I have enjoyed watching Keith on Countdown for quite awhile now. It is clear to me that he is a commentator, not a journalist. I regret that he may have technically violated a NBC News rule, but hope his wrist can be slapped and I await is quick return. I agree with Rachael’s analysis that there is not a clear equivalence between FOX and MSNBC – as conservatives often assert. The liberal message is barely getting out – and I mourn when an important voice is silenced!!!
