    Rachel Maddow claims MSNBC had no political bias

    This is one of the strangest claims I've seen by a media personality.........

    In an interview with Slate.com, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow unloaded the bizarre claim that Fox News is "operating with a political objective to elect Republican candidates," but MSNBC doesn't resemble that in any way.
    "I think the thing that is underappreciated about MSNBC is that we don't really do anything as a company, that we all sorta get to do our own thing," she claimed. "There may be liberals on TV at MSNBC, but the network is not operating with a political objective."

    Maddow is truly a dunderhead.

    Progressive hacks can't get enough of her, for a reason.

    That's a pretty outrageous and delusional thing to say.

    I think she has a point. She didn't say there weren't liberals or even PRIMARILY liberals hosting prime time slots.. just that the network as a WHOLE doesn't operate with a political objective based on their 24 hour schedule.

    Seen Morning Joe? Literally Three hours of yammering from mostly cons and a few faux libbies (Mika the Prude).

    Compare them to the dunderhead wingers over at Fox-n-Friends.

    You are so hopelessly delusional it's unreal.

    Faux reports on an issue and Bo will slice and dice it to hell and back.

    Maddow says the sky is green and Bo's like "well, you know she might be right".

    Nope, between 6 Am and 3 PM each weekday MSNBC runs a conservative-leaning morning show followed by straight news.

    Compare that to the Fox's 24 hour schedule of douchebaggery.
