    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    March 30, 2012
    It's Happened Again! Olbermann Fired by Current TV!

    Bathtub Boy

    And he's being replaced by a corrupt ex-politician. Would it be nasty to say that's a step up for Current? Details here.

    From Keach Hagey:
    Source familiar says Olbermann was fired for failing to show up to work ,"sabotaging the network" and attacking Current execs.

    Here is Oralmann's response:

    • I'd like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.
    • Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.
    • It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently. To understand Mr. Hyatt's "values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty," I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee's name was Clarence B. Cain. http://nyti.ms/HueZsa
    • In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it.

    HA!! couldn't happen to a better guy...so where to now KO?..you have burn every bridge you have come from.....maybe for fun FOX should hire him...put him on a show where he's confronted by all the people he's slimed in his "career".

    Keith Olbermann, well could he go on his knees and maybe kiss the arse of Roger Ailes for a job..(never gonna happen)
    or he could join MLB Network and go back to being a sports personality


    Current had no choice he was litterally killing the channel!

    Somewhere in Texas Glenn Beck is LAUGHING

    Poor Keith. He couldn't even work at an openly progressive channel without teeing them off. In his mere nine months at Current TV, his presence was unable to sway Cablevision into picking up the channel. In this case, I'm glad they didn't. But for NFL Network and the Cooking Channel, I'm not.

    Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

    Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

    So this time, since he DID NOT honor his contract, The False Murrow WAS FIRED FOR CAUSE.

    This douchebag is so toxic that nobody would touch him with a 50 foot pole (except for Wussy the Pussy's idol at the Daily Kos).

    The False Murrow's TWITter page is peppered with a whole bunch of apologies but NO apologies have been given to all of the people he smeared, defamed and slandered over the years. This dude should just go crawl into a hole somewhere and hopefully we never hear from this cretin again.

    uh...some questions (and someone with more knowledge of the biz and his contract could also shed lite on)

    When he signed his contract, and it was announced, (if memory serves me correctly) didnt he get a minority stake IN current TV ???

    could he POSSIBLY announce his intent to BUY a MAJORITY stake in Current ??


    Just Askin'

    Quite shocked really. I knew it would happen but I didn't know it would come this soon.

    I can't wait for MKDAWUSS to get here and give "you all" a lecture on how Keith's "not done yet" and how Keith speaks "truth to power" and how he'll "turn up somewhere else" and how he has a "fanbase that will follow him anywhere" and blah blah blah.

    Chew on this MKDAWUSS: This guy was given FREE-FUCKING-REIGN to do whatever he wanted and he STILL screwed it up.

    He couldn't even get through the first year. PATHETIC.

    Tell us MKDAWUSS, what's worse? Keith getting fired or your mommy not being around?

    "When he signed his contract, and it was announced, (if memory serves me correctly) didnt he get a minority stake IN current TV ???

    could he POSSIBLY announce his intent to BUY a MAJORITY stake in Current ??"

    His contract was terminated for cause. He didn't abide by his contract so he was TERMINATED. That is like if your boss tells you to do something and you tell him F-YOU I'M NOT DOING IT, he can terminate you right on the spot and the hell with the rest of your salary.

    That was fast.

    "When he signed his contract, and it was announced, (if memory serves me correctly) didnt he get a minority stake IN current TV ???

    Adios, FatAss! Another day, another failed stint at a network. I hope you get the help you desperately need for your obsessive-compulsive and destructive behavior.

    Man on Fan gets Canned.

    Now, I'm sure MKDAWUSS will come in with a full bullshit excuses but let's stick with one of the things MKDAWUSS is bound to talk about:

    Where's he gonna go?

    Here's a list. Feel free to add along with explanations:

    Current TV: Nope. Just got fired. And just so we're clear, the termination of your contract means you got fired.

    NBC/MSNBC: Fired. Twice. And last I checked MSNBC primetime is going just as good as it was without him.

    CBS: Still trying to get the stench of Katie and Dan off their back. And they have one quality show on after another, so no need for a Rock Center type of show.

    ABC: Again, quality shows mean you don't need to put crap like Rock Center on to fill the holes.

    CNN/HLN: Despite one setback after another these channels have never shown desperation. Don't see it happening.

    ESPN: Hey, there's an idea...wait, no, fired from there too.

    Fox Sports: I like that one too...huh? He got fired from Fox Sports as well? Damn!

    Fox News: When pigs fly. Absolutely no reason to take him on.

    Of course the man could go into business for himself but there's two reason why he won't:

    1. He has no balls, which is why in the past he cites how Glenn Beck has "failed" in his own venture.

    2. When his loser fanbase finds out they have to pay $10/month to listen to his special comments you'll see how "loyal" they are.

    Thanks for answering the questions , was just wondering .. as for where he winds up...

    I agree MSNBC wont take him back , fool me once shame on me, fool me twice SHAME ON YOU

    HLN: they do need someone to replace the departed Joy Boo--uh Behar id say maybe,if TimeWarner was VERY desperate!

    PBS: Uhhhh..Hell to the No !

    his own channel on the net: again..HELLLL to the NO!

    hmmm..only way he'd be back on TV is on a network SOOO desperate not only for ratings , but for press in general ...hmmm what channel could that be ..hmmmmm
    I GOT IT !!!! BLOOMBERG!


    Or he could go to MLB Network and try to revive his sports career

    "Where's he gonna go?"

    MMFA? Think Progress? Center for American Progress? Kos?

    "MMFA? Think Progress? Center for American Progress? Kos?"

    I mean as far as television goes where's he gonna go.

    I'm sure he'll continue to blog at Kos but Media Matters? What would he do there except make things worse?

    Al Jazerra ????
    France 24 ????
    or...oh I dont even think even THEY could go for keith ..

    BBC WORLD NEWS??

    Olbermann's statement (with commentary):

    "I'd like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV."

    Say that again. CURRENT'S failure, not his.

    Never your fault, is it Keith.

    No, it's CURRENT'S fault you're an asshole.

    It's CURRENT'S fault you couldn't get any ratings.

    It's CURRENT'S fault James O'Keefe sued Shuster's ass, your ass and their ass for defamation.

    That makes sense.

    "Editorially, Countdown had never been better."

    Waitaminute. Current is a "failure" but Countdown isn't?

    "But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff."

    I'm sorry, was I living under a rock for the past three months?

    Because I could've sworn it was OLBERMANN who bolted on the early January primary coverage?

    Exactly how is that keeping your issues "internal" and "keeping the show alive" for his viewers?

    "Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract."

    HA! Listen, I'm no economist, nor am I a legal expert, but I'm willing to bet two things:

    1. Olbermann has damn good lawyers that probably made that contract iron clad.

    2. There's no good economical scenario where you dump a guy with a $50 million contract after nine months.

    "It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently."

    "...values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers..."

    Keith has a proven track record of providing the following:

    -Zero respect for anyone

    -Hiding facts that are inconvenient

    -Pissing people off

    -Treating his fans like shit when they challenge him

    Sounds like Gore and Hyatt learned this the hard way.

    "To understand Mr. Hyatt's 'values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty,' I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee's name was Clarence B. Cain."

    I encourage everyone to recall that this is the FIFTH TIME in approximately 15 YEARS Olbermann has been asked to leave his job.

    But Hyatt canning one guy unjustly (and it was) in 35 years is apparently a pattern.

    "In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it."

    Once again, none of this is Keith Olbermann's fault. What a joke.

    "Al Jazerra ????
    France 24 ????
    or...oh I dont even think even THEY could go for keith ..

    BBC WORLD NEWS??"

    I forgot. Al-Qaeda loves him. He's been helping them out for years, maybe he can get paid for it now.

    "What would he do there except make things worse?"

    Sure. Problems for MMFA? Bring it on. This is the equivalent of hiring Wade Phillips as your head football coach. The divorce is ALWAYS messy.

    Wonder if Robin is on the unemployment line as well?

    And I just heard that Client #9 is replacing Olby!!!

    Not a good week for Gore. First he gets punched by Spiderman http://www.newsarama.com/php/multimedia/album_view.php?gid=4151&page=7 , then he's going to be sued by Olbermann.

    Best part, someone is going to lose. Worst part, someone is going to win.

    "Sure. Problems for MMFA? Bring it on. This is the equivalent of hiring Wade Phillips as your head football coach. The divorce is ALWAYS messy."

    While it would be hilarious, you said it yourself, the man is toxic.

    Besides, these guys live off their Soros donations and tax-emept status. They can't afford what Olbermann thinks he's worth.

    Thing is, seeing how far Journalistic integrity has fallen at MSNBC (due to allowing Al (resist we much) Sharpton to hold that circus in the Trayvon Martin shooting) that Phil will give him his job back?

    "Best part, someone is going to lose. Worst part, someone is going to win."

    I'm rooting for Gore.

    I would like to see what Olbermann is gonna mention in the lawsuit.

    Clarence Cain was fired because he had AIDS. This just appears to be another case of Olbermann being an asshole.

    Hard to believe that all this time, after all these years, Al Gore is exposed as a right wing Republican operative. Sue the hell out of him Keith, go for it! What I find most amazing is that he wasn't fired for his statements, but for being lazy. He just wouldn't show up for work. Other than an obsure internet website he will end up on, his television career is done. He's finished.

    "Thing is, seeing how far Journalistic integrity has fallen at MSNBC (due to allowing Al (resist we much) Sharpton to hold that circus in the Trayvon Martin shooting) that Phil will give him his job back?"

    Why? Since he left there hasn't been a dramatic change in MSNBC's ratings.

    What does that tell you?

    "In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it."

    Weren't we all told by elitist DemoCRAPS that Al Gore was one of THE SMARTEST PEOPLE in the world? If he is so smart than how the hell could he be so dumb to hire this schmuck in the first place? Didn't he know his history of epic meltdowns and burned bridges? How could he give this guy a $50 million dollar contract if his "exit" from M.S.S.R. (M-BS-NBC) was so messy?

    What's even funnier (I think) is that The False Murrow's replacement for this trainwreck network is a former NY Governor (D) who bangs pricey hookers while still wearing his black dress socks.

    This article is funny:
    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2012/03/keith-olbermanns-lawyer-vows-bad-result-for-al-gores-current.html

    "Olbermann accused Gore and Current co-founder Joel Hyatt of a cynical money-saving move. "For more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff," Olbermann tweeted. "Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract."

    It is hard to invest in a quality news program when the lead stooge is in his bathtub when things go south.

    I'd love to hear some of the evidence that Current would need to present to defend its case.

    Honestly, the best thing Olbermann can do to win this lawsuit is have that lawyer of his go before a judge and say "Listen, this guy's was fired four times before he landed this job. And he has a proven track record of being an asshole. Messers Gore and Hyatt knew this and still hired him."

    I believe this worked for Charlie Sheen.

    Current should just settle and move on.

    Gibby, I hope you are laughing at Ubergoober Bathtub Boy. I can't wait to hear your show on Monday.

    I think Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, and Michelle Bachmann all have big grins on their faces right now. Lol.

    "It goes almost without saying..."

    IT GOES (job after job after job)

    ALMOST WITHOUT SAYING (If KO had gone without saying all the stuff he said to his bosses, about his bosses, behind his bosses back, perhaps his jobs wouldn't have gone, one after another after another after another.)

    They chose an interesting time to do this if it's true.

    All of the followers of this website knew this termination would happen. What does that tell you about ManBearPig's judgment? Should his "faith" in the reliability of others (*cough* global warming grant-winning scientists *cough*) be called into question as well?

    Olbermann is done as far as TV politics go.

    My bet is that he will be on MLB by the start of the 2013 season. He will NOT have his own show, but he will share a desk with the likes of Eric Byrnes, Al Leiter, and Harold Reynolds. Don't expect Costas or Gammons to cozy up to him, but if maintained on a very tight leash, he might be able to maintain the uppity spirit of the late-night coverage. The question will be whether or not he can cut out the snark and cruelty....Hence, the "very tight leash".

    You've heard it here first.

    I'd like to see him on Celebrity Apprentice next.

    Another sad victim of the 0bama administration....

    What's that Wuss? "If it's true"? Olbermann himself issued a statement you idiot.

    "What's that Wuss? "If it's true"? Olbermann himself issued a statement you idiot."

    Check your calendar.

    "They chose an interesting time to do this if it's true."

    MKDAWUSS, in my travels over the Internet you are without question the most pathetic individual I have ever come across.

    You honestly believe this is an April Fool's joke?

    People, I have been saying for some time now that MKDAWUSS cannot compute negative comments about Olbermann in his brain.

    Is there any doubt now?

    Seriously MKDAWUSS, are you in such denial over this that you had to move April Fool's Day up two days to make an excuse for it?

    Again, five times in 15 years this man has been fired. Deny it all you want, call it a prank or whatever you need to do to live in CandyLand but the facts are the facts.

    Well, for those of us who live in reality the facts are the facts. To you, this is all a joke.

    Here's MKDAWUSS' other problem, which is being an illiterate moron that doesn't do a shred of homework before opening his mouth.

    Nevertheless, I think "you all" should indulge Carlos for a minute here. Let's look at how "funny" this situation is:

    -Current issues a statement saying "We have values we want to stand for and Keith doesn't fit that mold anymore."

    APRIL FOOL'S!

    -Olbermann writes a letter that starts off by saying "This is all Current's fault."

    APRIL FOOL'S!

    -Olbermann then brings up a case referring to a wrongfully terminated lawyer with AIDS from 20 years ago to somehow prove Joel Hyatt has a track record of being a scumbag.

    APRIL FOOL'S!

    -According to Current they fired Olbermann because of "repeated unauthorized absences," “sabotaging the network” and “attacking Current and its executives.”

    APRIL FOOL'S!

    -And last but not least, because he breached his contract Olbermann's not getting his $50 million and now he's suing.

    APRIL FOOL'S!

    The only joke here is Current thinks Elliot Spitzer is gonna solve their problems.

    What's not a joke is MKDAWUSS thinking this is all a prank when, if he had taken 10 minutes to research any of this, it's blatantly obvious that, if you remove "you all's" opinion of Olbermann, not a lick of this is funny.

    Tonyome's right. You're an idiot.

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/03/31/keith-olbermann-current-tv-fired/

    Some new details on how crappy the Current TV operation is run. It's like a Chinese fire drill.

    In reply to tonyome, in the words of the Great One, Low Blow KO, "It goes almost without saying....."

    :>)

    "Some new details on how crappy the Current TV operation is run. It's like a Chinese fire drill."

    Didn't you hear syvyn? This is all some practical joke in honor of April Fool's Day.

    "If it's true." What a joke MKDAWUSS is. You're either dumber than soap, extremely delusional or just a textbook Internet troll.

    Whatever the case may be, none of these traits are admirable.

    No aprils fools joke MKDAWUSS, he is done! kaput! finished! didnt let the door hit him where the good lord split him!, 86'd!, given the gate!, was given the ziggy!, got the hook!, got the thumb!, was ejected,rejected and DEEEE-JECTED!!! pushing up daisies!!, looking up from down under! 6 feet under and 3 feet across! shown the door!, tossed in the garbage truck! Keith...IS A DEAD PARROT!!


    "People, I have been saying for some time now that MKDAWUSS cannot compute negative comments about Olbermann in his brain."

    And for some time now I have been trying to recall the proper terminology for this condition and at last I have: Confirmation Bias.

    It applies to MKDAWUSS perfectly.

    Olbermann's gonna be on Letterman Tuesday night. That'll help his pending lawsuit (rolls eyes).

    "And for some time now I have been trying to recall the proper terminology for this condition and at last I have: Confirmation Bias.

    It applies to MKDAWUSS perfectly."

    That would explain his poor decision making, delusions and general stupidity.

    "If it's true." I read that 12 hours ago and I'm still in shock. Yeah, it's all a hoax. Which is why Olbermann sent one below the belt yesterday with that Clarence Cain reference. F****** hilarious.

    That's where confirmation bias comes in. Joel Hyatt wrongfully fires one guy and according to Olbermann, which now means according to MKDAWUSS, it's a pattern.

    But Olbermann gets fired five times in 15 years it's all a misunderstanding. Or an April Fool's joke.

    You know what? Why am I even talking about Clarence Cain. Like MKDAWUSS read ANY of that stuff.

    In all honesty, I pity MKDAWUSS. What s***** ass life do you have to lead where you idolize a guy who's mean, disrespectful, nasty, insubordinate, sexist and can't hold down a job?

    Olberdork will probably demand that Letterman give him his show. And if Letterman refuses, he'll label him a rapist, then say how Letterman is obsessed with him.

    I still think it is hilarious that the issue it comes down to is that the guy was just lazy - he didn't feel like going to work, so he didn't go. He used his dead father as an excuse at MSNBC, even when he went to Yankees games after calling out of work, but there were no excuses left at Current.

    By the way, tonight Current was showing a movie, "Batman Returns". How appropriate.

    "In all honesty, I pity MKDAWUSS. What s***** ass life do you have to lead where you idolize a guy who's mean, disrespectful, nasty, insubordinate, sexist and can't hold down a job?"

    I have no pity for WUSSY THE PUSSY or that reject friend of his, the degenerate djthejackass. They are losers; the scum of the earth. Just like all progressives / marxists / socialists / democRATS, they represent the WORST of humanity. Even some of the democrats I know on Facebook have now distanced themselves from that 3 ring circus known as OWS. If by chance The False Murrow wins his absolutely baseless and pathetic lawsuit, it would be HIGHLY hypocritical if he DID NOT DONATE THAT $$$ TO OWS because he cares so much about it.

    "Olberdork will probably demand that Letterman give him his show. And if Letterman refuses, he'll label him a rapist, then say how Letterman is obsessed with him."

    That's the attitude that will probably prevent him from getting a job with a company like CBS Sports or another sports network trying to carve out a place in the market.

    But again, the last thing I want to do when I'm planning on suing is go on any show and talk about it, let alone a variety show.

    "I still think it is hilarious that the issue it comes down to is that the guy was just lazy - he didn't feel like going to work, so he didn't go. He used his dead father as an excuse at MSNBC, even when he went to Yankees games after calling out of work, but there were no excuses left at Current."

    That won't help you get a job either. But I'm sure MKDAWUSS has an excuse for Olbermann not showing up for what amounts to a month's work this year alone.

    "I have no pity for WUSSY THE PUSSY or that reject friend of his, the degenerate djthejackass..."

    Oh, I'm not crying over the circumstances of their lives, I just feel bad that those circumstances lead them to worship cable news pundits.

    I was saddened by Breitbart's death but it didn't wreck my life. Same thing with O'Reilly. I'd feel bad but then I'd wonder what else is on at 8.

    If Olbermann died tomorrow MKDAWUSS and some of his Kos friends my question their reasons for living.

    So on Weekdays, Current shows news shows. On the weekends, they show movies? This is why current will fail. It doesn't know what to be. Either a more left version of MSNBC or a Entertainment Channel.

    Oh, here's a Mediaite column about Olby's firing.

    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/keith-olbermann-complained-to-current-that-car-service-drivers-smelled-talked-to-him/

    DRIVERS TALKED TO HIM? Now, I can sort of understand that. Using paratranist to get to and from dialysis, the las thing I want to do after four hours of hell is to talk to a driver. But Olby doesn't have to go through dialysis, he has to cash 250k checks every week. He can say 'hi' to a driver.

    "DRIVERS TALKED TO HIM? Now, I can sort of understand that. Using paratranist to get to and from dialysis, the las thing I want to do after four hours of hell is to talk to a driver.

    Remember last time something like this came out? It was that election coverage spat in late December/early January.

    Brian Stelter of the NYT wrote about it and MKDAWUSS labeled it a "hit piece."

    I will spare spare MKDAWUSS another bout of delusion ERRRR Confirmation Bias and remind him that Mediaite's Tommy Christopher has tried EVERYTHING to cover Keith Olbermann's ass for a while now.

    Apparently he's given up.

    And syvyn's didn't even mention the worst part. According to that story his colleagues started becoming more successful and he wouldn't promote them.

    That's probably not true either. Because Olbermann doesn't have a history of pissing on people more successful than him, right MKDAWUSS?

    MKDAWUSS FLASHBACK:

    Feb. 9, 2011:

    "what if it's a backwater network? IIRC MSNBC was pretty anonymous before KO built it into the recognizable entity that it is today."

    And now Current is worse off than when it started. Good call Carlos.

    The argument continued:

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2011/02/keith_olbermann_124.php#comments

    It was pretty one sided considering everything I said turned out to be true and because MKDAWUSS is a dope.

    MKDAWUSS FLASHBACK:

    Jan. 4, 2012:

    "We don't have all the facts out regarding Olby's absence and the...

    ahh never mind, this is OlbyWatch we're talking about. Facts are tailored to suit the narrative, rather than the narrative being tailored to suit the facts."

    The narrative then was Olbermann wasn't showing up for work because he wasn't getting what he wanted.

    The facts then were Olbermann wasn't showing up for work because he wasn't getting what he wanted.

    The facts and the narrative today are Olbermann was fired for not showing up to work because he wasn't getting what he wanted.

    MKDAWUSS, does it bother you that everytime "you all" tailor facts to suit the narrative (allegedly) it turns out to be true?

    MKDAWUSS FLASHBACK:

    Jan. 5, 2012:

    "And the witch hunt begins even though all the facts haven't surfaced yet. I mean, let's go ahead and take things out of context and jump to conclusions even though we don't know the whole story yet. In fact, we can make up the parts of the story we don't know and that will suffice."

    Apparently the story "you all" made up (allegedly) turned out to be the same story you wish was an April Fool's prank.

    You got your wish Carlos. The facts are out now. Where's your f****** zeal now?

    Or is this just like the O'Keefe lawsuit where your still waiting for the facts YOU WANT TO HEAR to come out?

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/04/01/keith-olbermann-s-angry-e-mail-trail-traces-breakup-with-current-tv.html

    Current sounds like a dump.

    So naturally, that means, because you work in a dump, you stop doing your work.

    No work, no promotion, no letting others play in "your studio." That's probably more of the "class" and "professionalism" MKDAWUSS continues to talk about Olbermann having.

    MKDAWUSS, spare "you all" the sob stories about how "Keith can't do Countdown in a studio that doesn't work." If he was half the man you claim he is Olbermann wouldn't need his own personal studio to "ask the questions regardless of who's being asked."

    I found this Daily Beast quote particularly hilarious: "If people cannot trust him to correctly identify the programming, his credibility on larger matters comes into question.”

    Hey Olberdork, did you hear? Sarah Palin will be co-hosting the Today show this week. And you don't even have a show. And her ratings will be about 20 times what you got on average. Bwahahahahaha!
