Posted on 03/30/2012 7:47:37 PM PDT by STARWISE
Former Vice President Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, the heads of Current TV, have just fired their star anchorman, Keith Olbermann, who previously left MSNBC on bad terms. Gore and Hyatt released a statement saying that the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers . . . are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.
According to Talking Points Memo, insiders say Olbermann missed almost half his working days in January and February and insisted on taking an unauthorized vacation day the day before Super Tuesday.
Here is a statement Olbermann just issued. Id call it going ballistic, albeit in writing:

Now that made me laugh. I'm going to have to remember that. :-D
Oh the humanity.
Al Gore is THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORRRRRRRLD!
But we already knew that....
LOL love good news.
Ha! Yep, I never thought I'd say this, but I'm rooting for Keith Olbermann too. I LOVE it when leftists eat their own! I don't know why some freepers were falling over themselves to cry foul when Larry Summer when he got driven out by his fellow liberals as President of Harvard University. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Where shall we start with exposing Al Gore's ethics, Mr. Olbermann? Perhaps you could revisit your attitude on the 2000 election and Al Gore suing to throw out overseas military ballots. Rush ought to invite Olbermann on to do special "exposing Al Gore" segments. I wouldn't mind if that dirtbag liberal got paid for it as long as he spent every minute on the airwaves attacking another dirtbag liberal!
He’ll end up on ESPN... bank on it.
The left has so many freaking channels including Current and Democracy Now! and yet not one rich Conservative has lined up to launch a network? Ridiculous. I know the Right Network began about 2 years ago but mostly online and mobile and they launched with a bunch of hype too...but never went to Satellite or Cable.

Heck i think GBTV gets more viewers than both current and Dem now combined!
Rosie O'Donnell, failed comedian, twice failed hosting a TV show. Both, far left dingbats.
Rush Limbaugh, going strong, gaining sponsors, gaining new Ditto Heads. LOL Life is good.
It took Algore many months to figure out that 0lbermann is stark raving mad. There wasn’t much to set them apart. lol
(rolling on the floor laughing my ass off gasping for breath)
It’s doomed to failure but I would love to see Current TV drain ManBearPig’s bank account down to zero.
Welcome “home” riverdog!! We (FR) will need “all hands on deck” (as FR owner Jim Robinson says) between now and Nov 6th, 2012.
Good to have you posting again!!
Oh, geez, I clicked on that. I need a shower now. A really, really hot shower with a bar of lye soap. Those people are effed up.
You wouldn’t say to heck with Hyatt if you were from Ohio. He’s a former sleazy trial lawyer who is the son-in-law of the late former Senator Howard Metzenbaum.
A funny post over at NRO:
“.......We dont yet know the details of the dispute that led to Olbermanns apparent ouster barely more than forty weeks into his five-year, $50 million contract, though the Times says Current cut him loose for failing to honor the terms of his contract. But, seriously, what kind of awful luck does he have that he keeps running into these unreasonable, unprofessional, two-timing, back-stabbing television executives? I mean, network after network after network, the same kind of low-down, no-good greedy fatcats who wouldnt know a visionary news commentator if it bit them on theass. Why cant Keith just meet one nice network head who loves him for him, who understands what a precious little snowflake he is?
One day, Olby, I dont know when, but youre gonna get to that place where you really wanna go. And youll walk in the sun. Til then, tramps like you, baby you were born to run.”
Is this a firing or the divorce?
You can only pick it up with a bent coat-hanger.
