MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow lambasted FOX News “talent” on the air tonight during the left-leaning network’s coverage of the 2012 election. Mediaite recaps the on-air dialogue that ensued:
“I don’t mean to cross-advertise here, but I want to note that conservative cable news network Fox News Channel – Fox News Channel called Ohio for Obama, but the on-air talent is refusing to concede that they believe it,” Rachel Maddow said.
“Karl Rove is describing this as being just like 2000 and it is not over,” Maddow added.
“Can you define that word ‘talent’ for the people who are not in this industry,” asked Chris Matthews. “They happen to have positions. It doesn’t say anything about their quality.”
“People who wear makeup and have cameras pointed at them,” Maddow replied.

Maddow also took aim at Republican strategist Karl Rove and his quest to get Fox News to, as the host said, “rescind its call in Ohio in favor of the candidate he has bankrolled to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Her comments here refer to Rove’s support of Romney through Crossroads GPS, his super PAC. Additionally, she lambasted Republicans for allegedly not accepting realistic political developments.
“We have seen something sort of different happen on the right…the right questioning what used to be basic agreed upon data,” Maddow proclaimed.
