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.

I am a little shocked that it took this long to rid the airwaves of this journalistic hack. Like most liberal commentators/mouth pieces on television, Olbermman bought nothing new nor unique to the forum. Your right on the money Tyrone, as far as Matthews' fate is concerned. He should have been placed on the television network chopping block, years ago! It's just a shame that ABC can't direct the same kind of shake-up towards Barbara Walters and her mindless daytime gab-fest' the "liberal" view. The double standard which is reflected on marginally-talented liberal-minded hags like Walters and her minnions at the view, is just shameless! Add to this group Katie Couric, whose feminine presence, has failed to cause the slightest dent within CBS' newscasting ratings. Yet, these women are consistently being celebrated and showered by both the press and their feminist co-horts for merely helping to promote destructive liberal diatribes, regularly, at the expense of the publics' arrogance.

All I can say is couldn't have happened to a better guy. I don't like Leftists all they are about is hate.

From Renee
(this is not a posting for this topic) I wanted to know if you got a chance to watch Sean Hannity this evening? because for the first time, in a long time, Al Sharpton got a bitter taste of his racial arrogance by a brave, unintimidated, Christian white man on television! You had to see Al's stunned face, when Rick Santorum bravely took him on and informed him on how the Democratic Party/Margaret Sanger/Planned-Parenthood supporting abortion mill has shamelessly deflated a good portion, of the black community! It was one the best shoot-outs, ever captured on cable television, and I applaud Mr. Santorum for exuding so much strength and brilliantly stompping down Al with honest facts on Sean's program!

Great! Get rid of Matthews, Couric, Walters, and all the other leftest on television!. Then work on getting rid of the ones on radio. Next, silence all opinions except the one's you want to hear. So we'll have an America with only one thought in political ideology.

Removing dissenting ideology from American politics is no different than installing a dictatorship. It appears that many conservatives are willing to take that road as long as it's their ideology dictated to the masses. The real scum are those who would want to silence those they don't agree with. It doesn't matter if you're on the right, or the left.

Of course you'll say "no body's saying get rid of them" or "I don't want to silence the opposition." If you do say that, you're a lying liar because that's exactly whats written here.

Shhhhh. Don't confuse this guys ill informed, short sighted, hypocritical ramblings with reality. It's amazing how the "enlightened" and "freethinking" conservatives always have the same talking points of any other conservatives.

I 2nd that thought on Rick Santorum from Rene and along with Herman Cain, these are attractive pro-life politicians. I always liked Alan Keyes, even when he first ran for President which might have been as early as 1988 or something like that, I thought he should have been allowed to have participated in the debates though maybe there is some threshold of popularity one has to cross. And our state had not voted yet when McCain became the clear choice of the GOP, I voted for him in the election but he still would have been about my 3rd or 4th choice though of course, Sarah was very good. Santorum handled his debate in his manner, perhaps he could have had more talking points. On the other hand, sheesh, I saw Rev. Al Sharpton on O'Reilly tonight. I've seen Stephen Smith on MSNBC routinely and Pat Buchanan seems to be a regular on that network. It is actually probably a good thing when these kind of people, meaning Liberals and Conservatives mix and go on the other's networks. I thought Al Sharpton was actually much less combative, more reasonable and courteous on O'Reilly's show which may be a good thing as he gets more exposure to other news media than just MSNBC.

@ the 2 Olbermann supporters; Olbermann was fired for both his hate and for his vaunted inability to get along with others....even at that kook factory MSNBC.

He served a purpose as GE's and Roger Imelt's paid far-Left, Corporatist shill, but he was nothing more than an embarrassment to MSNBC's new owners Comcast Cable.

Who knows?

Maybe Comcast actually cares about things like....ratings.
