Great news! This guy is such a f**king piece of trash, he doesn't belong on any network. He blathers on and on talking s**t about his political enemies and has no facts or proper context in anything. He's the kind of a$$hole that should really check over his shoulder when he walks around.

Wasn't The Nation just a week or so ago blathering on about how Olbermann was going to save the network from oblivion by headline its new "anti-FOX" line-up?

Yeah... I laughed when I read it nearly as much as I'm laughing about this story.

Seems Olbermann is beginning to make a career out of getting fired from viewerless "news" organizations.

Just a total douchebag, so disrespectful all the time. Rachel Maddow is cut from the same cloth. Not interested at all in reasoned debate or showing ANY respect for anyone that doesn't toe their extreme left-wing line. F**k Olbermann.

I laughed too, especially after all the hullaballoo about Rush Limbaugh.

And now MSNBC's Joe Scarborough admits that Glenn Beck has been RIGHT about gold! You know that was difficult. But in the same article, of course they think he's still looney about seed banks. Guess MSNBC hasn't heard about the Seed Vault in Norway, just in case the worst happens.

Over the last year, Obie's career as been progressing...straight down. Good riddance.

I am amused that his replacement is "Client #9" Eliot Spitzer. I'm looking forward to a frank discussion of a topic for which he is eminently qualified to contribute: "Legalization of Prostitution"

lol...did you watch the show? Why would it be great news to you. Was it taking up a slot on CURRENT TV that you were concerned about.

I don't think you could even find Current TV on you cable lineup if asked.

By the way, the show was weak. Nothing like the current lineup on MSNBC.
