    Keith Olbermann Casts A Wide Net In Job Search

    Source: Forbes

    Think Keith Olbermann has burned his last bridge in the television business? He doesnít think so.

    Seven months after he got dismissed by Current TV, the temperamental host is aggressively job-shopping, and heís not being too picky about it.

    In recent weeks, Olbermann has reached out to executives at a slew of different networks to communicate his desire for a new on-air role, according to people with knowledge of those conversations. Those include both cable outlets and at least one broadcast network.

    He has expressed interest in taking over as anchor of existing shows and in starting a new show. Indeed, several of the networks heís approached donít have any news programming per se on their schedules. His frustration at not having a real platform during the height of election season has been evident.

    I was wondering what happened to him.

    Kinda surprised he didn't try what Beck did and start his own pay per view site and do his own show.

    Who'd pay to see him? Olbermann needs to practice a new line: "Do you want fries with that?"

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Well, let me reverse that. How many idiots pay for $kimmer's home(s), car(s), phone(s), vacations and so forth?

    If they eagerly fork it over to a guy who rails against crony capitalism, but engages in it him self, then I could see them paying to see Olbermann rant for half an hour like an idiot.

    The dork should be a multi-millionaire but egomaniacs like him need the attention of fans.

    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I could use him as contract labor occasionally to run a weed eater if he has a green card.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
