36. I used to go to Maddow's MSNBC site, and look at different segments.

As MSNBC, over time, found they had a marketable program, they made it harder to access, and it completely overloads my old o.s. So I can't even go on her site or Maddow blog. It will keep trying to load, crash, recover.

I don't have cable t.v. to get her that way. I have an Apple TV, but it doesn't offer real access to her show. It just gives random, eclectic samples of it, some episode segments are years old, and there's no way to search the offerings in temporal order.

That's why I miss Galraedia's stuff so much. I could always get some modern Maddow, and scroll back through V&M pages to get them in reverse temporal order. Buzzflash used to offer some of her stuff, too, but their truthout merge knocked that out, mostly.

I miss Benen's writing on Maddow blog, too. Excellent analysis, well written.

She did. Chill out. The point is the Consent Decree that has not expired yet. nt Xipe Totec Oct 2016 #1
Yes I got that, but arcane details about Crazy Eddie way back in the day added nothing to the Dream Girl Oct 2016 #8

many people actually like the history and context and the brilliant way she connects the dots niyad Oct 2016 #17
I admit I used to love it, but it's gotten old...the connections don't seem brilliant Dream Girl Oct 2016 #18
I wonder if she does it to fill time since not too many want to come on her show? brush Oct 2016 #21
I nearly mentioned the same thing Awsi Dooger Oct 2016 #22
Right. Exactly what most news coverage is missing. Historical context. Mc Mike Oct 2016 #23
Context is great when it's relevant...but some times her "connect the dots" are more like random Dream Girl Oct 2016 #26
No offense meant to you, D. G. We disagree, but I didn't address your o.p. negatively. Mc Mike Oct 2016 #30

I am consistently annoyed with Rachel talking down to her audience, like we don't know anything. Zen Democrat Oct 2016 #25
Yeah I used to listen to her show on Air America. She was really good. But she does talk down to her Dream Girl Oct 2016 #27
Put me in the Rachel admirers. To me, she's one of the smartest talking heads on TV. napi21 Oct 2016 #29

I don't like that show's style either. Buckeye_Democrat Oct 2016 #35
I definitely agree... tallahasseedem Oct 2016 #38
I agree too much getting around to, rather than getting to the point I also find her higher pitched Monk06 Oct 2016 #40
Yep. That's a common and correct complaint about Rachel's opening here at DU. stopbush Oct 2016 #39
Rachel is smart but she irritates the hell out of me because she takes too long to get to the Raine Oct 2016 #41
I really enjoyed that Crazy Eddie/Trump piece, highly informative. The coincidence was amazing. OnDoutside Oct 2016 #43
It once again makes me wonder what Trump is up to. Is it ecstatic Oct 2016 #49
Based on what we know of him, he wouldn't have remembered. OnDoutside Oct 2016 #64
She's incredibly smart but terrible at hosting a show. Inkfreak Oct 2016 #45
