Keith Olbermann Fired


To start with, what channel was he on? And when the viewrship has to be measured with imaginery numbers, you have to wonder what took so long. I guess he can go live with that dude who look a lot like him: Rachel Maddow!

Keith Olbermann has been fired by a cable network. Again.

Current TV released a statement saying it was parting ways with the outspoken liberal news pundit, citing a difference in values. Current also announced its giving former New York governor and CNN personality Eliot Spitzer a show in Olbermann’s 8 p.m. slot. Spitzer’s show starts tonight.

The decision comes less than a year after Current hired the former MSNBC personality as lead news anchor to help energize the cable network’s primetime ratings. Olbermann’s stint was marred by infighting, including a public spat last fall over whether he would anchor the network’s election coverage. According to the New York Times, Olbermann had a five-year $50 million deal with the network, but Current is accusing Olbermann of violating the terms of his contract.
