Last night on Countdown, it was announced that Rachel Maddow will be getting her own show on MSNBC, directly following Keith.
I couldn't be happier about this development. Maddow is intelligent, perceptive, funny, and politically astute. Her Air America radio show is always engaging and entertaining.
Beyond that, though, any day we can get a good progressive on cable news to counter the fascists like O'Reilley and Glenn Beck is a good day.
