Believe it or not Countdown use to be a very informative news show. Keith was once a good journalist and he would interview a wide variety of people. But somewhere between the public ass kicking from karma and his sudden co-habitation with an extremely young girl he turned into someone very disturbing.
He became excruciatingly bitter towards the world and attacked anybody who didn't agree with him. And this is who he is today.
It's one thing to call out those who have done this country wrong, but it's a whole other dimension when you base your career on those who fail, those you make fail, those you chide for saying stupid things and those who could possibly be you.
Keith no longer pays attention to the big story unless he can say something bad about other commentators, Republicans and anybody who doesn't fit his "idea" of how the news is suppose to be reported.
Of course, it's not just Keith but he's the only one I have read about that spends most, if not all, of his hour on television trying to take down his opposition. This gets old and it tends to make one think that he has nowhere else to go.
His show has become commonplace and predictable. NBC/MSNBC has become one of the coldest manufacturers in the news business. And Keith is their lead manufacturer. Yes, I believe he kisses their asses. This is the only way he could've gotten as far as he is.
I have been watching Countdown and talking about Keith for 6 years. The changes he has made in his life is disturbing and, recently, has made me wonder about his sanity. I'm finding it more and more difficult to sit through one of his shows without rolling my eyes. I just wait for the time that he's bashing someone where he finishes his statement with "nannynannybooboo, stick your head in doodoo".
This is the mentality he is bringing to his show and I can't take much more of it. So I'm going to get out of this circle of hate and unwarranted attacks and go read a book. Maybe I'll come back, maybe I won't. But at the moment, this package has been refused.
