Rachel Maddow a welcome addition to TV land

Rachel Maddow’s news/talk show on MSNBC is one that has slipped under my radar but I’ve started to become something of an addict. The Daily Show influences are detectable, which is not a bad thing, but the show is not just a clone.

Maddow presents an  interesting combination of Jon Stewart’s cynicism combined with a much harder, more intellectual, interviewing style. All in all, quite a smart move by MSNBC considering the number of younger people who now like their politics and current affairs served up with a satirical edge.  

Worth a look, so I’ve posted a clip of Maddow skewering Cheney earlier this week.
