Rachel Maddow on ‘Late Night,’ Judge Napolitano on ‘The Daily Show’

Some familiar cable news faces made the rounds in late night last night: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano visited “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

Maddow and Meyers talked about their shared love for the Boston Red Sox and comic books, as well as why the Chris Christie bridgegate scandal continues to be captivating. “It’s still unexplained at the heart of it, and I think that’s the main reason it’s not going away. Also, it’s so salacious,” Maddow said. “…It’s so gangster. It’s very Sopranos.” Watch (at about the 22 minute mark):

Meanwhile, on “The Daily Show,” Judge Napolitano locked horns with Stewart over the necessity of the civil war. Read more

Rachel Maddow: ‘I’m About to Praise a Rival Cable News Network’

Rachel MaddowRachel 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.

The Ticker: Maddow, Sawyer, Fox News

  • Rachel Maddow will host “Why We Did It” at 9pmET on March 6. A follow up to 2013′s “Hubris: Selling the Iraq War,” the documentary reveals new documents and interviews with those involved in planning the Iraq War, with MSNBC billing it as the “never-before-told story of what was happening behind that public case.”

  • “World News with Diane Sawyer” is bringing back the series “Real Money” in the form of “Real Money: Making Money.” From March 3 to March 5, the series will show real and practical ways for people to make money in their spare time.

  • Fox News College Challenge is back with submissions for entry due on Monday, March 3.  The challenge asks college students to submit their own news video package, with a potential $10,000 prize and job interview with the network among the prizes.

Rosie O’Donnell Would ‘Love’ CNN 9pm Slot, But Denies She’s Being Considered

Former “The View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell took to Twitter this morning to respond to a NY Daily News report that she’s on CNN’s short-list to replace Piers Morgan at 9pmET.

It’s doubtful CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker feels too rosy about O’Donnell: back in 2010, she said Zucker—who was President of NBC Entertainment at the time—should be ashamed of himself (along with Jay Leno) for not handing over the “Tonight Show” reins more readily to then-”Late Show” host Conan O’Brien.

O’Donnell was in serious talks with MSNBC in 2007 to host a show there.

Did Media Coverage of Controversial Arizona Bill Help Lead to Veto?

BrewerBillAll three cable news networks carried Arizona Governor Jan Brewer‘s press conference last night announcing her veto of a controversial bill that would allow businesses’ and people to refuse service to LGBT people based on religious beliefs.

After the announcement, Anderson Cooper replayed parts of an interview he did the night before with one of the bill’s sponsor, Arizona State Senator Nancy Barto.

Cooper asked her six separate times if she could name one example that had already happened where people of faith had been forced to do something against their religious beliefs.  “I can raise a hypothetical,” Barto said, citing a hypothetical same sex marriage where a photographer who didn’t want to provide service wouldn’t have protection.

Governor Brewer, shown above vetoing the bill, had similar phrasing to Cooper during her announcement: “I have not heard of one example in Arizona where business owners religious liberty has been violated.”

Fox News broke into “On the Record” with Shepard Smith reporting on the press conference. “I think Governor Brewer did the right thing,” New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte told Greta Van Susteren when FNC whipped back to “On the Record.”  Megyn Kelly led “The Kelly File” interviewing Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on the news out of Arizona. On Tuesday night, Kelly and Brit Hume wondered whether the bill was an “overreaction” by religious conservatives.

Over on MSNBC, Chris Hayes took over for Chris Matthews coming out of the press conference at 7:51pmET, still during “Hardball.” Hayes spoke with the Arizona Democratic Minority Leader Anna Tovar via phone on her reaction to the veto. Rachel Maddow led her show with news of the veto, covering the other states who are considering similar bills to Arizona. Lawrence O’Donnell noted the media’s impact on forcing a veto: “They got away with it until we focused on it…we the national media.” Read more
