    As surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, it seemed inevitable that moonbat cable news personality Keith Olbermann would soon do something to sour his relationship with his current employer, obscure cable channel Current TV. After all, he still remains the same man who famously spent days in the bathroom in fits of rage rather than report for work.

    We don't know what that something was, but it appears that the former ESPN-MSNBC-Fox Sports-MSNBC anchor has managed to commit it for, as noted by New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter, Olbermann does not appear to be part of the channel's lineup to cover the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary election. Instead, viewers will be treated to performances by Current's usual stable of failed politicians and MSNBC rejects:

    Keith Olbermann, who came to Current TV this year to remake the channel and compete against his old home, MSNBC, is sitting out the biggest political nights of the season.

    Despite being the biggest star on the fledging channel, Mr. Olbermann is not scheduled to anchor Current’s coverage of the Iowa caucus or the New Hampshire primary in January. Instead, Current’s other prime time anchors, Cenk Uygur and Jennifer Granholm, will be joined by the channel’s chairman, the former vice president Al Gore, according to the channel’s TV schedule.

    Mr. Olbermann also was noticeably absent from two special reports that Current produced after Republican debates in mid-December. Those, too, were anchored by Mr. Uygur.

    These absences suggest that there may be new tension between Mr. Olbermann and the managers at Current, who are trying to create a progressive-oriented cable news channel.

    In the television industry, Mr. Olbermann is well known for fights with his bosses; stories abound about his refusal to speak to managers and executives. At Current, this behavior has continued, according to four people with knowledge of the situation, one of whom described Mr. Olbermann as “disgruntled.”

    The people spoke on condition of anonymity because speaking publicly could jeopardize their jobs. Current’s president, David Bohrman, did not respond to requests for comment on Thursday, on what is traditionally a holiday week. A spokeswoman for Current said that Mr. Bohrman was traveling and was unavailable for comment

    Kinda interesting...

    From one source, seems Olbermann is in a Twitter fight with Erick Erickson RedState.com Editor-in-Chief and a CNN Contributor. Some of the tweets.

    Erick Erickson “Congrats to or alienating his, what, third network? A lifetime of accomplishment.”

    Olbermann “You need to focus on your next fantastically moronic CNN appearance. Don’t get distracted.”

    “Clown, get a real name,”

    “Clearly there are a lot of things you don’t know. You needn’t advertise the fact.”

    “Trump is not The Donald. He is The Dick.

    Another suggest David Bohrman is not happy with Keith.

    My take, Keith shoot off his mouth again, and is throwing a tantrum again.

    Not to mention Will Pitt wouldn't like the competition for longwinded posts about nothing.

    His days are numbered!!!


    Keith Olbermann’s Days on Current Are Numbered

    In recent days, a curious drama has played out in public view between Olbermann and his bosses at Current TV. Although he’s supposed to be the network’s marquee talent, Olbermann has been M.I.A. during a number of live broadcasts from the campaign trail. Olbermann has let it be known that his absence has not been voluntary, promising viewers that he’d be back on the air for Tuesday night’s Iowa caucuses, only to have his show preempted. When Current’s management attempted to downplay the conflict by saying it had been Olbermann’s choice to take the night off, Olbermann publicly called them out, saying he was “not given a legitimate opportunity to host under acceptable conditions**.” He didn’t make it clear what that was supposed to mean.
