Keith Olbermann has been fired by Current TV, the network announced
Friday. He will be replaced by former New York governor and CNN host
Eliot Spitzer. Elliot Spitzer.... Hmmmm Does that ring a bell? OHHHHH yes I remember...the guy who resigned in shame after a huge prostitution scandal...

Elliot Spitzer embarassment

Has Al Gore gone crazy? I am not a big Olbermann fan and it has been noted that Olermann's gigs always seem to end with acrimony on both sides, but seriously? At least he is an actual experienced news "personality".

Keith Olbermann

Now he is being replaced by a guy who is known best for creating an embarrassment to his wife and family by spending taxpayer money to spend time with "special" hookers. You know... They aren't really hookers if they cost a lot.

Has Al Gore gone mad? It is rumored that it was HIS decision to replace Olbermann because of a dispute between the two. Elliot Spitzer really?

Al Gore crazy

    Gore has always been a few sandwiches shy of a picnic, I think he is getting worse as he ages, though! As I recall, Spitzer's debut on CNN didn't go so well, this could be really funny.

    ..Keith, who I really like as a newscaster, brought this all on himself. He is so freaking undisciplined. They were paying him fifty,... fifty million dollars, to sit in that chair, on that shabby set and deliver his version of the news , with Thurber thrown in on Friday. Nineteen of forty days off, what the hay? He needs to grow up. He may be good, but he is very scattered, when it comes to being professional. Spitzer is dull and his show will probably go down the drain. I believe in second chances, but you need talent, to make it work. Cheers.

    He should have been fired years ago. Spitzer needs to be fired before he opens his mouth.

    Al Gore has no problems with someone blowing through huge amounts of money - as long as somebody is getting screwed in the process.

    Did Current TV simply use Keith to gain attention and higher ratings? They KNEW what they were getting! Keith is forceful, honest and direct. He injects emotion into his commentary, his intelligent and incisive reporting, his humor, and his relationships....all of which makes his program so interesting. You FEEL his pain, you FEEL his anger, and you FEEL his heart-felt sincerity when he covers a story. He's never just another talking head! If Keith is absent from Current TV, then I too will be absent from Current TV. Keith is one of the best- hands down- as shown by is coverage of OWS, which was outstanding. I wish him well and hope he is back on the air soon. We need his unique voice.

    I used to watch Keith on MSNBC, but he just plain got arrogant and boring to me. Tried him on Current TV and again, same stuff... so, no not watching him anymore, But Spitzer? No way... will never watch him. Wish Keith had just started his new show totally fresh with new ideas.... then I would have stayed watching him.

    I dislike Olbermann. Yes he's very eloquent, but Lordy.......... he's the left's version of rush Limbaugh - all fake outrage and hyperbole. He brings the left into disrepute by behaving like a wailing banshee just like the banshees on the other side.

    Spitzer seems very level-headed and obviously has enough brains to understand complex financial and legal issues, but is a little wooden. He needs to relax a little and let some of his own personality through. His new job is not that of a news reader, but something more of a round table enabler. With hard work and a good team I hope he can emerge as a pleasant, sensible and useful news/political host.

    Spitzer might do better solo on Current TV. He knows quite a bit about the Wall St. debacle and corrupt corporatism. His range was limited as a duo on CNN. I haven't seen Olbermann since he left MSNBC.

    I agree with Olberman on most issues, but I haven't watched him for quite a while because he tends to lecture and judge others rather than report facts. He see's himself as a leader rather than a teacher I think, and leaders belong in politics where the voters can decide their fate. Newsmen and women are teachers of the facts.



    I object to Beck and Limbaugh using their platforms to incite discord, so if I don't also object to that activity on the left I have to question my own integrity. (Maybe it would be more accurate to say I don't like the answer I get when I question my own integrity, because people who don't question their own integrity have none.)



    Hmm, I like that.



    "People who refuse to question their own integrity prove themselves to have none."



    I think I'll just leave it there.

    let's face it...the Supreme Court knew something in 2008 that we didn't learn until later. He was a fruitcake and still is a fruitcake. Even after many years Tipper thought the same. She had him pegged and got out while she could.

    Good old Al has always been crazy. But this decision to have Olbermann out of there? Way to go Al. And as far as Spitzer, maybe Current TV will at least be interesting because the is not a "personality."

    Your right, maybe he is sly as a fox. Olbermann has been the loudest big mouth and even MSNBC got one right. As for the man Spitzer as the girls in NY use to think, they are getting no prize with him. CNN also got it rightonce.

    Al has never been stable - his company and he can do what ever he wishes. Olbermann had lower ratings than when he was on MSNBC (who thought that was possible) and in this industry rating matter - Keith should go back to sports where he did have some success. And Gore, well, who cares; we can just be thankful he did not get in the WH
