Keith Olbermann isn't necessarily the easiest dude to work with, we hear. And we fear that it's that idea that is keeping him from quickly staffing his new show.
Countdown has been notoriously hard to fill for Keith, to the point where he's trying to poach people from MSNBC to come work from him.
A source had this to say about that:
"Everyone is laughing. They would never leave the network to work for him."
He offended a lot of people when he left. Yet, someone affiliated with his new show is singing a different tune:
"Keith is also assembling a first class team and that's going nicely too. We have already hired three former "Countdown" staffers and others from MSNBC. We are announcing the EP shortly."
We're more inclined to believe the first quote, mainly because it has taken him forever to staff up. This is why you don't burn bridges, Keith!
