    Al Gore: Why We Fired Keith Olbermann
    By Al Gore, Joel Hyatt, Current TV
    01 April 12


    We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before.

    Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.
    (Man, you are incredibly naive if you thought KO had those values...)

    We are moving ahead by honoring Current's values. Current has a fundamental obligation to deliver news programming with a progressive perspective that our viewers can count on being available daily - especially now, during the presidential election campaign. Current exists because our audience (all 12 of them) desires the kind of perspective, insight and commentary that is not easily found elsewhere in this time of big media consolidation.

    As we move toward this summer's political conventions and the general election in the fall, Current is making significant new additions to our broadcasts. (We're even getting a "Big Boy" transmitter!!!) We have just debuted six hours of new programming each weekday with Bill Press ("Full Court Press" at 6 am ET/3 am PT) and Stephanie Miller ("Talking Liberally" at 9 am ET/6 pm PT).

    We're very excited to announce that beginning tonight, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will host "Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer," at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Eliot is a veteran public servant (AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!) and an astute observer of the issues of the day. He has important opinions and insights and he relishes the kind of constructive discourse that our viewers will appreciate this election year. (Yeah...he knows all the good hooker spots in NYC...) We are confident that our viewers will be able to count on Gov. Spitzer to deliver critical information on a daily basis.

    All of these additions to Current's lineup are aimed at achieving one simple goal - (to take your $$$ while making you "Feel" good!!!) the goal that has always been central to Current's mission: To tell stories no one else will tell, to speak truth to power, and to influence the conversation of democracy on behalf of those whose voices are too seldom heard. We, and everyone at Current, want to thank our viewers for their continued steadfast support.


    Sincerely,

    Al Gore & Joel Hyatt
    We want to save the planet and fleece our viewers!!!

    Current's Founders

    May the FORCE be with you!

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    They'll dismiss it because it was Murdoch but supposedly Murdoch fired him back in 1999 because "he's crazy" (Olbermann, that is).
    Be Not Afraid.

    He's been fired from every place he's ever worked. I don't know how they could blame Murdoch for his troubles.

    Their tiny minds will come up with a reason; even if it doesn't make sense in our reality.
