    ABC, in a stunning move, has decided to cancel its Roseanne revival following star Roseanne Barr's (racist tweet) Tuesday. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday. Early Tuesday, star, head writer and exec producer Barr attacked former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett in a since-deleted tweet in which she said "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Barr subsequently apologized: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a...
  • ‘Double standard at play’? Disney gives Roseanne the axe, but THIS ‘PIG’ still has a plum TV gig?

    As Twitchy told you, ABC Entertainment has axed the “Roseanne” reboot over Roseanne Barr’s “abhorrent, repugnant” tweet...if ABC is going to cite “abhorrent, repugnant” tweets as the basis for canceling a show or terminating talent’s employment, why did Keith Olbermann just get an expanded role at ESPN? Both ESPN and ABC fall under Disney’s umbrella, but Olbermann gets a plum job and Roseanne loses hers?

    Keith Olbermann is coming back to ESPN's airwaves. The outspoken sports and politics commentator has been granted an "expanded role" with the Disney-owned sports broadcasting giant, a Friday report from New York Post claims. "Since we started this, my sixth separate tenure with ESPN, in January, I’ve found the variety of assignments to be the most fun and energizing of all my stints,” he said in a statement on his new gig. “Adding stuff, like being a rookie 59-year-old play-by-play guy, plus the Rip Van Winkle of SportsCenter, only adds to the smorgasbord. Can’t wait, and at my age, I...

    Within hours of the horrendous Texas church shooting, Keith Olbermann called President Donald Trump a “pig” for invoking God instead of gun control. The shooting occurred Sunday morning in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where a 26-year-old man who was reportedly “an atheist” and who thought Christians were “stupid” opened fire on the congregants of First Baptist Church. The attacker killed 26 people. His violence was stopped by a good guy with a gun who “took cover behind a car” and shot at the attacker. President Trump was in Japan when the attack occurred. He tweeted: May God be w/ the people...

    Keith Olbermann, probably the only person ever fired from MSNBC for being too radical, cited former Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger and claimed that the Second Amendment doesn't guarantee people's right to own guns. He actually argued that, based in part on the amendment's "militia" language, the Framers had intended for it to be a gun-control measure. He said it was meant to limit our access to firearms, not enable it. "The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed..." He says the Framers didn't know that there would be a firearm capable of...

    Keith Olbermann's friends and family may want to check on him after a particularly troubling Twitter meltdown. The corybantic ravings and fanatical delusions displayed in his tweets are cause for alarm. His particular frantic symptoms are familiar to anyone who has read Old Yeller. Agitation, salivation, foaming at the mouth, confusion, hallucination, and extreme anxiety are sure signs of a rabies infection -- and Olbermann appears to be in the late stages. The confusion stage of the disease started with this tweet about Trump not declaring the flooding in Texas a national disaster fast enough, even though a president must...

    Keith Olbermann, the fiery pundit for whom the term "fiery pundit" was invented, says he knows how President Trump's term will end — fast. The former ESPN and MSNBC host, who now has hosts a political video series, "The Resistance," on the GQ website, connects the dots between a number of recent news reports: One from reporter John Harwood quotes a GOP strategist saying that Trump will resign once the investigation gets too close to his family, Pence will become president and appoint Marco Rubio, and that the "GOP recovers." Another, from BBC World News correspondent Paul Wood, that claims...

Now. pic.twitter.com/M5NW3JWkVw " — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) May 31, 2017 Keith Olbermann called for the "immediate arrest of Jared Kushner" in a video posted on Twitter Wednesday, saying there was ample evidence to implicate the president's son-in-law and adviser in the ongoing probes into Russian election interference. “I call for the immediate arrest of Jared Kushner. If he should not be suspected of money laundering, racketeering and influence peddling, then he should be suspected of obstruction of justice and espionage and possibly worse,” Olbermann, who has his own GQ web show, said....

    Last November, just before Election Day, GQ Special Correspondent Keith Olbermann declared James Comey’s position at the FBI “no longer tenable” and called for his firing. As recent as last month the narrative was that it was “painfully obvious” that Comey, aided by the media, cost Hillary Clinton the presidency. Like most Americans, though, Olbermann didn’t realize that Comey was operating under deep cover to expose Donald Trump’s collusion with the Russians, render the 2016 election null and void and ensure Hillary’s return to the White House. But with Comey fired … Joining David Frum and many others who don’t...

    Among the services he implores: Russia’s. Calling on the Kremlin to doxx a major American politician whose agenda might damage the country was seen as highly, highly inappropriate when it happened during the campaign. What changed? And who is this guy? He seems awfully angry. He strikes me as the sort who spent a lot of time during the Bush years lambasting the Republican “politics of fear,” yet who now behaves as though he’s transmitting from a bunker because The Regime might “disappear” him if they knew his location. He’s so febrile that you have to believe the only reason...

    Whatever happened to Keith Olbermann? Once a leading progressive voice on MSNBC, he is now doing a series of You Tube commentaries for GQ.com titled ‘The Resistance.” A not-especially-kind profile published Monday by NY Times Magazine describes the aging host’s show as a place for voicing anti-Trump conspiracy theories. According to “The Resistance,” the United States has suffered a “bloodless coup” and is “no longer a democracy”; the president is a “Manchurian candidate” who is “mentally ill” and beholden to “Russian scum”; we are witnessing the steady reduction of “the chance that we will have any future elections”; and Olbermann,...

Olbermann, who currently hosts a political web series for GQ but is best known for his work on ESPN and MSNBC, made the remark in a post on Twitter.

    Far-left host Keith Olbermann appeared on The View, Friday, to warn that while the threat of a nuclear ISIS is “theoretical,” the danger of Donald Trump becoming President is a “distinct” possibility. Olbermann wondered aloud, “Somebody said the other day...’What would happen if ISIS got nukes?.... So, I said, ‘What would happen if Donald Trump got nukes?’" Joy Behar mused, “Who would use it first?” Olbermann explained his comparison: “But also, which is the more realistic concern for us at the moment? I mean, the second one is a distinct, visible possibility and the first one is theoretical, but very...
