I don't think I've ever seen "talking heads" on Maddow's show. It's unbecoming.

1. Why? Most cable shows have guests offering opinions.

5. "Ari had talking heads in"

I think it's b/c it was Ari.. He does talking heads on his shows, right? Rachel just interviews just one person.

6. Maddow controls all content

 

for her programming. Her time slot has the highest ratings and why ruin a good thing. Maddow is the go to for facts and Talking Heads are all about spreading a Narrative or a divisive meme.

8. Rachel doesn't do talking heads and rarely ever has on more than one guest at a time

 

I never noticed until a few months ago when she interviewed three of the Parkland shooting survivors and mentioned that she was making an exception to her practice of not interviewing multiple people in a segment.

That's one of the things that make her show excellent. She can let her guests speak, get information, and ask follow-up questions without the shoutfests we've become used to.
