Terrific news about terrific news...

I was expecting this or hoping for this sometime after the election, but MSNBC and Keith Olbermann jumped the gun. Starting September 8th, Air America host, frequent MSNBC political pundit, and Countdown With Keith Olbermann guest host Rachel Maddow will be getting her own show following Olbermann himself on MSNBC at 9pm est. I sincerely hope the network finds another home for legal analyst (and occasional general manager) Dan Abrams, but this is a terrific development for anyone who cares about fostering an actual liberal media, to say nothing of rewarding a very intelligent and entertaining news pundit. No worries, as she'll continue her 6pm Air America radio show (quite fortunate, as she entertains me as I get stuck in traffic on the way home from work). Congratulations Maddow and all involved. I guess this makes the brass at MSNBC today's 'Best Persons In The World'.
