Rachel Maddow is leaving MSNBC in this bizarre career change

For 15 years, Rachel Maddow has been the number one voice on left-wing cable news.

But now she is stepping back.

And Rachel Maddow is leaving MSNBC in this bizarre career change.

Rachel Maddow is set to announce a hiatus from MSNBC to direct her attention towards movies and podcasts, including a film directed by Ben Stiller.

“Rachel Maddow reportedly will go on hiatus from her primetime talk show on MSNBC to focus on movie and podcast projects, including a film directed by Ben Stiller,” the New York Post reported.

“Maddow told staffers at the left-leaning, Comcast-owned network that she will step aside for a few weeks to devote time to her side projects, Business Insider reported on Monday,” the Post continued.

“She is expected to announce the move to viewers during Monday night’s broadcast. Maddow will executive produce a Focus Features movie based on her book and podcast, ‘Bag Man,’ about a political bribery scandal,” the Post added.

Last year, Maddow signed a new $30 million per year contract with MSNBC that called for her to leave her nightly talk show in 2022.

Maddow would transition into projects for MSNBC’s new streaming service.

As part of this hiatus, Maddow still covers major events, such as Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.

Maddow is the highest-rated leftist host on either MSNBC or CNN.

And Maddow’s hiatus is the beginning of her transitioning away from nightly hosting duties.

There is no obvious successor on the Left to Maddow.

Maddow’s departure comes at a time when ratings declined across all of cable news following Donald Trump leaving office.

That’s one reason why the corporate-controlled media covers Donald Trump so intensely even though he is no longer in office.

And it’s the real reason that no matter how much the corporate-controlled media smears Donald Trump as a direct threat to American democracy, journalists and news executives secretly hope he runs again in 2024.

Trump created a corporate-controlled media boom in 2015 by running for President and winning the 2016 election.

That surge in an interest in politics carried the corporate-controlled media to record ratings and subscriptions.

The corporate-controlled media desperately needs Donald Trump to run again.

Rachel Maddow is the only star on MSNBC’s primetime lineup.

No one at CNN can draw an audience.

Without Donald Trump running again in 2024, the corporate-controlled media may see a severe round of bloodletting and layoffs.
