Do you remember Keith Olbermann? He made a name for himself at MSNBC back in the early 2000s by going on the air almost every night and calling George W. Bush a fascist.
Now he has been reduced to doing a podcast. People like him never really go away, no matter how far they fall.
Keith must be really worried about Tucker Carlson getting his hands on the J6 footage, because he is now calling for FOX News to be shut down, for national security reasons.
First, congratulations to Keith Olbermann for finding a website that will host his podcast, “Countdown.” The selfies of him shouting from his balcony were getting a little repetitive, so it’s good he’s found an outlet.
As Twitchy has reported, both Rep. Adam Schiff and CNN analyst Adam Kinzinger are having tantrums that Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given more than 40,000 hours of January 6 footage to Tucker Carlson and his staff. Plenty reminded Kinzinger that Congress has had this footage all along and that his select committee chose to work with a former ABC producer to edit together a “highlight reel” for the public.
Olbermann isn’t just angry that Carlson has the video; he thinks Fox News should be shut down as a national security risk, as the footage will likely be used to “provide a roadmap” for future insurrectionists to evade detection.
Watch below, this is pretty funny.
"It is time to de-platform and close down FoxNews as a threat to national security.
"@SpeakerMcCarthy has given @TuckerCarlson 41,000 hours of 1/6 Video so he can gaslight the coup AND next time provide a roadmap past detection."

Some people were not impressed.
Keith’s fascist recommendation of the day.

Someone’s jealous. And a little “off”, too.

dude, just a couple of days ago you made an argument that blue states need to starve out red states.
You're as has been. Delete your account.

Sir, with all due respect (which is none), I think you have mental issues.

Keith really does seem to need help. He is as unhinged as he ever was, although with a much smaller audience.
