Better There Than Air America

News Item: MSNBC Gives Rachel Maddow 9 p.m. show

Maddow's excellent on TV- I especially enjoy her odd-couple debates with Pat Buchanan- and I don't doubt the show will be a success, although I am a bit wary about MSNBC going down-the-line left, just as a mirror to Fox. MSNBC, at least, actually hires females who aren't Barbie-lookalike blonds.

Is Maddow the first openly gay host of a primetime cable news show? I suppose that depends on whether you consider Anderson Cooper "openly gay." I'm just glad it was her and not Rosie O'Donnell, who was also rumored at one point to be getting an MSNBC show.

I didn't know Joe Scarborough was a liberal. Huh.
