    Yet another enemy made by the biggest puke bucket in political commentary industry today.

    You have to really be an ass to get fired by MSNBC and Current TV. LOL
    How fragile does your ego have to be to find this much satisfaction in this? Jesus why do you care this passionately to tear everything down about a guy?

    If you were ever guess about how someone could follow Kim Kardashman for example, how they watch every little move they make, and have opinions about of it, when its obviously completely pointless and insane, just look at partisans for a parallel.

    Re: Keith Olbermann Fired Again!

    I think one thing with both sides can agree on is that Keith Olbermann is a clown of epic proportions.

    Another Liberal media outlet lets Olbermann go. Tsk, tsk

    Current TV fires Olbermann, hires Eliot Spitzer instead

    "Holding down a job these days seems to be a job in itself if you're Keith Olbermann. The lead anchor of Current TV was fired on Friday, just a year after being hired, following his getting canned from MSNBC. He will be replaced by Eliot Spitzer, who got the boot from CNN last July. The reasons for Olbermann's firing aren't completely clear, but Current TV released a letter to viewers saying, "... Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it." Oh, snap! Olbermann responded via Twitter, saying he'd be taking legal action against Current for their "untrue" statements.
    "
    So this is where my original thread should have gone. Live and learn.

    Don't watch Fox that often, unless local. Don't know if it was "validation" for me, it was more a different opinion than the others. Always good to hearall positions on issues, don't you think?

    Okay, I accept your opinion. But it won't change my opinion on the issue.

    I can certainly sympathize - Olberman is the king prima Donna douche and has turned into his own creation "The worst person in the world". That garners at least some gloating and jeering from the portion of the public who recognize it and would like to acknowledge it.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He did his job, didn't he. He didn't use his position to further a political agenda. That's the problem with idealogues who think they're journalists.

    People would actually have to listen to him for that to be true.
