What Do You Think Of Rachel Maddow?

Tue Nov 04, 2008 8:31 am

By far my favorite radio (and now TV, whoohoo!) personality... particularly since I became so disgusted with Right Wingers circa the 2005 fiasco.




http://www.rachelmaddow.com/



So, question's pretty self explanatory:
Love her? Hate her? Or just getting to know her?


What say you?

Rachel is a great addition to the MSNBC network, an upgrade over the quite-capable Dan Abrams. She's funny, in a dry humor, gets her point across, and can keep her wits about her when being reamed in an interview (I forget who it was, but Keith Olbermann named the guy during Worst Persons the night after for lying about the interview in some way, shape, or form). I greatly enjoy Keith (and have been since he was on SportsCenter umpteen years ago), but Rachel is outstanding at what she does. Whether I agree or disagree with Rachel on an issue, I generally laugh.

Rachel rocks! She was my favorite to listen to on Air America. She's a smart cookie too. She was the first openly gay person to earn a Rhodes Scholarship from Oxford University where she got her doctorate in philosophy.

And she has been a ratings champ in the 25-54 age group for MSNBC. According to the Nielsen ratings Olbermann and Maddow has been giving the Fox shows fits (actually beating them 7 out of the last 13 days) in that all important age group. Now the election is over it should be interesting to see what happens rating wise.

Here in PDX, we have Randi Rhodes from 3-6PM, then Rachel from 6-8(?) on KPOJ. I love them both! I really like Rachel updating us on news from Iraq and life in war time.

If she is on Air America and with Olberman, I guess she is left of center.

I always enjoyed her segments on Countdown, she made a nice transition into her own show. I really enjoy her show, as well as Countdown, Hardball and Morning Joe.

Speaking of morning Joe I'm not sure it's made the rounds yet but about an hour ago I was watching and Joe slipped when quoting someone and used the F-bomb, he didn't realize and kept going while everyone else was in shock. Later he apologized and blamed it on the ambien he takes.

Well Liberal Talk Radio has never been a rating hit and just proves where the majority of the US lean....just look at the Air America web site and the map of the coverage area. Air America is now on its second go around after shutting down a few years back because of lack of listeners and now with the in-coming administration and their 'Fairness Doctrine' they will tell YOU what YOU will listen too and take away YOUR FREEDOM of choice.. What is real fairness....?? If you don't like the view point turn it off or find a view point you do like. The only time I would agree with a fairness doctrine would be if the station receives public funding.... look out PBS.

Interesting. Of course one would never hear the same comment about a male anchor. Or that Bill O'Reilly simply needs more hair. But if a woman is supposed to be watched the most important thing isn't her brain, reporting skills, or education its based on two hooters and a nice haircut?

I wouldn't say it means it's where the majority of the US leans. I think it's a cultural difference - I think right-wingers (especially hard right) are used to being told what to think and believe. I mean come on, what do you think all that time at church is? I think culturally these people are more receptive to news with a slant or with the talking heads because it's "preaching" them everything they already know (or think they know).

Those on the left really do tend to be more free-spirited and don't necessarily see an appeal in some mouthpiece spewing out the party line. That's why Air America failed. I have to admit that sometimes these right-wingers are a guilty pleasure as it's good to hear the other side's view.

Now back to Maddow - I find her show entertaining but I don't see the need to tune into a show every night that doesn't tell me anything I don't know already. Maddow, Olbermann, O'Reilly, etc. are nothing but entertainment. I want to tune into hard news (BBC) rather than just listen to a bunch of talking heads where I can predict their line before even turning on the TV.

...total viewership, no.

But then again, her two-month-old show has already bested "The O'Reilly Factor" (for those who might not be familiar, is FoxNews' highest rated evening show) in the coveted 25-54 age demographic for several nights out of the last two weeks. That's quite the accomplishment, no matter what your bias may be.

Quoting EMBQA (Reply 15):

Not exactly sure how you arrive at that conclusion, considering that the overwhelming majority of American media forms (even by the admission of the radio hosts in topic here) is Left-leaning...

In fact, one may argue that the only reason talk radio ~is~ so successful for the Right, is because it's basically the only venue that broadcasts such... so it's essentially a pooled resource for an otherwise scarce commodity.

Now why would I ever judge a male anchor about anything sexual? Ratchel is a woman, is she not? that is my side of the street. When I look at a woman, what do I think? She is attractive, or not, first and formost. then I decide if I like her for her intelligence. I do think she is a very intelligent woman. Even if I found her attractive, I do not think I would stand a chance,do you? Im not talking about my age either. In my world everything is sexual when it come to women. I do not know anyone on my side who does not think that way. Sorry. I still think she would be more attractive with long hair. I like long hair. I know, I know.

Would you know what a good looking woman looks like?

Quite... see explanation further down.

Here's a couple of eye candies for you...

couple... but yeah, I'd always be dropping things in front of Newsom, that's a fact  angel

You were no longer invited to the country club!

*sigh*, pretty much. Particularly since my dad died, we no longer have a token-whitey to help us get in  Sad

Quoting Superfly (Reply 22):
Can we call you the Arianna Huffington of Airliners.net?

Well, I'm still a Republican... just disgusted with the lot of 'em, and "for the first time in my adult life", I voted against every single one of 'em on the ballot during a POTUS election year.

Quoting Superfly (Reply 22):
I can't believe you'd start a thread about her with a photo.

What on earth are you talking about? O'Reilly is the second most watched show.

...well, had you ~actually~ read what was written, you'd KNOW what I was talking about  Yeah sure
But since it seems to have escaped you, here's a hint: it's not total ratings that I'm referring to.

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 27):
Ok your taste in the toilet. Ingraham is ok and Kelly is off the hook beautiful.

Not really, there's just not much attractive about fake blondes.
As stated, *barf*

You must not know ConcordeBoy.

...innnnndeed





Quoting Superfly (Reply 32):
Well since ConcordeBoy is on the other team, I'll cut him some slack when it comes to judging which women are hot and not hot.

uh, no... we're actually the most objective ones when it comes to noticing true feminine beauty, as we can "judge" with the complete lack of ulterior "motives".

For example, a few select ConcordeBoy-approved beauties of different races:


Represen'in for the White chicks:
Monica Bellucci




Asia all up in dis muthaf^cka:
Kelly Hu

With love from the Latinas:

And of course, a fine-ass Sista:








....and lastly, this one's for SuperFly and Avek00-- more than enough to go around:

...total viewership, no.

But then again, her two-month-old show has already bested "The O'Reilly Factor" (for those who might not be familiar, is FoxNews' highest rated evening show)

AAh Yea...for their 'live' show total numbers Bill has a 3.0 million, she has a 1.7 million....Now, head to head (both on during the same hour) the re-broadcast Bill has a 1.5, she has a 0.8. Even breaking it down to the age group demos Bill beats her with a 0.7 to her 0.5 and the re-broadcast numbers of 0.5 to 0.3

These numbers are right from the Neilsen website....look them up yourself

Quoting ConcordeBoy (Reply 44):

The numbers I gave you were from the 25 - 54 age group.........

I just went all the way back to 10-27 and only found two nights she beat him..and two nights she tied him...the two nights she beat him were by a very slight number and on most all the other days Bill beat her by nearly twice the viewers... Also looking over that period her numbers are dropping... Bills are holding steady.

It has been a long campaign, but the tally is finally in. Last week Keith Olbermann’s Countdown beat the O’Reilly Factor every day in the key 25-54 audience demographic. Here is the five day average for the primetime cable news programs:
Program Viewers
Countdown 1180
Rachel Maddow 1063
O’Reilly Factor 1020
Hannity & Colmes 1011
Larry King 631
Campbell Brown 533

One need only google O'Reilly Complains About Nielsen to pull up 30,000+ references to both her and Olbermann beating him several days in late Oct in that demographic.

Just pulled up the first such reference (despite its inherent bias), though there's plenty more with more or less the same findings:

She is ahead of her time ! In 1000 years all people will look like her ! Yea ! Now thats equality . We will have achieved genetically engineered gender equality ! No more of those inconvieniet messy gender issues or marriage issues ... we will all be the same ! Complete with interchangeable genitalia and hormone kits too allow your offspring to explore all the magic of both sexes. Get yours now ... brought to you by Astron Bio Sciences ..

All kidding aside , more power too her ! If her show is succesful then its a good thing . If she has a growing vibrant audiance of people who like her than that is due to her hard work and ability. Good for her !

Problem is , MSNBC has in the past proved that they dont care about ratings as long as the right message is getting out.
You dig the hole .. I fill the hole . 100% employment !

I'd be very interested in knowing where your source compiled their data from..?. I'm using Nielsen... the worlds standard for this type data. For that same week they have as top 20:

#3... Bill
#4... Bill
#6... Bill
#10..Keith O
#12..H / C
#13..H / C
#18..Bill

These are only the shows in question. MNF was number 1. Rachel. Larry King and Campbell didn't even rank

That is great but total ratings is how score is kept so your point doesn't really hold water.

And one only needs to check the Nielsen ratings to see that O'Reilly is much more watched than Maddow or that other tool. By a lot too.
