10. Sadly, history won't repeat itself
In the first place, KO was the only real voice of the left on TV, so he had a monopoly of sorts that drew left-leaning viewers to MSNBC back then.

Now, there's Ed, Rachel, Lawrence, Chris H. on MSNBC. Even on Current, they're getting new liberal talking heads like Cenk. Keith no longer has a monopoly. Which means that, if he keeps up his prima donna nonsense, Current will kick him to the curb just as MSNBC did.

It's sad watching someone self-destruct before our eyes.
