Loon Keith Olbermann got canned today from Current TV.
Later this afternoon he released this statement on his dismissal, blasting Al Gore and Joel Hyatt in the process.

My full statement:
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. http://nyti.ms/HueZsa

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.

  3. Jay Carney’s replacement…heh

  4. Catfight!

  5. “That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it.” I’m sure the defendant lawyers will like that comment. We can only hope that both sides will exhaust their money supply. Al Gore worked really hard selling “carbon offsets” to save the planet from being destroyed by CO2. Enjoy this movie starring Keith and Al. Comedy Central!

  6. Olby is pretty well damaged goods by now.All 10 of his viewers are going to be disappointed. Karma is a beeeotch Keefy- good riddance!!

  7. This guy must be a real piece of work if even the leftists like Gore at Current have had with him.

  8. It could not have happened to a bigger jack ass. That clown is a first class douche.

    As someone above stated…. there seems to be a pattern.

    But the fact that he is bashing a liberal loon like Gore at the same time he is being fired is priceless !!!

  9. Olbermann’s long history of mental instability, overbearing arrogance, gratuitous conflict, and general douche-baggery was pretty well known at the time that Gore spent a fortune to hire him. It’s almost as if Gore is an incompetent idiot who couldn’t manage a hot dog stand, or something

  10. Face it olber-blowhard….YOU SUCK

  11. Jim ,is this a pre-April fools joke,cause if it is ….. So me and Olberdork agree on something ,Al Gore is a liar..I need to sit down,I’m feeling nauseous…
