CableNewsCritic.com a popular cable news industry blog, now predicts that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow will be canceled since the ratings are so low that it has fallen behind CNN’s Lou Dobbs re-runs.
I have watched Rachel Maddow. She has a cute smile and a very entertaining rhetorical style. She has spunk and in spite of the bad hair and wardrobe she is a likable character to be sure. Where Maddow falls down is on the substance. Once you have seen her show for a couple of weeks you have seen it all.
Maddow spins hard for the left, much like Sean Hannity does for the right, and while spin has its place, the spin still has to be directionally accurate and has to hold up so anyone doing 20 minutes of internet or public records research to see if it mostly holds up and more and more this is where Maddow gets in trouble.
UPDATE – Phil Donahue made more ratings at MSNBC than Olby, but for MSNBC it is not about ratings. It is about the billions in contracts that GE has with the government and the kick backs GE sends to the Democrats, PAC’s and their lobbyist clients. It is about Obama taking the missile shield away from our allies in Eastern Europe and the next day Russia announces that it is doing new business with GE. GE has also been doing business in Iran using a subsidiary.
We quoted this article because it was interesting, not because we think MSNBC will yank Maddow. MSNBC’s ratings are so bad, and have been for so long that it has become rather obvious that GE is running it at a loss (and we define loss as at below opportunity costs) to keep the Democrats happy and the fat contracts flowing.
UPDATE II – Maddow claims that The Constitution does not have a preamble… - LINK.
