Keith Olbermann Out at DNCNBC

Keith Olbermann being escorted out of the building at MSNBC by Comcast

Above is an exclusive photo of Keith Olbermann being escorted out of MSNBC by Comcast Security.

First, before I get to the details of the story, here is the reaction of America to the news...

And, in a special suspension of the rules here, I'll post a video of the anti-American Olbermann saying his goodbye on his show...

In a statement, MSNBC said : “MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract. The last broadcast of ‘Countdown with Keith Olbermann’ will be this evening. MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”

MSNBC announced that “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell would replace “Countdown” at 8 p.m., with “The Ed Show” with Ed Schultz taking Mr. O’Donnell’s slot at 10 p.m. Mr. Olbermann did not discuss any future plans, but NBC executives said one term of his settlement will keep him from moving to another network for an extended period of time.

....According to several senior network executives, NBC’s management had been close to firing Mr. Olbermann on previous occasions, most recently in November after he revealed that he had made donations to several Democratic candidates during the 2010 congressional elections — one of them, coincidentally, was Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who has been the subject of many of his recent shows after being shot in an assassination attempt in Tucson on Jan. 8.

I'm not sad to see him go, and glad that his contract will keep him from joining another network for an extended period of time. Perhaps he will end up where he belongs, drunk and incoherent, in a gutter somewhere. I wish that he reaps everything he has sown...and may the full horror of his actions and words be revealed unto him...
