7. You have to be kidding!

He is a liberal, after all.

I cannot see them wanting to have him on their network in the same role he had on MSNBC.
As in completely crazy, totally illogical, barking moonbat role.

Correct, FOX has no such role, it caters to normal people who still love their country.

Comcast bought NBC, my guess is with his ratings being in the crapper he thought it better to leave on his own terms than be tossed out.

26. FUCK U COMCAST! Edited on Sat Jan-22-11 04:26 AM by undergroundpanther
FUCK YOUR right wing greedy evil bullshit!!


May Sekhmet awaken and hunt Comcast the paper monster and crash the satellites with her claw..
May the greedy CEO and their propaganda be reduced to silence in the face of truth
talking to power,rendering the powerful, powerless.

May this consolidation of media,power and resources be broken and taken away from the greedy,
May the few powerful be forced to bow down to the many & exploited.
May those who exploit be crushed by the consequences of their own ruthless ambitions.
Reality intrude upon the "beautiful minds" that cause such suffering and censorship.

May the corporate pigs learn to shiver in anxiety from
the thundering voices of all the minds and hearts of
whom they want to control betray and abuse for profit!!

Sekhmet,
Lady of the Flaming Mane,
Lady of the Silent Roar Within,
Finder of the Ways,
She Who is the Flame Within the Darkness,
She Who Perseveres in Time of Struggle,
Sekhmet, who rouseth the people..

Hear me now..and send your arrows of hekau
that pierce the hearts of those
who's greed and ambition to control
is never satisfied,
the paper lie that is Comcast.

Reveal the truth,restore Maat to this land.

Note to the lurkers. He didn't resign. His contract was terminated. And not by ComCast. They don't have operational control of PMSNBC yet.



Olbermann, in the middle of a four-year $30 million contract reportedly set to last until 2012, announced that last night's edition of his prime-time "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," would be his last.

Sources said network brass basically paid the pontificating pundit to scram by working out an agreement in which he would give up his show and continue to be paid. The garrulous gasbag will likely also have to stay off the air at least until fall under the agreement. [...]

Sources said talks between MSNBC and Olbermann about his departure had been going on for weeks, but it's not clear when the final decision to boot him was made.

I think it's funny that most of them started blaming Comcast right away without any credible evidence. When your show basically consists of name calling and finger pointing, don't expect it to last very long. Get the hint, Maddow?

Oh, and let's not forget the good guys at Olbermann Watch: http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2011/01/our_work_is_don.php

Apparently the dolt has some activist fans in CT.


Liberals want Keith Olbermann to run for retiring Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman's (I-Conn.) seat.

The ploy to coax the former MSNBC host into the Democratic Senate primary was hatched by activists attending a conference in Pennsylvania over the weekend.
