MSNBC just ran a promo for Rachel Maddow’s interview tonight with Rod Blagojevich, and the graphic called it an “exclusive!”

Talk about a word that has lost all meaning. I guess no one at the network noticed Blago on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Early Show, The View, and Larry King Live in the last two days. I think I even saw him playing Plinko with Drew Carey.

Or maybe by “exclusive” they mean “the only interview with an impeached Illinois governor that’s on MSNBC at that time.”

Update: That’s exactly what they mean. When I typed this entry, I didn’t have the sound up and was going solely on the visuals. What I didn’t know was that Maddow had tongue planted firmly in cheek as she announced the “exclusive” on last night’s show…
