For the love of Olbermann, put down that sequined skirt!

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 4-169Page Six is reporting that MSNBC, in anticipation of the increased visibility that the super-cute butch will receive one her new show debuts on September 8, has ordered a "glam squad" makeover for Rachel Maddow:

WAY TO SKIRT THE ISSUE [NY Post]

All leading up to the new season of:

Because who needs gravitas and credibility when you can have generic SEX-Y?

Your thoughts

Personally, I'd take Gwen Ifel and Jim Lehrer over any of those guys anyway, including Rachel Maddow. I don't need my news pre-spun to the left or right. I just want the facts.

For the DNC, I eventually turned to CSPAN because MSNBC and CNN weren't providing much coverage. All they were providing were far-left and far-right pundits trying to shout over each other with their pre-spun infotainment. I don't need talking heads. I need the news.

Rachel's better than most of those dopes, but she still likes to put a spin on it. And who cares if she's in a skirt or slacks, especially when all I see is from the waist up.

Infotainment is not journalism. The talking heads on CNN and MSNBC and FOX are not journalists. They aren't there to provide you the news. They are there to entertain enough people so they can sell advertising.

I LIve chatted with Pam Spaulding and Julien Sharp and Autumn and the gang before, but not during Obama's speech. That was a great way to provide our own 'spin.' And somebody knew the answer to any question we posed! It was like sitting up in the booth with them. I watched CSpan for exactly those reasons too.
