the White House!
    Not to mention all the foreign policy MISTAKES this IDOIT has done to our Country!

    I am so tired of these lying media figures. It’s a disgrace that they push false narratives! So don’t tell me anything about this woman. Anyone that believed her lies and have been brainwashed by her ! Deserves everything that’s coming their way! Gas price, interest rates, inflations, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Russia, Pipeline and the list goes on.

  5. Rachel didn’t go to Harvard.
    Not that that matters.
    How anyone can trust or believe anything Rachel Maddow says is beyond me.
    The only reason she has a job was too bash President Trump which all the other pin heads eat up like candy.
    I wonder why she hates President Trump so much… Or, is it all men?
    I actually took time out of my life once to watch part of her show. It was the episode where she had or alleged to have; a copy of President Trump’s tax return. She strung that out just about the entire episode. Every time she went to a commercial she’d say something like “and Trump’s tax return when we return from this commercial”… Commercial ends and she’d flap her gums for a few minutes and then say the same thing “next up Trump’s official tax return”, on and on.
    And when she finally did get around to look at it, it was perfectly fine.
    For someone to be so angry and hateful and bitter towards, like she was towards Trump, is not healthy.
    To push the Russian hoax, from day 1, and be proven wrong about EVERY thing.
    She has zero credibility.
    She’s the worst.
    Except for maybe Joy Behar.
    They’d make a great couple!
    What Maddow does can’t even be called “news” because she’s so biased.
    She knowingly spreads inaccurate information.
    She needs to just go away.
    She’s a disgrace.
