One of Maddow's critics was Stephen Colbert, who mocked her non-bombshell of a report on Wednesday's The Late Show. In the clip (below), Colbert reveals he has acquired a long-awaited joke that Americans have been waiting to hear!
But not every late night host poked fun at Maddow's release. Jimmy Fallon invited the journalist on Wednesday's Tonight Show, where she spoke on the behind the scenes drama that came with getting the White House to authenticate the documents mere hours before the show aired.
While not many viewers were pleased with the outcome, Maddow's longtime partner Susan Mikula was — and bought the financial reporter a congratulatory gift for breaking the story!
Ch-ch-check out the clips (below) to hear Maddow's inside scoop — and see Colbert hilariously spoof her report!
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
