Keith Olbermann Is PISSED AT Current TV!

keith olbermann pissed at current tv
Seems like every time we hear from Keith these days, things aren’t going well!
Yesterday, Keith Olbermann released a statement in which he made it VERY clear that he’s pissed at his network Current TV over GOP Primary/Caucus coverage!
Here’s what he had to say about it:

“I was not given a legitimate opportunity to host under acceptable conditions. They know it and we know it. Telling half the story is wrong.”

And here’s what Current TV president David Bohrman had to say about it in a memo released to the Countdown staff:

“…As we assumed Keith had communicated to you, Keith was asked to be the sole anchor and executive producer of our primary and caucus coverage. He declined.”
“…We tried several times to have Keith participate in our coverage, including being the lead anchor for the 8p hour tonight, incorporated with our election group in the Los Angeles studio and produced in the LA control room. We have a special election graphic package, live remotes, caucus feeds, etc.”

We’re really not sure what happened, but hopefully they’ll be able to work everything out! It’d be a bummer if Keith were forced to leave ANOTHER network!
