1. Rachel sounds neither too shocked nor upset by the news...
I suspect KO let her know in advance he was negotiating a buyout.

10. Do you really thinks? It seem to me like she doesn't really support him. And is just trying to
distance her self from him. Seems to me she talks to him like he is her crazy uncle.

5. Sounds like she knew
I hope he left on his own and was not fired for no reason. I would go back to watching CNN if they picked him up.

because he refused to talk about it incessantly as he was told by his producers. Too much class in this day of Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly. TV is dumbed down and fascist. Who is on the Sunday Morning talk shows? Mostly republicans or moderate/ right wing democrats. Progressives are not represented on TV.

11. It seems to me she knew in advance too but doesn't want to be brought into the conflict or its after
math.

I saw where someone said something about the 'crazy uncle.' I don't see that at all.

I think Maddow probably told them MSNBC they were not going to change her contract to accomodate their decision to force Keith out, but she also probably told her network big wigs unless they did something horrific/insulting/inflammatory she would not speak out about it.

Whatever happened, I hope if Keith's contract keeps him off-(television) air like Conan for a few months...I hope it doesn't keep him off internet broadcasting like Young Turks or some other creative venue where he needs a low capital base to give his opinion or his take on the news.

12. I would respect my friend's privacy and business, and I think that's
what she's doing. She, too, is a class act.
