    I switched to Direct TV when he moved to Current TV. I hope he return in some form or another somewhere.

    The only thing I disagree with in your Diary is the comment:

    he always brought on guests who knew what they were talking about, and he always let them talk.
    That was not Keith's style. He ran a story and then brought in one a handful of regular guests who he asked leading questions to and they answered the way Keith himself would have answered the question but it gave it more weight because he was not the one saying it. It was conducted the way an Attorney conducts a trial, in that you don't ask questions that you don't already know the answer to. It was a clever way to get out his viewpoint, while pretending to have a discussion. On the rare occasion that they didn't not answer the question the way he wanted, be became visible agitated and tired to force the "correct" response out of them.

    Occasionally on stories that were not part of the daily political commentary but involved current events, he did bring in experts and ordinary people that were part of the event and let them speak freely.
