Ahead on the 8/8 Maddow Show

Updated

Tonight’s guests:

  • Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post
  • Michael Moore, Academy Award-winning filmmaker, author, “Here comes trouble”

The demands on Julia’s skills exceeded the bounds of time and space today so I got to man the camera for tonight’s video with TRMS executive producer Bill Wolff. Mad with power I tried two experiments: One was to try to softer side of the light reflector we’ve been using to make it look less like Bill works in a cave. I think it didn’t work as well as the shiny side Julia’s been using.

The other experiment (really Bill’s idea if you watch the video) is to see if you, the viewer, now informed of tonight’s stories, can guess any of the phrases that will be used in the graphic that appears behind Rachel (called the RP or “rear projection graphic”). I didn’t think far enough ahead to be able to offer a prize, so we’ll call this one for bragging rights. Based on the stories Bill describes in the video below, can you guess any of the RPs?  

Here’s the audio viewing companion to set the mood. (Note: The music is not a RP clue.)

I also accept the blame for the low audio. Turn it up!
