Posted on 12/26/2010 1:12:26 PM PST by Nachum
Both Fox News Channels Sean Hannity and MSNBCs Rachel Maddow offered their best to outgoing legendary anchor Larry King on Dec. 16, his final broadcast night. But how does the outgoing CNN anchor feel about them? On CNNs Sunday broadcast of Reliable Sources, host Howard Kurtz asked King about his competitors, which he was third to in the ratings at the tail-end of his career. King admitted they were good at what they did, but said he didnt particularly care for it. They got better ratings, King said. However, I dont regret anything and Im happy with what I did.

And who is Larry King but the host of a very mediocre cable show.
In all seriousness, exactly how is it that he's legendary?
He’s extremely left IMO.
That’s not just your opinion. When he did radio 20+ years ago, he was the typical radio host, which meant he was way left of center.
Back then, there was little to counter that ideology. Then came Rush (whom King has made derogatory comments about) and the rest is history.
King was never even a good interviewer, but he did persevere.
I think Larry died quite a while ago.
They just haven’t gotten around to embalming him yet.
Well, I wouldn’t call it a “crushing blow”, but King does have a point.
Hannity is entertaining, but I never tune in expecting any sort of serious debate. He’s very much a talking points guy, and he tends to talk over his guests regardless of their views.
Maddow, of course, is a complete leftist shill. The only difference between her and the likes of Olbermann and “Sgt” Ed Schultz is that Maddow is smart enough to put on a phony “journalist cap” when she spins.
I had a late night paper route for years, and listened to King to stay awake. It was the only thing on, and even then his style and substance were boring and really boring. He was the original man that when asked a question he did not want to answer, would just hang up. In short, he has the “nads” of gender bending female, and the journalistic integrity of 0prah.
I'll never forget Larry letting Goerge Stephanopolous get through with a telephone ambush of George HW Bush in 92.
BS. And he was even worse on his radio show. He bullied his callers constantly.
Howard Stern did a hilarious impersonation of him on his (Stern’s) TV show 20 years ago.
why the HELL would hannity offer his best to larry king? Seriously? Why not just let him ride off into the sunset. Just because larry was retiring doesn’t mean everyone in the world is sad or cares.
Nice to know it ain't just me...
All three of them are dead as far as concerned.
Hannity, O’Really and Beck are un-watchable and in the same league.
Thank God for Rush and Levine.
Who’s Larry King?
Oh, the geezer with the glasses and suspenders.
Why would anyone want to listen to the dumbest geezer on CNN?
“why the HELL would hannity offer his best to larry king?”
The entertainment biz’s version of being PC. It’s pervasive.
“In short, he has the nads of gender bending female, and the journalistic integrity of 0prah.”
The ideal “interviewer” for the era when the LSM had no competition.
