Maddow recently asked Hillary Clinton if the Clintons had a 'no new friends' rule as many influential people do . . . She jazzed up her audience for twenty minutes like it was going to be some big deal to ask such a deeply personal question before she finally popped it too.
You do have to give Maddow credit for asking her web audience to weigh in on if they wanted news or bull. The audience overwhelmingly said they prefer bull. Figures.
This is yet another example of how and why cable 'noose,' and maybe more importantly their viewership, is killing actual journalism. People tune in and 'toon out', becoming narrowly informed as opposed to broadly informed on issues. Viewers self-select out of information that disagrees with their strongly held bias and turn up the volume to reinforce those same biases.
I'm fairly certain the far left will enjoy it, unless they don't care for the outcomes for their preferred candidates. And, when the outcomes don't match their expectations, they'll blame her, the media, the pundits, and do the same slash and burn that was done after the first democratic presidential debate. That brand of post-debate behavior rarely elevates the discussion.
