    he's not very objective.  His tone of voice often betrays his real opinions and biases for better or worse, even when he's just trying to do "straight analysis"

    I could pretty much tell how he feels about almost any topic he brings up after a few minutes or even seconds.

      Keith is more of an editorialist than a straight journalist. That doesn't make him a bad thing, anymore than it makes Bill Moyers bad. The problem is more with the network and how they position him.

        Keith mixes straight news with editorials to be sure, but even during interviews you can catch him asking leading questions favorable to the spin he wants to put on a story.

        Look I happen to agree with him, but more important I despise bias in any form and would rather journalists just try to either be objective or fully open about their beliefs.

        For example sometimes I find it easier to watch some election coverage on FOX just because I know exactly what angle they're coming from (pro GOP) and can receive the info accordingly.

          you could use that same valuation w/him. Seriously, there is absolutely no reason on this earth to watch Fox news, you'll put your eye out.
