News Item: Keith Olbermann leaves MSNBC

Not the biggest surprise in the world. Keith's legendarily difficult to work with and has had acrimonious departures from just about all of his previous jobs. I'm sure we'll get the full story- quit or fired? Comcast's doing or not?- in the coming days.

I hadn't watched the show much the last couple of years, mostly because I don't watch much cable news anymore and also because Olbermann had gotten kind of over-the-top and insufferable.

But his show was tremendously watchable and valuable, especially during the Bush years, and I've enjoyed him going back to the ESPN years. And I can guarantee I'll never watch Lawrence O'Donnell's show.
