Keith Olbermann is out, gone, kaput.
I don't consider MSNBC to be a news show - so I don't get this. I just don't get this. FoxNews can get away with murder and they DO advertise themselves as a news program with reporters, but MSNBC, not so much, especially since they consciously tried to mimic the more successful FoxNews by having opinionated hosts, rather than actual reporters. They were successful in beating CNN and now are actively surging toward Fox, but with the loss of Keith? Not their best move, imho. He never pulled punches and that's what we need. OTOH, maybe we need the punches, just more delicately given?
Right now, the story is just breaking as folks watch his final show, so no accurate reasons are making themselves known. :(
