Keith Olbermann 'arrogant,' 'immature,' Current court filing says
LATimes ^ | 4/6/2012

Posted on 04/06/2012 3:21:46 PM PDT by South40

Al Gore's Current TV is blasting back at fired host Keith Olbermann.

((snip))

"[H]e arrogantly and falsely calls 'cheap' the company that has paid him the highest compensation he had ever received in his career, provided him the largest staff of any program he had ever anchored, given him the largest studio and custom-designed set on which he had ever worked, and paid over $50,000 in an eight-month period to eight different limousine companies because none of the previous seven were able to meet his patrician standards for how to drive him around New York City," the papers say.

This came as a surprise to those who hired him?

We all could have told them that.

I hope these lawsuits go to trial and we get to hear from the limo drivers who had to drive this puke around. One — maybe was a bad driver. Two, ok, it could happen. Three, four, five, six and seven will prove beyond any doubt that Keith Olbermann is a blathering idiot who could not be satisfied.

Neither could any of his so-called “girlfriends,” most of whom were half his age. Maybe they were too mature for him.

Let me guess, he wanted to be driven around the City in his birthday suit.

"...Current, which has roughly 68 million subscribers but very low ratings."

Shouldn't this be more like 6-8 million subscribers? 68 sounds a bit high to me.

I don’t think Glenn Beck has 68 million subscribers and his estimated revenue projections is about 40 million.

Unless some cable companies make Current mandatory in their subscriber packages, it’s probably not even 6-8 ,million.

I have a family member who once gave me grief because I watched Sean Hannity; he said Hannity was a propagandist who spewed right-wing hate. He said this even though he was a regular viewer of Olbermann's show on MSNBC.

Liberals are nothing if not hypocrites.

No, and I never met anyone who admitted to voting for Bill Clinton either.

Not intended to be a shot at you personally S40, just a general comment, so please take no offense...

I am utterly baffled as to why ‘we’ collectively maintain contact of any kind with libs. “Family” to me is what you make it, not an accident of birth.

It’s not arguable that libs are the opposite of what we believe in...in fact who we are as a people. So why make our lives harder, more stress filled and worse overall by associating with people that think we are scum?

Disassociate yourself from liberals at all levels. No ‘family’ is worth it. If they don’t like it, let THEM change their beliefs. Why is it OK for you to ‘change’ but not them?

I look at it like emboldening the enemy. Because that’s just what they are. Those kind of people created and helped to create the mess that is 2012 America. We have to stop providing them with the ‘aid and comfort’ of our ‘tolerance’.

IMO FWIW YMMV ect.

That ain’t nothing.

I spoke with a friend today I haven’t spoken with in over 10 yrs. According to him, the reason there are so many illegals is because of the selfish, wealthy CEOs needing maids and gardeners and, get this, I am brainwashed because I believe all the ‘lies’ being told about BO.

It was as if someone poured gasoline on me and lit it. We have known each other since kindergarten so I don’t think he is holding me progressing to shreiking and screaming at him against me.

That being said, I will have plenty of homemade popcorn drizzled with salt and melted butter.

Let the games begin. And since there is ‘no best man’ to win, let it be extra bloody and extra expensive. I deem the name of these lawsuits, Foreplay’.

And I agree with every word you wrote.

Let me add one thing. We are lways expected to ‘reach across the aisle’, but all the Republicans have gotten from expecting the same courtesy is some pathetic, purple lipped, insidious, ghetto thug sneering, “We won”.

No offense taken. I have limited contact with that particular family member and refuse to speak to another. My crime in that case? I asked her back in 2008 why she was going to vote for Obama, a question that she apparently found embarrassing because she could not answer. She proceeded to trash me in emails to others and does so to this day. So be it. Most in my family are sane. But just as with all families we have our share of kooks.

I have a saying on my Facebook page that they can all see. It says, "I can defend my political ideology with fact, logic and reason. If you can't defend yours, I must be an extremist."

The response to this headline is so obvious, it has already been stated in many different ways: Current TV could not determine that based on Olberman's 'performance' on MSNBC for years?

Yup. And that reaching has to stop.

This is a subject I could go on about (and have ;) for days. But in a nutshell think of these random examples..

“Family” dinners/holiday get-togethers. Often nothing but grief. Why? Because some idiot/idiots there have to perform the lib song and dance and wreck it for everyone...so theese events become points of misery rather than happy occasions.

So why go? Perhaps if we told ‘Mom” that we refused and WHY, she might skip the next invite for that person and 99% of the ‘family’ could enjoy themselves.

Workplace - Why stand at the water cooler (If you HAVE to work with libs at all) and take their BS? If a boss allows libs to run rampant or is one, is it not better for the conservative to seek other, even SELF employment ASAP?

Church - they have gotten so lib because conservatives and truly believing people turn the other cheek rather than tell them “No friggin way will you spew your crap here”. If parishoners stood for their beliefs and stopped catering to the libs around them, the ‘change’ would be spectacular.

It just tweaks my shorts that we DO have options - the option to not further embolden them through our continuing cowardace (afraid of offending friends/family).

Yet many make unsupportable justifications why “Welllllll I HAVE to get along for the sake of XXXXXX...”

No. You do not.

/rant ;)

I heard from a few of his ex’s that Keef has a very small peepee and does not know how to use it properly.

That would explain a lot.
