Sorry for my gleefulness, but Keith Olbermann is leaving MSNBC. This is a complete surprise, but with Comcast’s recntly approved acquisition of NBC, it was only a matter of time before Olby would butt heads with management, meaning this is a move that Olbermann is likely taking to avoid such uncomfortable circumstances.
The Daily Caller has video of Olbermann’s sign-off: http://dailycaller.com/2011/01/21/olbermann-announces-last-broadcast-on-msnbc-video/
And Jim Treacher has a great blog post showing how pathetic all the Olby fans are. Their collective mourning in twitter is pathetic:
