4. For a long time I've been thinking that some day Rachel is
going to take the place of famous, well respected news broadcasters like Barbara Walters, Walter Cronkite, Ed Morrow, etc. She's the BEST cable news has, and I wonder just how long MSNBC is going to be able to keep her?

Honestly, I can't think of any other newser that I believe when they say something, and I think it's mainly because she backs up everything she says with proof.

Have you ever wondered if the guys on MSNBC like Schultz, Matthews & Olberman are jealous, at least once in a while?
