He won't be missed.
Keith Olbermann has just ended his Friday night episode of Countdown–and apparently ended his run as host of the show on MSNBC. The host thanked his Countdown staff and team at MSNBC, read a poem and bid viewers farewell, tossing his papers toward the camera for the “final time,” and saying “Good night, and good luck.”Perhaps this will help with the new age of civility. One less hate-filled maniac polluting the airwaves.
MSNBC released a statement moments ago reading, in full:
“MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract. The last broadcast of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will be this evening. MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”
The lunatics at the House of Hate are besides themselves. The loons commenting at the Huffington Post are already blustering about canceling cable. Conspiracy kooks are frothing.
These people have really empty lives.
More here, with rather amusing comments. Here's a gem:
They have GOT to be kidding! Olbermann IS MSNBC!!!! This will NOT stand! Keith has MILLIONS of loyal viewers who would not miss a minute of his program. MSNBC is asking for TROUBLE! There will be PROTESTS! There will be a BOYCOTT! This is OUTRAGEOUS!!!!Asking for trouble? Why, that sounds like hateful, incendiary rhetoric.
Judging by comments on the lefty sites, Comcast is already more more evil than Halliburton and Blackwater combined.
