I don't know if she'll be on for sure. Foxnews.com says she's on. The Activity Pit (a Red Eye fan page) and the Daily Gut both say that she isn't.

Never mind. Watching her now. She's got the Sarah Palin look going on.

Rachel Maddow pwns Julie Bandeiras any day. At least, Rachel Maddow gets more press, which is great.
In other news, Democrat[IC] (Angry Rich Impersonation) Underground is in an uproar over Joe Scarborogh (intentional sic) using the B-word:
They want Rachel Maddow to do more TV.
My suggestion, Sam Seder, and let Rachel Maddow go on after Keith Olbermann.

I'm so glad these J$P comment threads don't have a MikeH to pick fights--or should I say "debate"?--with the regular commenters.

Thank you for recognizing that there is a bias in the media, and that Maddow has been the recipient of a remarkable amount of praise and press from a fawning, ideologically driven group of "media critics."
The overflow of articles is further evidence that the "critics" cannot be trusted to be objective, rather they write about what THEY like, and then lie about their bias.
Thank you for recognizing this. Many folks in your position wouldn't be able to.

I just read on the web where Moody (VP Fox) said that if the story of the girl getting attacked in Pittsburgh was a fake it would be the end of McCain. He's probably right.

No political candidate can be responsible for every rally attendee or volunteer. I'm sick of every radical random fringe person being linked to McCain.
I hope Moody is wrong, but yeah, he's probably right.
On a lighter note, it was nice to see Julie sporting the Palin look on "Red Eye." I haven't seen her wear those glasses since she was an anchor at Fox 5 (WNYW). Either her fiance is tall or he looked tall when she brought him out during Andy Levy's Postgame Wrap-Up.

After Tues MESSNBC ratings surge, Wed & Thur #'s reflect who is still the king. It's good to be the king re the FoxNews lineup. My question is what is distant 3rd place CNN/HEADLINE NEWS going to do about sinking #'s. Maybe they just wait until after elections to adjust their lineup. Just when KO was about to be crowned the top liberal talking head as he turned to his Oracle and said "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest left wing nutjob of them all? Answer, Rachel Maddow

Rachel Maddow is very entertaining and piques the intellect. Too bad she looks like a boy.
Made for radio.

Keithy went to town on BOR over his disputing the ratings success of MSNBC in segment #1 on tonight's "Countdown." "It was rough, I tell ya," as Rodney Dangerfield would say. Seriously, it was painful. I recapped it for OlbyWatch.
