Furious viewers accused the network of ‘sexism’ and said Maddow was more than competent to cover the news without any help from Williams.
These types of stories are usually ginned up bullshit, but there is a point and a precedent.
Back when Peter Jennings was reporting on the O.J Simpson standoff he repeatedly cut off and was rude to Barbara Walters.
Now I think a lot of these journos are garbage, but Maddow anchors a highly successful show and has made her bones. Why does she need to get bumped for a serial liar?
