If this is true, then I wonder how much Comcast’s takeover of NBC had to do with it.

“MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.” If he made it sch a success why is he out? if this is true he should bring back his Worst person in the World and insert his name being his last day and all

Lefties are hoping that MSNBC will give Olbermann's slot to Ed Schultz.

Oh, pretty please.

It might be just bureaucratic fallout after his exposure as a Democrat Party contributor in violation of MSNBC policy last November.

AP, Chicago Tribune and Boston Herald are all reporting it. Although his ratings were not good, it was still MSNBCs highest rated show. I can't imagine them killing their highest rated show unless they are looking to go a different direction.

Exactly...Olbermann drew a million viewers nightly; more than any other show on the network. They either had it in for Olbermann, or there is a housecleaning coming...
