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.

One last thing. When I look at any major network, I feel like I'm watching a Russian or Chinese newscast; the whole lot of them are told what to say and more importantly what NOT to report about. There are no more conspiracies because they are now all becoming reality. Good luck to us all.

He keeps getting hired because he defies the corrupt upper level, who are now playing out the final hand to smash us all. But Keith and I and others will be there to help you when the tanks are rolling down American Streets. Research about the Federal reserve, and the Rothschilds who started it. And the current people in power who are part of that bloodline. It has only one purpose, and Keith fights to expose it. The 2 Presidents who tried to stop the Federal Reserve where Lincoln and Kennedy; does this tell you anything? Wake up!
