Rachel Maddow Take A Leave Of Absence Till The Primaries Are Over

You should not even pretend to be a journalist any more.

I mean it.

You are so Pro-Hillary and Anti-Progressive watching you gush over Hillary makes me want to vomit. I stopped watching your show. I can't take it any more.

Just take a leave of absence, and go to work for the Clinton Campaign officially, and when the primaries are over, you can go back to doing real news, not propping up a horrible train wreck of a candidate.

Just ask yourself Rachel. If the entire establishment, and the entire media wasn't supporting Hillary, how many delegates would she have? If journalists actually did journalism, and looked into the favors Clinton Foundation donors got. Forgot to forget about Mark Rich. I mean what would happen if someone did real journalism at MSNBC? It would blow people's minds now wouldn't it? Ain't gonna happen.....

Leave Rachel, before I puke.

The Bridge Scandal = All hers.

Flint Water Crisis = She led the entire media.

Many of us here are fed up with false, misleading headlines that, like spam, are designed to get people to open yet another tiresome lecture from a Sanders supporter.

Grow up and engage in meaningful discourse if you actually mean to advance your cause or your candidate.

Her groveling before Clinton is pathetic. The Beatles said that money can't buy you love, but it seems, in Rachel's case, it can buy your soul.

As far as investigative journalists, the Ruling Class hates them and with Obama's help, they are pretty much extinct.

73. I've seen more investigation from Hayes than Maddow.

Do you watch her? I quit watching Maddow years ago but still watched and liked Hayes and O'Donnell until this campaign season when they all were in the tank for Clinton and I finally watching. All I ever saw when I did watch Maddow was some gossipy junk news, a lot of cheerleading, and some bar gig. Tell me, what am I missing? What has she investigated recently?

There is much better investigative journalism on HBO's Vice. Their journalists actually go to some of the most dangerous parts of the world and put their lives on the line to tell the stories that you won't see on the Rachel Maddow show.

Rachel Maddow straddles the line between journalist and pundit, Vice is true investigative journalism.

MSNBC's audience will collapse after the November elections, though if Hillary or Trump win the Presidency there will likely be an ongoing series of gaffes, scandals and impeachment threats from the other side to keep things interesting.

Cenk Uygur of TYT has predicted that MSNBC will be shut down in 2017 because of dismal ratings and a lack of profitability.

48. I read an article about those soaring ratings

They were comparing the recent ratings to a period of awful MSNBC ratings, which makes for a very favorable comparison. They said Fox is up by X% and MSNBC is up by 2X%, or whatever it was. What they were very careful not to do was to compare MSNBC's ratings with Fox's because Fox is still crushing them.

86. She reported on his campaign. It was only when the Sanders campaign claimed that they had not

 

competed in several states where Maddow had covered their campaign efforts extensively that she began taking a harder look at the Sanders campaign as a whole. They basically implied Maddow was lying on her multiple nights of programming where she reported on their investments in Texas, South Carolina, and all the other places that they tried to pretend they never competed because they lost so badly.

If Sanders and his campaign staff had kept to the truth, she'd probably still be happily reporting good news for his campaign. Instead, they made her look foolish for reporting facts about the campaign that the campaign tried to be deceptive about later, and they cost themselves a media ally.

127. Common sense, logic, and watching her show where she expressed the same sentiments.

 

She specifically highlighted the reporting she did ahead of the contests that the Sanders campaign claimed they never competed in, and questioned why the Sanders campaign would make statements claiming they'd never competed within states where Maddow had reported on their activity.

The fact that you're maligning Maddow when you clearly don't watch her is just embarrassing for you.

When toad, korny and maddow got together after a visit from Bernie, she leaned in like she was six years old and they were huddling like little kids mocking Bernie. I couldn't believe it. That was the last time I actually sat through a complete segment of her show which I only watched because Bernie was featured.

They believe that the GOP would delve into every detail of BS's life looking for something untoward, and would come up empty-handed.

They believe that Bernie's entire life has been so pure, so honest, so without blemish or even a hint of scandal, the Republicans would just throw up their hands in frustration and say, "This guy's the real Messiah, and we have nothing to say against him."

Ya know, if only Jesus Christ had led as pure a life as Bernie Sanders, Pontius Pilate would never have been able to crucify him. The votes just wouldn't have been there.

138. Then how's this whet your whistle?

From the Ethical Journalism Network, these are the tenets of journalism:

Truth and Accuracy

Journalists cannot always guarantee ‘truth’, but getting the facts right is the cardinal principle of journalism. We should always strive for accuracy, give all the relevant facts we have and ensure that they have been checked. When we cannot corroborate information we should say so.

Independence

Journalists must be independent voices; we should not act, formally or informally, on behalf of special interests whether political, corporate or cultural. We should declare to our editors – or the audience – any of our political affiliations, financial arrangements or other personal information that might constitute a conflict of interest.

Fairness and Impartiality

Most stories have at least two sides. While there is no obligation to present every side in every piece, stories should be balanced and add context. Objectivity is not always possible, and may not always be desirable (in the face for example of brutality or inhumanity), but impartial reporting builds trust and confidence.

Humanity

Journalists should do no harm. What we publish or broadcast may be hurtful, but we should be aware of the impact of our words and images on the lives of others.

Accountability

A sure sign of professionalism and responsible journalism is the ability to hold ourselves accountable. When we commit errors we must correct them and our expressions of regret must be sincere not cynical. We listen to the concerns of our audience. We may not change what readers write or say but we will always provide remedies when we are unfair.

EJN members do not believe that we need to add new rules to regulate journalists and their work in addition to the responsibilities outlined above, but we do support the creation of a legal and social framework, that encourages journalists to respect and follow the established values of their craft.

In doing so, journalists and traditional media, will put themselves in a position to be provide leadership about what constitutes ethical freedom of expression. What is good for journalism is also good for others who use the Internet or online media for public communications.


So by this metric, Rachel Maddow can only really be considered a pundit.

For truth and accuracy, this is predicated on the third tenet, both of which she can't really be said to support by dint of the second. So long as she's being paid by MSNBC, which is firmly in Hillary's pocket, she is not independent. Since she is not independent, she can neither be truthful, accurate, fair, or impartial. The only things she's got going for her are humanity and a vague inkling of accountability. Let's call a spade a spade here, she's no journalist. She's just a paid talking head in the vein of Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly, just with less invective.

147. I didn't say I loved Hillary..

When I said "I love them both" I meant Bernie and Rachel Maddow.

If you could make this a petition on Change.org I'd be honored to sign.

132. Maddow has been corrupted by the Almighty Dollar, like so many others.

She's just another talking head hack and corporate shill. I cancelled by MSNBC cable subscription some months ago and I haven't missed it one iota.

143. Lmao! What has MSNBC done to Rachel's brain?

 

her interview with the Democratic candidates proves that she is not completely immune to the conservative influence.

150. she has shown an obvious bias.

As a long time Rachel fan, I'm disappointed. Bias has no place in journalism.

151. Change the channel

Better yet, cut the cable. Give yourself a respite and smell some flowers.

152. She is a commentator/pundit, not a journalist.

And she does a better job than anyone else in exposing the Republicans for fraud.
Sorry but she doesn't need your approval to continue to do what she does.
