Rachel Maddow burst into the mainstream public eye in the lead up to the 2008 US presidential election. She hosts her own nightly news show, The Rachel Maddow Show, on MSNBC. She was the first openly gay American to win a Rhodes Scholarship and holds a Doctor of Philosophy in politics from Oxford University. Her intelligent, well researched and refreshingly left leaning reporting has won her many fans.
Every night is a memorable night on Maddow's show, but last night was particularly satisfying as she took on and demolished ex-gay therapist Richard Cohen over his involvement in the Ugandan "Kill The Gays" bill. Watch and be astounded!
