Rachel Maddow Leads for Most Influential Progressive
April 6, 2011 |


Nightly MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is demonstrating her huge popularity at the half-way mark of voting in AlterNet's poll of the "Most Influential Progressive Media Figures," jumping out ahead of Michael Moore. Thousands of votes have been cast by AlterNet readers and those from other progressive web sites. Anyone can vote in this poll.

1. I'm torn between her,Colbert, and Hartmann. Though a lot of the other choices are good as well.
Quick, someone sway me.

3. Rachel educates - clear and concise
making it easy to understand the stakes. Colbert is amazing - but he's more insider humor to me.

5. Good point on Colbert.
It's really between Rachel and Thom. Its really hard to choice because I learn so much from both of them, its just Thom was the first mainstream progressive I heard, I didn't get MSNBC till a few months ago.

7. I don't have cable, but catch them on video
I'm really partial to Rachel. She is fearless, and often out front talking about things before the others pick it up. I can see the dilemma with Thom though. Nice choice to have!

8. I was a Rachel follower on her XM radio days - first she was
on at night, then in the morning,,,,or was it vice-versa....anyways....I LOVE HER.

9. I used to catch the tail end of her radio show on my way to the gym back in 05.
I felt she sounded a bit strained on the radio. TV is a far better medium for her, IMO. She just seems more welcoming on TV. On the radio, I felt a bit estranged from her...

6. She certainly is as far as I'm concerned.
If I had teachers of her quality I might have actually learned something in school..

10. She is amazing. Clear, concise and cogent in a way Olbermann never was.

And just as passionate, without all his histrionics.
