Uh-oh! He is NOT taking this news well!

Keith Olbermann was fired yesterday from his show Countdown on Current TV, after the network's Al Gore called him disrespectful and disloyal to viewers, and now, the commentator is firing back, claiming those statements to be so untrue that he's going to press charges against them!

He says in a statement:

"I'd like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.

Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.

It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently. To understand Mr. Hyatt’s 'values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty,' I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee’s name was Clarence B. Cain.

In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it.

It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently."

The truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out."

Wow! That's some serious shiz!

We have a feeling that this is going to become a whole lot uglier before it gets resolved, too!

What do U think?? Team Olbermann or Team Gore?

    These Lefties reveal their true parochialism and immaturity when they enter the real world.
    They should call themselves "Regressives".
    -
    Just this week, is a shining example of Lefties living in the bubble…
    -
    Obama's Solicitor General, Verrelli, got caught with his pants down when arguing before the Supremes…they have never even admitted to a possible conclusion, other than there own…then, they have a tantrum, then they sue to get justice, and wonder why the world isn't fair.
    -
    They have never heard of the conbcept of the People are sovereign in the Constitution and a limiting government.
    No one at Harvard in the faculty lounge would even begin to speak of this w/o being branded a traitor because they don't know about it either.
    -
    Supreme Court Justice Kagan, is a clear example of this with her questioning…she is utterly clueless and could never debate a good high school debate team, that must be able to debate both sides with equal vigor.

    This guy is a loose cannon ready to go off. Nothing professional about him. The few time I watched him, he acted like a spoiled 10 yr old, wadding up paper and tossing it over his shoulder and yelling.

    i believe he is a sexual pervert…not sure, just my guess, and what i've heard from people who seem to know him…
    have there ever been sexual harassment charges made against him?



  5. 5

    He needs to go away. I vote Democrat but I don't want him or Michael Moore on my team. Ugh

The new Documentary The Wall Street Conspiracy premiered in NYC March 1st, 2012 and on March 5th the movie director was to go on the Keith Olbermann Show on Current TV.
