Skip to comments.Larry King Rips Hannity, Maddow:'What They Are – Are Preachers'
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.

So what does that make Larry...a pope?
‘Rips’ Hannity and Maddow?
The last thing Larry ever ripped was his depends while trying to have sex with one of his girlfriends.
Sound to me that Larry did not want to leave.... Perhaps CNN told him to retire or get fired?
Maddow’s a dike
and I haven't watched or listened to Hannity since his leg tingles for Rudy during the 2008 primary season....heck leg tingles nothing....it was a dishonerable discharge.
Larry King is Dead
He’s right, IMO.
Then they can fall asleep in their tea cups and the bus boy can steal their credit cards.
More like a limp-wristed swipe..:oP
Larry King was a big ass liar just like Buffet. Both said in first person “I should pay more taxes.” Both meant in third person that Jim should pay more taxes. They have the ability to choose. Their choice was tyranny.
“Hes right, IMO.”
Nope! He’s mostly to the left.
King seems to have fancied himself as a journalist and an expert on the media. He is neither.
“LOL! A “crushing blow”? From Larry King?? Too funny!”
Right up there with a right cross from Montgomery Burns.
Can you imagine if Jeff Dunham came up with a Larry King Puppet to debate Walter ... LMBO at the very thought.
I’m glad to say that I managed to miss the whole Larry King thing. Other than seeing him make cameo appearances on movies, I’ve not suffered his banality.
I don’t know how they kept the embalming fluid from leaking out of his eyes for these past few years myself.
And this guy is a world class hypocrite.
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.
Hannity, OReally and Beck are un-watchable and in the same league.
Thank God for Rush and Levine
... mmmm, you haven’t even watched Beck if you think that. Rush hasn’t even put out a tenth of the hard news connections that Beck has presented on Soros alone... and Rush stays away from even criticizing Fat Ted before he died, whereas he used to have Shanlin lambasting him regularly. Beck outing the avowed Commies in O’s pack is a huge public service that the so called conservative hosts are too chikin chit to touch....
