This morning on Morning Joe, co-host Willie Geist brought up the Drudge Report call-out to Rachel Maddow for her Tuesday ratings. The Rachel Maddow Show was the top-rated on MSNBC that night, surpassing the usual #1 Countdown with Keith Olbermann (Maddow was tops in the A25-54 demo last Wednesday as well).
“She’s a good person,” said Mike Barnicle.
Co-host Joe Scarborough, who has had his on air disagreements with Maddow, agreed. “But she is a good, good person. We probably don’t agree on anything politically. But she’s respectful of people, and it’s great,” he said.
No mention during the segment of the usual top-rated MSNBC show.
