Olbermann To Sue Gore

Keith Olbermann to File Against Current TV

By KEACH HAGEY

Keith Olbermann's full statement in response to the termination of his contract by Current TV:

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

Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.

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.

HAHAHAHA! "Loyal viewers ..." How many of THOSE were there, Keith? The entire audience could carpool on a Vespa and have plenty of room left for groceries. And the "loyal staff" will soon be busking for quarters outside the subway station.

Gore didn’t cover your back - what a shame. Obama doesn’t cover our allie’s backs either. What is new with Democrats.

Don’t worry Olberman the President says you
punch above your weight, so you got that going
for you. Watch out for Tipper though I’ve heard
her bite is vicious.

Gore has more money for more lawyers. He’s got to be the favorite.

Where will Obermann land next—On the Oprah Network?—I say MSNBC has gone downhill after he left—he was entertaining in a loony way—unlike The Ed show that is just hate filled liberal speak with little entertainment value. I didn’t agree with what Obermann said but I did respect him—something I could never say about the other talking heads on MSNBC.

8 viewers, 16 staff.

Olbermann should have gotten lost in North Korea. He might have saved his job for a few extra days.

Those are some Dan Rather looking numbers there SJB...Fake but accurate. Truth is probably closer to a 4/8 split since I doubt all of Current TV has 16 staff total. Probably a couple guys and a Logitech webcam.

It'll never happen - you need to have some men there, first.

“How can you have a catfight with a sex poodle?”

A “CRAZED sex poodle” at that. So, Olbermann is taking this to court. Hope it makes it to the Supreme Court - crazed sex poodle has some experience there.

Why don't they take the trial to reality TV. Put it on right after one of those Kardashian nightmares.

Or, have Trump handle it: “Olbermann, you're fired....again!”

A trial? Bring it, Olbermann. It would be more exciting than your show.

Hire Joe Pesci’s character from My Cousin Vinny to handle your case. Film the trial in the south and make sure the judge questions words like "yewts" ("youths").

Hmmm...maybe you have a great idea without directly saying it...a GorOlberman reality TV show just might be a liberal TV hit show!

They could call it “The Biggest Pond Scum”.
