2. Well, for one thing, she's extremely intelligent and well-informed.
And she tells the truth, has no specific agenda like the "talking points" that the conservatives spew forth. She's also able to present complex issues with such clarity that anyone can "get it." She also has a sense of humor which most right-wingers do not... :bounce:

6. Thank you Cenk and Rachel for pointing out to your viewers
the conflict of interest here. Spokespersons having the ethics to protect us from this deceptive practice/opinion, does make me wonder how our news might sound if more Rachels, and Cenks were on the airwaves.

7. K&R for Rachel.
But, didn't the MSM, or at least some of them, have information re: the war and other info, but did not report it? Wasn't it discovered that they were feeding the sheeple with prepared info from bushit and co.?

10. Listening to NPR yesterday with their media experts and they roundly praised
Rachel as being the most intelligent, direct and reasonable talk show host on cable.

And they were not endorsing her ideological bent either.

It is clear that she has already made her mark.

12. Raising the bar on the industry of sycophant talking heads
Not that it would have taken much to raise the bar, but let's not underestimate the importance of what she and KO have done. And it is no coincidence that nether of them is from the "'news' media industrial complex".

I don't know that there is a single one of those weasels with any integrity. Definitely not Rather, Russert, Gregory, Will, Roberts --- none of them. They are all narcissists interested only in self promotion by sucking up to power. The only person I can think of remotely connected to the in-crowd with any integrity is Helen Thomas, and she has had plenty of time in the penalty box over the years as a direct consequence of pursuing her job with integrity.

Fortunately there is a second circle of journalists with true integrity orbiting just outside the in-crowd, and they are ascendant in influence. David Corn, Frank Rich, Paul Krugman, Naomi Klein, and so on. Our job is to continue to raise their voice to overpower that worthless bunch of snakes who cozy up to power.

24. K & R I saw that one too.
She's an excellent follow-up to Keith's show.

But are either of them going to cover the suspicious death of Michael Connell?? Heh???

28. Rachel gives me hope
imagine how different our country could be with Rachel setting the example and ALL other journalists following suit??? We could actually have integrity in the media. Maybe it would spill over to other areas, and we would have people with integrity in all aspects of our society: business, politics, the courts...

(Yeah, I know, I know...)

Sad it is considered to be such a great, extraordinary thing just to have the truth told on tv...
