Skip to comments.Olbermann's Full Statement On Dismissal From Current TV
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. Hyatts 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 employees 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.
I gotta run to the store now, as I'm almost out of popcorn.
hahh!! this one sure made MY day.
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.
Get a big bucket of popcorn, this is going to be fun to watch.
Moonbat vs Moonbat death cage match.
Kinda like the “sleep with dogs you get fleas” thing.
This clown Olbermann has been fired more times than I have fingers.
Conservatives proven correct.
“It wasn’t my fault.”
“Well, it wasn’t MY fault.”
“Well, it certainly wasn’t MY fault.”
“OK, I’ll see you guys in court.”
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.
Calling out the Goron.
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.
What a great way to end a great week!!! The dems are losing on nearly every front...and it is getting worse for them!!!
There is nothing better than watching the left turn on itself and suffer horribly!
I just might buy stock (if it is available) in Orville Reddenbacker (sp?). LOL
ps. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy (all three of them). :)
Tough choice - Eco Nazi vs. Douche bag? There are no winners, only losers in this one.
Wow...2 Lefty nutcases in one week? Olberdork and Rosie Lardass?
I think it is more like "live with fleas, the dogs will avoid you".
This should be in “Breaking”!
Getting fired by Current TV is like getting cut by the 62 Mets.
HAHAHAHAHA!!! The libs eating their own!!!
AAWWWWWWW!! Well bless his heart!
Yeah so true...I immediately thought of the story about the scorpion and the frog.
the ironic part...if they put the trial on Current television, people would actually watch it.
This clown Olbermann has been fired more times than I have fingers.
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.
No winners? Oh, yes...the lawyers. And on this occasion I won’t begrudge them their very high fees!
“if Olbermann got only 10% of what his contract called for, he’s a rich man.”
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.
Oh how I love when liberals start hating on each there.I’m sure any secrets Keithy has learned while working for Current will soon be public knowledge. :)
what his contract called for?? or what he claimed he was being paid???
Oh how I love when liberals start hating on each other.I’m sure any secrets Keithy has learned while working for Current will soon be public knowledge. :)
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.
Yep I guess that proves that liberals really are the majority in this country.NOT! LOL
Didn’t he work once for one of the Networks and was let go from there also?
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.
Hee-hee! love to see a chick fight!
No disrespect to women FReepers.
Discloseure is SOOOOO gonna be fun. Imagine ALGore’s green business practices laid out for all to see ;)
I hope he gets this resolved in his favor and he gets back on cable. Both of his viewers are gonna miss him.
LOL how sad it is for Keith Overbite that even Al Gore has his standards LOL
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.
Like Muzzies and Holder’s People.
Leave ‘em to themselves and they will pick each other off one by one.
Meow. Cat fight.
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.
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.
