The "O" Is Out
Current TV and Keith Olbermann have parted company, and not amicably. Yesterday, the cable channel announced that Olbermann had been fired, and Olbermann responded that he would see them in court. While the details are emerging, it appears that Olbermann thought that Current TV didn't devote the proper resources to his nightly broadcast. Current TV has its own version, so it will all come out in the courtroom wash. Nonetheless, we're sad to see this squabble occurring in progressive broadcasting.
