keith Current TV Fires Keith Olbermann

According to Current TV:

“We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before. Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”

For his part, Olberman plans to sue Current TV. Only a few weeks ago I appeared on what turns out to be one of Olbermann’s final broadcasts on this network.

I’d love to hear what our readers think about this latest development.
