Keith Olbermann’s full statement in response to the termination of his contract by Current TV:


‘I’d like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.
Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.


It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently. To understand Mr. Hyatt’s “values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty,” I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee’s name was Clarence B. Cain.’

From the threads and posts I've been reading it looks like a lot of the DUers are admiting KO is an ass and the "problem" is himself.

NEW YORK (AP) - Current TV says it has ejected Keith Olbermann from its talk-show lineup after less than a year.

The network announced late Friday afternoon that "Countdown," the show Olbermann has hosted since last June, was to be replaced with a show hosted by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, beginning Friday night.


HAHAHA (http://www.komonews.com/news/entertainment/Current-TV-ousts-talk-show-host-Keith-Olbermann--145233015.html)

And in other news, the half dozen or so viewers that Olbermann had were last seen jumping off the highest bridge..... :biggrin-new:

This is Al Gore doing his bit for global warming by reducing his carbon footprint by the amount of CO2 Olberdork puts out with his mindless ranting and raving.

Is this Keith's way of saying he has AIDS?

New twist.

Olbermann sues Current TV.

Current TV sues Olbermann.



(LA Times) (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2012/04/keith-olbermann-arrogant-and-immature-current-filing-says.html) — Al Gore’s Current TV is blasting back at fired host Keith Olbermann.


In a court filing Friday, the network attacked the liberal opinion-maker as “arrogant” and “immature” and said that he had failed to show up for nearly half of his recent workdays. The papers were a response to Olbermann’s $70-million breach-of-contract lawsuit filed Thursday against Current, which hired him as its star last year but dismissed him in late March after months of turmoil.


Current said it doesn’t have to “pay a dime” to Olbermann, “who, having already been paid handsomely for showing up sporadically and utterly failing to keep his end of the bargain, now seeks to be paid tens of millions more for not working at all.” The papers also point out that Olbermann told David Letterman, “I screwed up” at Current during a TV appearance this week.


The network, founded by the former vice president with legal entrepreneur Joel Hyatt, accuses Olbermann of leaking his $10-million salary to the media to help justify his decision to join Current, which has roughly 68 million subscribers but very low ratings. In “utter disregard” of his contract, the host rejected every idea to promote his program, the papers say, and even banned his staff at “Countdown” from speaking with the executive vice president of communications.


“[H]e arrogantly and falsely calls ‘cheap’ the company that has paid him the highest compensation he had ever received in his career, provided him the largest staff of any program he had ever anchored, given him the largest studio and custom-designed set on which he had ever worked, and paid over $50,000 in an eight-month period to eight different limousine companies because none of the previous seven were able to meet his patrician standards for how to drive him around New York City,” the papers say.
