Olbermann's Full Statement On Dismissal From Current TV
TPM ^ | 3/30/2012 | The voices in Keith Olbermann's head

Posted on 03/30/2012 3:00:40 PM PDT by Hunton Peck

Keith Olbermann released the following statement on his termination from Current TV:

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.

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.

Wow. He appears to be under the delusion that the events of his petty little squalid life are actually a matter of some import.

What a maroon.

Olbermann has a lot of nerve criticizing a Nobel Prize winner.

Of course, if Olbermann got only 10% of what his contract called for, he's a rich man.

Since I never watched this bafoon on any network, I’ll bet he spewed a lot of venom at conservatives while defending Gore on his “global warming” BS.

Libs just can’t play well with others, especially other libs.

Don’t worry about it, Keith. Even your ratings were higher on msnbc that Al Sharpton. It may take ‘em a while, since he’s black, but there will be an opening if he keeps talking about I-Tee and Skittles.

Let’s see, this isn’t exactly the first time he has been fired by folks as politically radical as he is. The lawsuit against Gore is just about the most potentially entertaining thing in a long time.

Just about. I know of ESPN, NSNBC and now Current. There are probably more that I’ve forgotten.

When is Keith going to realize he’s to blame for his failures?

Hyatt, Metzenbaum,Olbermann, Gore, and their vermin friends like the Clintons, Durbins, Pelosis, Boxers, Feinsteins, Mikulskis; Kerrys, Bidens; Schummers, Reids, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jacksons, Obamas, etc have visited untold misery on this country, that could be regarded as political treason. God help this republic.

If he gets 10% of Gore’s wealth in the event Cap’n’Trade passes, he can hire Bill Gates to clean his toilet.

Olberman’s Job One was to build up Current TV. He failed. He was fired. Big Deal? I don’t think so. It was quite predictable.

Do all these Libs go to the same school and study the same subject where they are taught to always blame anyone and everything else for their own failures? Do any of them ever, ever, ever admit responsibility for their own actions; or breaking the law; or saying something vile, ignorant, racist or sexist; or just being stupid? Certainly whatever course they took to learn to avoid accepting the consequences of their own actions is the only course in which they must have excelled.

It’s been a great week.
First Ozero gets caught on a hot mike selling out the U.S. to the Russians, next the Supremes mercilessly humiliated his attorneys on Obamascare, then his bungling fool V.P. Biden calls a host “Dr. Pepper”, and now one of his best cheerleaders Keith (the communist) Olbermann gets corn holed by Algore.
How sweet it is.

It would be almost worth it to get him on a program to watch the lies coming from both sides in the up and coming cat fight.

But then, who the hell would watch it? That and, one would have to wear the best rubber suit to help dodge the dung being chucked back and forth.

And to think great young brave men and women have died in battle so these type SOBs can breed.

Keith, nobody watches CURRENT TV. No watchers, no income. Al gores climate fund income is cooling down. $50,000,000 is alot to pay for empty seats. In other words. Two losers can never make a winner.

Last week I caught a video clip of Keef. He is without a doubt, a raving lunatic who should be in a 'hospital' (insane asylum).

By his firing from Current it shows that he's even too Moonbat Nutz for the other raving lunatics at Current, like Moonbat #1 - Al Gore, and that's saying a lot.

As to his next job he better look at a smaller market. Like Podunck Nowhere, USA and call High School Football Games for the local 50 Watt radio station.
