A long list of regular contributors includes filmmaker Michael Moore, Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi; John Dean, former White House counsel to President Richard Nixon; comedian and activist Maysoon Zayid; Kate Sheppard, Mother Jones energy and investigative journalist and author Jeremy Scahill. Interspersed are such segments as "Worst Persons in the World," "Time Marches On" and Olbermann's occasional "Special Comment." The show's regular guest host is David Shuster. Written by Anonymous

great news show - I'm a devoted viewer
17 December 2004 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I watch this show pretty regularly. When I'm at home, I usually watch it from midnight to 1AM, but when I'm staying at my grandmother's house I've gotten her to watch it with me from 8 to 9PM, right after we watch her long-time staples of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

A graduate of Cornell University, Keith Olbermann comes across as smart, friendly, and witty. I also enjoy the show's regulars Monica Novotny (she and Keith seem to have a lot of affection for one another) and Alison Stewart quite a lot, and many of the regular interviewees. Alison Stewart has also done a good job guest-hosting for Keith when he's been gone on vacation.

From what I've read online on other sites, Keith wanted to avoid having a news show that regularly picks one story and covers it exclusively for the whole hour day after day, as so often happens with many "news" programs. This show is guaranteed to have at least five stories, and each of those stories in the countdown might be composed of two or more related stories.

I like that he avoids having guests that yell at each other. I also appreciate that Countdown covers some stories that other news outlets for some reason have avoided. Keith was covering the 2004 Ohio Recount before anyone else on network or cable news, I think, which are just lately playing catch-up.
