Rachel Maddow led her show last night with the disclaimer she was about to do something “controversial” for cable news: praise another network.
“CNN today is not what it used to be,” Maddow began.
“But once upon a time, CNN really was the only cable news network, and they really did have a singular role in keeping people informed about what was going on, not only around the country but around the world,” she continued.
Maddow’s CNN citation introduced a segment on the CIA, using Congressional history — and one of the Chamber’s most colorful members — as her guide.
