(Newser) Meet the Press has been pretty lame since Tim Russert died. No offense to David Gregory, who’s done respectable work, but he was always the safe choice, "and he's made the show just that: safe," writes Brian Donovan. NBC's Sunday morning stalwart needs its fire back, and fortunately, sister network MSNBC already employs the perfect person for the job. “And that person is Rachel Maddow.”

Maddow is definitely not a safe choice, because she wears her liberal bias on her sleeve. “But, just like Russert, Maddow is ruthless when it comes to the truth." She’s perfectly willing to call out liberals when they deceive the public; President Obama, for example, has earned her ire over Guantanamo Bay, health care, and gay rights. She’s guaranteed “fascinating, informative, action-packed political discussion. And that beats the hell out of a little Sunday brunch, right?”

If NBC wants to see the MTP ratings go completely in the toilet, they only need to make that dyke Maddow the host. Nobody wants to listen to her liberal rants week after week. NBC management needs to be reminded from time to time, that people outside NYC actually watch TV!

I was giving myself hell, shonangreg, for misreading Enoughie's post, but I posted it in the wrong place. I usually agree with myself, but occasionally I have to give myself a good dressing down. And no, I do not have multiple personality disorder, that I'm aware of. BTW, I hope this posts in the right place.

Gregory is awful, but Madcow would be worse. Who needs another arrogant, narcissistic on television all the time? Olberman and Madcow can't get enough of Obamessiah and are always berating Bush.
