Remember when we declared that Keith Olbermann got a new job, and that it was waaaay more basebally than the last?
It looks like we were OFFICIALLY right — just, with ESPN instead of TBS! LOLz!
He'll be hosting an 11 pm show on ESPN 2, and it debuts on Aug. 26th — this was JUST announced! We still don't have a title, though, which is super bogus this late in the game! Here's what Keith said about it:

Something tells us the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe wish they had just gotten a text message from Russell Brand instead!
When the Brand X host stopped by to promote his new Messiah Complex tour, he threw the anchors off balance right away by breaking their desk and commenting on one's low cut dress!
But when they commented on his unusual demeanor and even GOT HIS NAME WRONG, he quickly gave them a manners check, saying:

This was COMPLETELY unacceptable, and we're at least relieved to know that it's not being tolerated!
After Cincinnati Fox News anchor Tricia Macke garnered some completely-justified heat for mocking MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who is openly gay, by calling her "an angry young man" on her Facebook page, the WXIX station's management did the right thing by not only suspending her from her position, but had her issue an apology for her blatant homophobia!
The station released the following statement:

Eric McCormack asked, "who ELSE is gonna step up," when thanking Joe Biden for publicly supporting same-sex marriage and we do believe he already has his answer.
The U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has, for the first time ever, publicly announced his support for the cause.
While appearing on Monday's Morning Joe, he was asked point blank if he supports same-sex marriage and without any hesitation he answered, "Yes, I do."
The crew on the MSNBC morning show has

Alec Baldwin does not like Mitt Romney and isn't afraid to say it.
While appearing on MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, the 30 Rock star said (with pride):
"Romney is as out of touch with the average American as we could possibly find on the meter today."
How is he out of touch with us? We all casually make $10,000 bets on the campaign trail every once in a while, right? Ha!
Baldwin called him "a real blue blood money guy; a rich guy; a country club guy" as he talked about the many reasons he thinks Barack Obama already has the election "in the bag."
Ch-ch-check it out the entire interview (above) and let us know if U agree with the actor (below)!
