And she has total control over her show. Management tried and failed when then jacked her crew around several months ago.

Her ratings are the best NBC/MSNBC are not about to mess with it. Understand some time back,upper Management wanted her Producers and Floor Directors to be more favorable to Trump. Did not happen,Maddow and her Program Producer let Management know under no circumstances will they change their story lines or cow tow to Trump's demands that NBC throttle her.

Have you noticed how Maddow's crew has expanded the Story line details in the last year. Her crew are doing old time News reporting. One can listen and watch Cable News all day,and then comes Maddow with the real story. The only other one that gets close to her News reporting is,O'Donnell and he to owns his Programing.

at CNN wanted to move their respective Media companies to the far Right much like Fake Noise.

Well.we seen how that worked out. Time Warner got hit by the Cable Cutters,Comcast,after donating millions to the Trump and GOP campaigns was hit with the same story,the Cable Cutters.

And the two mentioned dogs did not bark when it came to Eyeballs. Only Fake Noise viewers come back each day for the same worn out lies and bullshit. Ignorance is truly blissful for the ignorant.

BTW,O'Donnell's one hour program is the most viewed by most Senate Staffers. That was disclosed during the Kavanah Women's Hater Club Meetings,via one of the online news sites

Maddow's program last night has opened Pandora's Box on Saudi's and Trump Crime Syndicate.

...to Republicans, so they can appoint 15 judges without any struggle whatsoever. In exchange for getting to go home to campaign. As Rachel pointed out, that's a shitty deal, since Republicans also want to go home to campaign. She added that we shouldn't expect any better from Democrats.

Given that Rachel is sometimes brutally honest about Democrats, I'm surprised there are so many DUers who like her. I like Rachel and have no objection to constructive criticism, but DU doesn't seem to have much tolerance for the latter.
