2. I still watch.
I find I never agree with ANYONE 100%, and Rachel is no exception. I do appreciate her anti-corporate, pro-labor economic stances, but I also find her decision to support the "shoot first, ask questions later" crowd bizarre and uncharacteristic of her previous stances on military action in the Middle East. Do MSNBC anchors have to toe a corporate (read: GE as largest defense contractor) line in order to receive clearance to broadcast? I would have thought they had greater independence than Faux....

Of course, on Faux, those poor anchors have to adjust their principled stances daily to comport with their inerrant opposition to all things Obama Administration. So it could be worse; MSNBC could be both inconsistent AND unprincipled.
