<p>Rachel Maddow became the first member of the MSNBC community on Thursday evening to express her support for recently removed <em>NBC Nightly News </em>anchor Brian Williams and took time on her eponymous show to opine that she&rsquo;s <strong>&ldquo;really happy&rdquo;</strong> he will be joining her on the cable network since she<strong> &ldquo;believe[s] in redemption&rdquo;</strong> and <strong>&ldquo;second chances.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>After summarizing the news regarding the decision, Maddow wanted to make clear that<strong> &ldquo;nobody at this company asked me to make this statement&rdquo;</strong> and while she speculated that she was<strong> &ldquo;causing some schpilcus somewhere in this building because I&#39;m talking about this,&rdquo; </strong>she felt that she owed it to viewers<strong> &ldquo;to tell you what I know&rdquo; </strong>and<strong> &ldquo;also to tell you what I think.&rdquo;</strong></p>
