Ali Velshi just keeps getting better and better. [View all]

This evening, I watched Ali Velshi sitting in for Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC. Ali did a 20 minute opening monologue as does Rachel Maddow on Monday nights. He's informed about American and world politics, and he's become an MSNBC treasure.

At one time in America, John Kennedy was not dead until the TV icon Walter Cronkite of that era stated it to be so. Rachel, and now Ali, are virtually at that level of credibility.

Whatever political ideology you ascribe to, truth is truth. To me, Rachel Maddow has been the most reliable source of news for years. Now, she's being joined by Ali Velshi. TV has become but one of many media outlets. But regardless of which media you're paying attention to, credibility is everything. And Rachel and Ali have it.
