(VIDEO) Keith Olbermann and MSNBC Part Ways

We don’t know much yet however we are positive that Keith Olbermann’s last show with MSNBC was tonight and we are positive that he still hates ESPN. He and MSNBC have ended their contract effectively after tonights show. The last episode of “Countdown” will air this evening, Friday, January 21. According to the New York Times; “In a closing statement on his show, Mr. Olbermann said simply that it would be the last edition of the program. He offered no explanation other than on occasion, the show had become too much for him.”

Mr. Olbermann thanked his viewers for their enthusiastic support of a show that had “gradually established its position as anti-establishement.”

MSNBC issued the following statement; “MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract. The last broadcast of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will be this evening. MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Comcast deal is approved and Keith Olbermann gets fired. Coincidence? Cosby Sweaters thinks not. Here is video of his final sign-off. Does anyone else pick up on the not so subtle throwing of ESPN under the bus?
