There simply is no hard news on cable in prime time. Rachel Maddow is the just one who comes close–and of course she falls wanting hard news on account of her editorial slant. Other than her, cable news is an entire desolate tract. If you actually need news, then cable “news” is a red herring. Instead, pick up a copy of the New York Times, or your metropolitan daily, or go visit the BBC News website, or patronize your local blogs.
Tune into NPR on the radio, or watch PBS. You’ll do better for yourself with any of these alternatives. Hell, switch on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Even Ted Baxter doing fictitious news that’s thirty years out of date can be more informative than trash like Hannity.
