The Worst Thing About Rachel Maddow’s Job: “I Worry That it is Self-Indulgent”

Maddow_10.18.jpgWe love a TV pundit who is unsure whether his/her role as a TV pundit “is a worthy thing to contribute to the world.” That’s what Rachel Maddow told the New York Times’ Edward Lewine in the Domains column in this weekend’s Magazine.

“It’s fun, but I worry that it is self-indulgent,” she says.

The Q&A focuses on her life away from the MSNBC studio at her and her partner’s Massachusetts farmhouse, where she arrives “around 2 a.m. Saturday” after Friday night’s show. Her Saturday morning routine includes going to the local dump with her dog.
