Power List 2013: RACHEL MADDOW
By Out.com Editors
TV Host/Political Commentator, 40
Now king of the mountain at MSNBC, Maddow gave Fox News a run for its money during the 2012 election cycle and was nominated for an Emmy this past December, all while holding on to her loyal viewership and delivering hard-hitting criticism of the political climate. The host has become a staple in the political media by standing up for the marginalized, sticking to her core values, and making a few cocktails, all with that lopsided smirk of hers.
