Sanity Wins!… Crazy Keith Olbermann Is Out at MSNBC – Effective Immediately (Video)
Far left crackpot Keith Olbermann announced tonight that he is leaving “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” on MSNBC. Lawrence O’Donnell will move his show to the 8 PM slot. The Ed Show will move to 10 PM.
Good-bye, far left nutjob…
Here’s Keith’s sign-off from tonight’s show.
The New York Times reported:
Keith Olbermann, the highest-rated host on MSNBC, announced abruptly on the air Friday night that he is leaving “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” immediately.
The host, who has had a stormy relationship with the management of the network for some time, especially since he was suspended for two days last November, came to an agreement with NBC’s corporate management late this week to settle his contract and step down.
In a closing statement on his show, Mr. Olbermann said simply that it would be the last edition of the program. He offered no explanation other than on occasion, the show had become too much for him.
Mr. Olbermann thanked his viewers for their enthusiastic support of a show that had “gradually established its position as anti-establishment.”
It was probably that unhinged piece he ran earlier in the week that did him in.
Here’s the official statement from NBC Universal.
