In the first few hours after Andrea Mitchell’s interview with Hillary Clinton, reactions poured in on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports and MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts that ranged from Rachel Maddow dismissing the growing e-mail scandal as “kinetic activity” to The Washington Post’s Anne Gearan fawning over her “one-on-one” skills to Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd excusing her non-answers to her versatility in “diplomatic speak.”

Not only after the final clips of the interview were shown, Maddow commented to Mitchell that “people are talking about” the scandal “so much” and actually seemed exasperated that “it’s getting so much attention” with “so many questions” unanswered.
