    Current TV Dismisses Keith Olbermann

    Current TV Dismisses Keith Olbermann - NYTimes.com

    Mr. Olbermann did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Current indicated that he had failed to honor the terms of his five-year, $50 million contract, giving the channel the right to terminate it.

    In the letter, the channel’s founders, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, wrote: “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before. 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.”

    Mr. Olbermann will not be given an opportunity to sign off.
    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

    This guy used to be the left's Rush Limbaugh. He could do no wrong. To get fired from Current TV is beyond hysterically funny.

    It's been brewing for a while. I'm a little surprised it hadn't happened well before now.

    As long as he does not go anywhere near any sports related programs, I am happy.
