    Brilliant stuff (and not partisan, so calm down).

    I find it so amusing how people on the Left can't stop whining about Beck and Hannity on how Biased they are but the somehow think Maddow is fine to listen..

    I find it quite Hypocritical..

    --

    I'll repeat this, Maddow is another Beck. Why? They have their own little show they talk about their own Personal Opinion and nobody hardly every comes on their show who doesn't agree with them..

    But then again you won't realize that, because frankly people who listen to Maddow & Co. are as bad as those who continuously watch Beck & Co.

    Every election year it's term limits and anti-incumbency. It just is never that simple.

    You don't know what you're talking about. You must be a conservative.

    The best part of her point is how the media collectively decides on a theme, then mindlessly, obstinately, runs with it even when the facts make it look ridiculous.

    Maddow has people on who disagree with her all the time, so right there you're full of shit.

    You DON'T know what you're talking about.

    Yeah, that was funny. The segment was interesting, I liked her description of it as a wave that they're hoping everyone just hops on. Going along for the ride.
