    big BUT - she a) reports facts and b) owns up when there is a factual error in her show.

    There have been scientific studies on this Mr T that show the lack of verity on the FNC. And the resulting ignorance in their audience.

      claim it's hypocritical but the truth is the right wing is an echo chamber of irrational fear and lies, ballant lies.

      these is no hypocracy issue here. Rachael might be extremely biased but at least she doesn't report untrue filth.

      I think Rachel Maddow  would have done the right thing and notified  the court privately that she had been given pretrial info (That are also private medical records) quietly instead of publishing them for page hits.

      I think there is something fundamentally different between doing investigative journalism and protecting sources and being a mouth piece for someone in power to exercise that power covertly.

       Of course, she could also be protecting her own IT department for breaking the law and we have something entirely different.  A common cyber criminal like her co-workers at The Sun.
