WTF???!!! Rachel is falling all over herself,

giving Greta Van Sustern a tongue bath right now on Rachel's show. Is Rachel afraid that she's about to lose her (Rachel's) job given that MSNBC continues its full-bore charge to become another RW source? It's beyond embarrassing to watch Rachel proclaim her undying friendship for Van Sustern with her the best thing that's happened to TV commentary since Edward R. Murrow.

Van S. is a friend. I don't watch Rachel to hear about her friends - I watch her for some intelligent analysis. When she starts letting friendship color that it detracts from her value as an analyst and bothers me.

that he lied about "his sources in the FBI telling him that an indictment was pending against the Clinton Foundation"

She embarrassed herself with that one also.

Hack. I didn't always agree with there but she's a smart cookie. I think Rachel values her as aa friend along with some of the other females who've managed to hit the big time. I think that's what you're seeing in Rachel's enthusiasm. Girls have to stick together ya know.

I'm willing to give her a chance. do want to know if Chuck Todd is going somewhere? Can only run one show a 6 o'clock,

15. I want to wait and see what Greta does

I'm not a fan and have thought of her as right wing, but the rest of Rachel's show tonight was great. I am willing to see what happens if Greta doesn't have to answer to the right wing ding-dongs at Fox. I really don't expect much, but I am willing to wait and see before I bash her too much.

BTW, I hope you watched the first part of Rachel's show about The National Enquirer's headlines the last few weeks before the election and now after the election. The lies they told were spectacular and all for the benefit of Trump, not necessarily because they don't like Hillary. Makes me think they'd have made up equally terrible headlines about any Dem candidate. We are going to have to fight this kind of stuff... and get really GOOD at it.

I've recently tried to stick to C-Span for info or PBS, but I do generally like Rachel's show most of the time.

37. Along with some of the other things that were done at the same time

it might have swayed those on the fence, and there actually were some moderate Republicans considering voting against Trump. I think these attacks were planned and coordinated. Look at the short time between the WikiLeaks leak and when stories came out about #pizzagate and Podesta and his brother kidnapping Madeline McCann... oh, and spirit eating for god's sake. There's too much coincidence for me, but I'm a believer when it comes to Republicans and what they're capable of with their dirty tricks.

Maybe that is how she was able to transform from CNN legal analyst to Fox News - you know they learn how to push down all reactions and go into that glazey stone-faced state.

She was decent on CNN - but that was a looong time ago.

Rachel's show gets, by far, the highest ratings of any show on MSNBC. She's not going anywhere.

If Rachel believes VS is legit, I'm ready to give her a chance. IMHO, she's not a Fox babe. But let's see before launching slings and arrows at VS.
