Keith can only dream of being this good. Though I believe that he fought to some extent to get her on the air I think the big wigs were planning on doing it anyway. But how much you want to bet that it bothers him that she's doing so well? Apparently she can't seem to do anything without him putting his 2 cents worth in. And without it looking as if he is the sole reason she's on and doing good. She's been around for a long time. Hell, she was on Tucker Carlsons show numerous times. So Tucket gets "fired" and suddenly Keith is interested in her? Hmph.
If he was so good at placing people in the right positions, what the hell happened to Katy? I could almost guarantee you that if Rachel wasn't gay he wouldn't have had any input.
Women scare him. It's not that he doesn't like women because he does. He's just terrified of them.
But putting that aside, just for the moment, Katy could learn a thing or three from Rachel. First thing she could learn is how to dress properly on air.
On one side of her still-bare office hang about a dozen suits in varying shades of black and gray, her on-air uniform."It is a rainbow of monochrome," acknowledged Maddow, who dresses off-air like a gangly teenager in baggy jeans and sneakers. "I just want to meet a basic threshold of what you're supposed to look like on television so it's not a topic of concern or discussion."
The second thing she could learn is to relax. I feel sorry for her sometimes because she's not getting the proper education she needs to become a good news reporter. And Keith had the audacity to talk about women and credibility? I think he needs to sum up his own credibility before making such a stupid statement.
"There is a different set of standards regarding women and credibility and aggressiveness on the air," he said. "And Rachel manages to keep her credibility and her forcefulness and obviously her intelligence, but there's also just a fundamental likability that really works to her advantage."
That's very chauvinistic of him, isn't it? Was he trying to compare her to the women on FOX? Or even to Katy? There are news women all over this world with a great deal more credibility than he has.
He needs to quit while he's behind.
