Keith Olbermann is gone but not forgotten.
I can't believe how much press Keith Olbermann's firing or "resignation" is getting.
He didn't get this much attention when he was doing his lowly rated show "Countdown "on MSNBC. Keith did his last show Friday. I have my suspicions on why he was suddenly shown the door. It just happened that Olby's last day this past Friday was on the day that Comcast completed it's purchase of NBC Universal from General Electric. MSNBC is owned by NBC. I just wonder could it be possible that Comcast actually cares about it's businesses making a profit rather then pushing an agenda like GE did? GE was contempt with it's far out left wing kooks on MSNBC spewing their insanity and not making any money for the MSNBC division. The executives at General Electric are liberals who love the Chi-Coms and as long as Olby and the crew at MSNBC reported their "version"of the news from their liberal perspective, all was right with MSNBC. I guess there is a new sheriff in town, and this sheriff cares about the financial bottom line. Olby's four year thirty million dollar contract was set to end next year. I'm sure the advertising execs at MSNBC were giving deep discounts to advertisers so they would buy ad time on Olbermann's show, due to it's pathetic ratings. It's easy to see how non existent a return on investment paying him that kind of a salary was. In other words, he simply wasn't nowhere near worth what he was getting paid. Olby provided me with some great material over the years. I goof on Chris Matthews the most, however Olbermann was a close second. I just have to wonder will there be more house cleaning going on over at MSNBC. The next person's head that needs to be on the corporate chopping block is Chris Matthews. Matthews is pulling down several million dollars a year in salary as well with very few viewers to show for it. So it only makes sense to fire Matthews next if Comcast is serious about turning around the money pit known as MSNBC and actually making it a real news organization instead of the progressive running gag that it currently is. I wish I could personally thank Keith Olbermann. He played a part in unknowingly exposing just how mentally screwed up liberals are on a nightly basis. Cya Olby, you'll be missed.
