Keith Olbermann has threatened to sue Current TV after the controversial host was fired from his primetime slot less than a year after he joined the network.
Former Vice President Al Gore, the co-founder of Current TV, said in a statement that the network was founded on "values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann."

Why don’t they just put a bag with five grand in it in the middle of the room and let them both enter and see who walks out with it and give them each 25 percent of the gate for watching them fight over the cash?
it’s popcorn time..
A couple of 1%ers going at it in Mudville over BIG money. LOL! You can’t make this stuff up.
What did Gore expect? Olberman had made no secret on MSNBC what he was like. I wish CBS would fire David Letterman. Letterman has really gone over the line attacking Republicans and he seems to really have it in for Tebow. Letterman made fun of Newt’s morals yet he has an illegitimate son and faced sexual harassment charges.
One of the comments to the story about this over at
>>Weren’t we all told by elitist DemoCRAPS that Al Gore was one of THE SMARTEST PEOPLE in the world? If he is so smart than how the hell could he be so dumb to hire this schmuck in the first place? Didn’t he know his history of epic meltdowns and burned bridges? How could he give this guy a $50 million dollar contract if his “exit” from M.S.S.R. (M-BS-NBC) was so messy? What’s even funnier (I think) is that The False Murrow’s replacement for this trainwreck network is a former NY Governor (D) who bangs pricey hookers while still wearing his black dress socks.
Now we get to read about Olbermann whining and crying for the next few months. he is the biggest baby on the airwaves
Tina Turner can be the referee - “Two men enter! One man leaves!”
this idiot is not worth talking about. He is gas in the wind.
Hope they buy big new purses and beat the hell out of each other with them. Hope they post the videos on Youtube.
Why hasn’t Adolf weighed in on this yet?
You realize that’s only 6 minutes pay for him?
His viewership has slipped from 106000 to 46000.
Bill O’Reilly’s at 2800000.
Here is a pretty good representation of what would happen:
