I like Keith Olbermann despite sometimes being over-the-top on Countdown. He criticized both sides of the aisle (more so the Right then the Left). When he was let go by MSNBC last month, it didn’t faze me too much. I got rid of my cable back in 2009, woo hoo! But I was hoping to see him back on something more visible than Current Media. Honestly, I didn’t even know what Current Media was until his announcement.
Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC host, is starting a news and commentary show on Current TV, a cable channel co-founded by Al Gore.
Olbermann, who left MSNBC last month after serving a two- day suspension over political donations in November, is receiving equity in the company and will serve as chief news officer, New York-based Current Media said today in a statement.
