Keith Olbermann: I'm Suing Al Gore's A$$
tmz.com ^ | 3/30/12

Posted on 03/30/2012 4:10:02 PM PDT by Justaham

Keith Olbermann tells TMZ, he's furious with Al Gore for firing him from Current TV -- claiming, "I will be filing [a lawsuit] against them."

As we previously reported, Current just fired Olbermann from his show "Countdown" -- and Al Gore released a statement, claiming Keith was disrespectful and disloyal to viewers.

Now, Keith is firing back -- "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."

Keith also says, "The truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt [Current co-founder] will come out."

Keith adds, joining Current TV was a "foolish" mistake.

Keith suggests there had been an internal war raging between him and Gore for more than a year -- though he doesn't go into specifics.

"I'd like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.

Watching these two idiots fight couldn’t be anything but fun, but I doubt Olberman will find someone to take a case just because he’s pissed.

I’ve always thought Olbermann was bordering on a mental breakdown.

I watched him twice about 2 years ago and he made me very uncomfortable.

Olbermann is going to get stomped in any lawsuit he files against Gore and Hyatt. He is a notorious jerk and was lucky to get hired in the first place.

He likely doesn’t have a case as his job was to bring in viewers.

He didn’t live up to that end of the contract in sufficient numbers.

Sounds like gore’s cash flow has dried up since the globull warming hoax has cut off his $$$ appearances, and he needs his money to support his lifestyle and pay his electric bills, so Olberfraud’s millions are expendable!

Hissy fit! I love it when they try to eat their own, only to discover they have no means of converting their rivals into anything like digestible matter.

No matter how how you dress it up, fecal matter will never be anybody’s preferred entre.

Since liberals always punch with their thumb inside their fist, these two stalwarts of brain power will have to come up with another way to settle their differences.

Maybe he and Rosie [she’s outta work, too] can team up and start their own network that nobody watches. Then they could compete with OWN.

Some say that the legal system worked if both sides are unhappy with the decision. I’ve never agreed with that but in this case I’m conflicted.

I have to disagree - In this fight, I'm hoping that they both lose.

IIRC it was estimated at one time that Al’s fakery made him worth $1 billion, I don’t think cash flow is a personal issue with him.

“disrespectful”, yeah

but “disloyal”? What does that mean - Olberman had lunch with a Republican or Fox News exec?

This reminds me of the guy that said something about not being able to “pick up a turd from the clean end” keith olberman is a news commentator like little bill maher is a comedian and jesse, sharpton and calypso louie are reverends, give us a break.

Well, since it looks like I’m not gonna get to see an all-out, four-way shooting war between Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuala any time soon.

This fight will have to do.

That’s poetic justice if I’ve ever seen one. I’m sure Olbermann was salivating just a few weeks ago at the thought of Russ Limbaugh getting fired from talk radio- in the end it was him who got sacked. Heh heh...

Let us also not forget that Algore sits on the board of Apple. His stock holdings have been very, very good to him.
