Larry King: Maddow, Hannity Are Preachers Of Own Opinion. Larry King talked about Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity calling them self opinionated. The legendary talk show host opened up as he leaves CNN after 25 years.

King spoke about Fox News' Sean Hannity and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, both of whom had been his cable news time slot competitors during the last few years of 'Larry King Live.'

The legendary talk show host acknowledged they both used to beat him in the ratings, but said he did not regret not being more forthcoming with his own opinions, as Hannity and Maddow are.

"They're both very good at what they do" King said. "But I never learned anything while I was talking. So what they are are preachers. They're preachers of their opinion. They're telling you what they know. They're not learning. There's no learning experience from either of those programs. They're just telling you what they know."

There is no doubt that King, whose interview style at times seemed to consist of a series of grunts and nods, stayed true to the credo of "I never learned anything while I was talking" during his 25-year-run at Larry King Live.
