More real journalism by Rachel Maddow

December 25, 2008 | By | Reply More

Rachel Maddow knows how to keep after a story.   More journalists should take heed that they shouldn’t merely serve as stenographers for those in power.   They should aggressively pursue their stories, like Maddow did here, and speak truth to power.   And shame on Laura Tyson for not taking the initiate to disclose her substantial financial in the “bailout” money prior to the referenced interview.

And can we quit calling the wholesale irresponsible hemorrhaging of tax money we don’t actually have the “bailout”?
