21. If I have to choose, Maddow, hands down.
I appreciate all that Olbermann has done to bring unpleasantness to light, and I certainly appreciate his role in bringing Ms. Maddow to light.

But Maddow is much more explicitly progressive in her mindset; she is far more likely to bring up such things as labor issues (has Olbermann EVER really done pro-labor segments, beyond the usual "Wal*Mart sucks" stuff?), she's just plain better informed about national security issues, and I think her show makes a much stronger effort to air opposing views.

It's not a knock against Keith to say this; he's a better entertainer, Rachel's a better reporter.
