Huffington, NBC News Reconciling?

Nov 17, 2008  •  Post A Comment

TVNewser is just as confused as everyone with the news of Arianna Huffington’s guest hosting gig tonight on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” given Huffington’s testy relationship with NBC News and its late senior VP and “Meet the Press” anchor Tim Russert. Huffington’s political blog The Huffington Post featured a “Russert Watch” to track Russert’s “softball” questioning of politicians and just last April there were questions of whether or not Russert kept Huffington off NBC’s networks during her book tour. Apparently it’s all water under the bridge between NBC and Huffington. “We’re thrilled to have Arianna filling in for Rachel tonight,” an MSNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser.
