Rachel Maddow Says Goodbye To Michael Hastings (VIDEO)

Michael Hastings, the journalist best known for exposing the insubordinate comments of General Stanley McChrystal, for Rolling Stone in June of 2010, died yesterday morning in a fiery one car accident. I had seen Hastings, only 33, as a guest panelist on many a news program over the last couple of years. While I did not always agree with him, I never found him to be less than forthright in his convictions and he was always sharp, clever, and frequently funny.

I intended to write up a complete tribute to Hastings today, but after viewing Rachel’s moving remembrance from her MSNBC show last night, I thought it better just to share that and let it stand alone.

I think you will find I made the correct choice.
