7. The Maddow Show no longer podcasts

The full show is behind a pay wall now.

What is with liberal, progressive media? One of the reasons FOX viewership is so large and we've seen the influence of that has been that it's available everywhere, for free. Even on my cell phone plan, FOX was the only news show offered for free.

Basic cable offers FOX but MSNBC is several tiers higher, right up there with Showtime and HBO. Are they kidding?

I live in a very, very red state and watching local news or reading the daily paper is very misleading. Air America was here for 2 years, became hugely popular (ended for other reasons involving a court case that they won) and durinng that time the unthinkable happened - the state almost turned BLUE! Enough of a swing state the DNC set up a permanent office ...

However, without Air America or a voice in the media, the DNC pulled out in 6 months.

Meanwhile, to gain access to hear Al Franken's show there was another paywall.

I am so sick of this. Progressives are sunk until they can find a way to support media. I would subscribe to The Maddow Show but that doesn't seem to be an option. I am not going to pay over $100/mth for 300 useless channels on a 2 year contract just to get the Maddow Show.

So stupid. I can't believe I'm the only one upset by this.
