Fox Nation's Awful Rachel Maddow Headline

Fox News' opinion website Fox Nation ran quite the headline above a story on Rachel Maddow's Grammy Award nomination.

The MSNBC host was nominated for Best Spoken Word Album with her book, "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power." Fellow category nominees include Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama.

While most websites ran with a straightforward headline announcing her nomination, Fox Nation took a different approach.

Above a bizarrely-chosen photo of Maddow, a headline reads, "Rachel Madd-Cow Gets a Grammy Nomination?"

When Maddow appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show in 2011, the MSNBC host discussed how she receives hate mail from people who call her Rachel Mad-Cow.

Maddow said, "A constant 14 percent of the feedback I get is hate mail," she said. "But 100 percent of that 14 percent hate mail is about what what I look like ... 'I hate you because you're Rachel MadCOW, you look like a cow!' Or, 'You're Rachel but I'm going to call you him.'" She joked that she would like to get new hate mail that was not about her "being mannish and cow-like."

Stay classy, Fox Nation!
