Report: Rachel Maddow Will Take Hiatus From MSNBC Show  

The network will be using rotating anchors in the interim to fill Maddow’s chair on her show.

Rachel Maddow appears to be stepping away from the news desk. Business Insider reports that the MSNBC host will be taking a hiatus beginning February 7th. 

Maddow is taking a break from the daily news scene because she will be working on new projects with her former boss Phil Griffin. The report states she will announce her hiatus on Monday night’s edition of the “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

There’s no exact date for her return, but ill be back in “a few weeks,” said an MSNBC insider. The network will be using rotating anchors in the interim to fill Maddow’s chair on her show. 

Departing for a few weeks will allow Maddow to work on a Focus Features film based on her book and podcast “Bag Man” regarding a political bribery scandal. Ben Stiller will direct the movie; meanwhile, Maddow will be an executive producer. 

Upon her return, the MSNBC host plans to continue her primetime show five nights a week, one of the sources stated to Business Insider. Furthermore, the source said that Maddow wouldn’t vanish from the network completely as she would return for special event coverage during this hiatus.

When Maddow extended her contract with NBCUniversal last year, the agreement permits her to decrease the hours on-air and gives her time to set up a new production venture.

Former CBS reporter turned abortion activist Kate Smith rejects critics who believe that her reporting on the issue during her time at the network was biased. According to Fox News, Smith appeared on “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter Sunday to discuss the issue.

“I would say that by making that accusation, you’re playing into the right. And anyone who doesn’t fall by their rules, who isn’t anti-abortion, is against them,” Smith said.

In an article, The National Review called Smith an “ambassador” for Planned Parenthood and accused her of writing what amounted to press releases for the organization.

“I really reject all of that criticism… Again, I think these people just don’t understand how newsrooms work; they don’t have that kind of experience. But yeah, completely reject that criticism,” she said.

Smith reportedly spoke out in favor of abortion shortly after leaving CBS last year.

“Now that I’m not a reporter, I can be candid about my own opinions on reproductive rights,” Smith wrote. “I’ll say this: With or without Roe v Wade, access to abortion is disappearing across the South and Midwest for low-income women. And it’s happening more or less under the radar.”

President Joe Biden on Inflation: “We Brought Down the Deficit”

Biden was pressed by CNN on the record-high inflation plaguing Americans during a news conference on Tuesday.

According to Mediate, President Joe Biden was pressed by CNN on the record-high inflation plaguing Americans during a news conference on Tuesday. Biden was attempting to outline his plans to deal with the issue when he encountered White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond.

“Why do you believe so many Americans believe that your administration is not doing enough to combat inflation?” Diamond asked before encountering the president’s typical talking points on the issue.

“The vast majority of Americans are hoping that their government just takes care of the problem, and they don’t have to think about it in detail, at the kitchen table, at the dinner table. And that’s understandable no matter what their background,” the president said. 

Biden said he believes his administration has done its best to establish policies that helped have American families during this time period. “We brought down the deficit. The bottom line is, how much does America owe? How much in the hole are we going? We’re reducing that.” He added.

Last month, The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that inflation hit a 40-year high as gas prices and rent skyrocketed, climbing to 8.5%. Inflation is a decrease in the purchasing power of money, reflected in a general increase in the prices of goods and services in an economy.
