Maddow went on to Stanford University to study public policy after finishing high school. Her sexual orientation was exposed in the student newspaper while she was a student at Stanford. They had no idea she was gay until now. To further her education after graduating from Stanford, Maddow enrolled at Oxford’s Lincoln College in 1995 to pursue a master’s degree. She completed her doctoral studies in politics at Oxford in 2001.


Rachel Maddow got her start in talk radio while still in college. One of her earliest jobs was as a co-host of the popular Boston morning show “The Dave in the Morning Show” on WRNX. The show Big Breakfast is why she left one Boston station for another in the Bay State. She became well-known after she hosted Unfiltered, a morning show that included Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show. Maddow was awarded her own radio programme, The Rachel Maddow Show, after the cancellation of Unfiltered in 2005. After Maddow moved to television, this show continued to air until 2010.

It was in 2005 that Rachel Maddow first appeared on MSNBC’s Tucker. Finally, in 2006, she was a guest on Paula Zahn Now on CNN. The year 2008 was her break out year, when she began appearing regularly on Countdown with Keith Olbermann and working as an analyst for MSNBC’s Race for the White House. When Keith Obermann was unable to host the later show’s part, she stepped in. As she was well-liked by the audience, Obermann let her continue hosting some shows even after he returned to his regular duties. Then, Obermann lobbied MSNBC to let Maddow host her own programme.

By the latter part of 2008, MSNBC has announced the premiere of The Rachel Maddow Show. As soon as it premiered, the show was a ratings success and quickly rose to the top of the channel’s list of most-watched shows. Maddow’s “winning formula” was lauded by reviewers and viewers alike, and her show became a staple of MSNBC’s lineup for years. While CNN and Fox News continued to lose viewers in 2017, MSNBC gained ground. Growing unease over the new Trump administration was primarily to blame.

On her show, The Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow often goes on lengthy rants. Her lengthy monologues can last up to twenty minutes.


There was a lot of eye-rolling when viewers learned that Rachel Maddow and Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News, had a strong working connection. She mentioned that she and he frequently conferred through phone calls to discuss technical aspects of her newscasts. She kept this secret because she was afraid her secret would be used against her. In an effort to silence her, she later alleged that Ailes had offered her a “not to work” contract.

In 2019, Maddow was sued for $10 million by One America News Network. The TV network said Maddow’s characterization of them as “paid Russian propaganda” harmed their reputation. The allegations surfaced after Maddow mentioned a Daily Beast piece that revealed an OAN staffer was also employed by the Russian news agency Sputnik News.

The liberal tilt of Rachel Maddow’s show has been a regular subject of criticism. They say she is just parroting the Democratic Party line, and they’re right. Maddow defends herself by saying that she is different from other liberal pundits because she is a “national security liberal” and hence not a partisan. Although she is generally opposed to American military involvement abroad, she was strongly against Trump’s decision to pull troops out of Syria. Also, Maddow has been on record as a firm believer in the conspiracy theory that claims Trump’s administration colluded with Russia.
