The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Rachel Maddow Squashes The Comcast Fired Olbermann Conspiracy TheoryPoliticususa
    Maddow made it clear that Keith and MSNBC decided to end the show and Comcast had nothing to do with it...

    Without mentioning them by name, Maddow also addressed the rumors that Comcast forced Olbermann out and is going to move MSNBC to the right, “We are all sorry that Keith and MSNBC decided to end his run here...

    Olbermann and MSNBC parted ways because of the problems between Keith and Phil Griffin. It is that simple. The whole notion that Comcast is going to come in and change MSNBC to fit ownership’s political ideology was another bit of dark fantasy.
    And there you have it. The truth, from Maddow herself. Of course, she's just a shill for the vast right wing conspiracy led by MSNBC... right Hay?

    I'm not sure why you think he was a 2nd rate student, unless you are privy to his transcript. He is a graduate of an Ivy league school. If you think Keith lacks the academic background to do what he does, than surely you must Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh far less qualified to do what they do as each is either a college drop-out or never attended. I don't know about you, but that sure tells me a whole lot.

    So you must think a night of watching or listening to Peter Gammons, Bob Costas, Al Michaels, Jim Rome.... (insert most of your favorite sports analysts and play-by-play men here) funnier than a night at the Improv?

    are you calling Rachael Maddow a liar? The other liberals will have your badge for that!

    The "you have no clue why he was fired...." is not my quote.... it comes from TurtleDude. You grabbed my post before I was able to edit it out. Hopefully the "Board" will overlook the sloppiness of my post and allow me to retain my badge.
