I know that much of this simply reiterates what I posted at 6:15 however first off I think this information deserves to be shared repeatedly, and second Rachel does an amazing job of sharing it in a way that is both informative and entertaining.
Which by the way has certainly gained her show some special notice.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dedicated 53 percent of her program over the past six weeks to Russia, according to a Thursday analysis from the left-leaning The Intercept.
“Maddow’s Russia coverage has dwarfed the time devoted to other top issues, including Trump’s escalating crackdown on undocumented immigrants (1.3 percent of coverage); Obamacare repeal (3.8 percent); the legal battle over Trump’s Muslim ban (5.6 percent), a surge of anti-GOP activism and town halls since Trump took office (5.8 percent), and Trump administration scandals and stumbles (11 percent)," the analysis reads.
As we have mentioned before this approach has garnered Maddow quite a number of new viewers and the ratings for show continue to climb.
And the fact that this is clearly driving the Trump supporters around the bend is easily measured by the number of angry comments we receive right here on IM, insulting Rachel and attacking the format of her show, which is apparently too factually driven for habitual viewers of Fox News and Alex Jones.
Let's face it good journalism is enjoying a renaissance right now, and information seekers are finally starting to recognize the incredible contribution made by folks like Rachel Maddow.
