Olbermann Fired (Again)

Keith Olbermann has been fired from Current TV for not honoring his five-year, $50 million contract.  This comes a little over a year after Olbermann left MSNBC under less than happy circumstances.

Eliot (Client #9) Spitzer is replacing him as of tonight, and the show is being re-named “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer” instead of Countdown.  Olbermann won’t have a chance to say goodbye.

I’m guessing there will be a lawsuit.  Current is owned by Al Gore and Joel Hyatt.

Olbermann is notoriously impossible to work with — he gives divas a bad name.
