In an interview Tuesday with David Letterman in New York, Olbermann compared himself to an expensive chandelier that ended up without a home.
Yep, Keith WAS the bright light, the classy chandelier if you will, at CurrentTV. And they turned out the light. Hey, when they say “Keith, you’re gonna be half-partner at Current” and they offer you 10 million a year, it implies that you’ll have SOME control over your work environment, your new home... no? Ahhhhh yes ....but of course....excuse me, I forgot : For we must contrast those nasty angry egotistic Liberal commentators (like Keith Olbermann) with…..the quiet, humble, self-effacing, ego-less, almost Budda-like qualities of Conservative commentators…..who, no doubt, bicycle to work, so that they might not offend THEIR limo drivers. Chill out Right Wingers, and just take two (more) Viagras. But do me a favor- and DON’T call me in the morning.:-) The REAL question we should be asking is : Did CurrentTV simply USE Keith to gain attention and higher ratings? They KNEW what they were getting! Did they lure him with big bucks, and then drop him when they were done? Yes, we all know that Keith injects emotion and passion into his commentary, into his intelligent and incisive reporting, and into his humor….all of which makes his program interesting, as well as informative. He’s forceful, honest, and direct: you FEEL his pain, you FEEL his anger, and you FEEL his heart-felt sincerity when he covers a story. And he covers it well. He’s NEVER just another talking head! If Keith is absent from CurrentTV, then I too will be absent from CurrentTV. For Keith is one of the best – hands down- as evidenced by his outstanding coverage of OWS during the past year. I wish him well, and hope that he is back on the air soon. We need his unique voice and viewpoint!
