Check out Sam Boyd’s American Prospect cover story on Rachel Maddow. It’s been out in print for a while, but for some reason the powers that be didn’t see fit to put it online to dovetail with the premiere.

One issue I’m interested in that I think hasn’t been aired yet is whether or not a new Obama administration will try to use the considerable leverage at its disposal to enhance the credibility and standing of some of the new more progressive media — with Maddow’s show certainly being a big part of that. People forget, but Fox News had quasi-pariah status at the beginning, but conservative politicians really insisted on getting it taken seriously and the Bush administration, when it came into office, did a lot to further entrench that.
