Keith Olbermann: Fired By Current TV!

by at . Comments

Keith Olbermann has just been fired by the cable network that took him in after the much higher-profile cable network he was previously on cut him loose.

Current TV, which was co-founded by Al Gore, released a statement saying it was parting ways with the pundit, surprisingly citing a difference in values.

The decision comes less than a year after Keith Olbermann was fired by MSNBC, then hired by Current to help energize the network’s primetime ratings.


Current said in a statement this afternoon:

"We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet."

"We are more committed to those goals today than ever before."

"Current was founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it."

Current also announced today that it will be giving former New York Governor and CNN personality Eliot Spitzer a show in the network’s 8 p.m. hour.

Keith Olbermann to Debut on Current TV June 20

Countdown with Keith Olbermann is coming back to Current TV. The debut of his show on Al Gore's network is set for June 20.


I appreciate Keith Olberman and hate that he isn't on tv at the present. He's feisty, opinionated and much more to him than Eliot Spitzer. I'm finished with Current TV.


Man, I loved watching his show.


@Albert D, what in the hell does this site have to do with Obama? Clearly you didn't pay attention to the web site.


So what who cares


Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Maybe he'll just slowly fade away, but I doubt we'll all be that lucky.


Part 3 Oh, and Obama also signed a bill to kill any American citizen, anywhere in the world. They will call each person they kill a terrorist, but they will not all be terrorist; they will have known too much or someone will have a personal agenda to have them killed. You speak about communism, that is what Obama is helping to bring into being, along with the Bush family and others. What do you call it when the governor of Michigan and his ordained republican financial committee can remove officials (democrats) that the people VOTED for. That is communism, sir. And it is happening because of all of us not seeing clearly, being too comfortable. I am happy that militia groups have grown from 350 to nearly 1300 in the past 5 years, and that certain guns cannot be bought because the manufacturer cannot keep up with the backlog of orders. They may be able to defend us when those your glorify come. I say it again; there are no more conspiracies because they are all happening now.


Part 2 The first crossover are the militia groups, generally republican voters, who have joined the occupy movement in trying to fight the fight that is coming. Research, don't hurl about me, hurl about the truth of the coup of our nation. it's not yours anymore, it's the bankers. And they will send the brain washed military and police forces to kill their own, in the name of civil unrest - yes, even you. Do you think they care that you are a good little drone, they don't. You will be pillaged by those you think love you. Damn right there should be civil unrest, lest we lay quiet as lambs and be slaughtered. Hey, Obama just made it legal to be scooped up and detained indefinitely, if ? determines you are a threat to America. To protect which America, the people? or those profiting on war after war. They can detain us somewhere and no legal system can find out where we are.


to metro-gnome. I'm no communist nor socialist so already your response to me is based on falsehoods. You've been brainwashed. If you don't know world History, try researching it. I say this from a calm and pleasant place. None of us should take Liberal or Conservatives at their words. Haven't you seen the facts about which congressman and senator received huge sums from the oil companies. Their are not two parties, it's a sham, and they indoctrinate you and he other side to fight while they carry out the agenda of the Federal Reserve and the continuing plans of the Rothschild's Federal Reserve which is bankrupting every country, including America. I am the Patriot, fighting for a honest America, and you should be too. Remember the saying 'divide and conquer', that's what they've done to us, and conquered we will be if we don't wake up in larger numbers.


wat a thing


I'm glad Oberman got canned. But unfortunately like a phoenix rising from the ashes...he'll be back! I'm tired of the radical left media who takes it's marching orders from the West Wing attempting to sabotage our airways with their social spew! The corrupt upper level, albert D.? Please! Don't make me hurl! Put the socialist kool-aid down! What you little commies could do to America and are doing in part now is the most frightening thing we face at present. Oberman will get hired again only because he's a puppet mouthpiece for the liberal left. They take care of their own!
