This evening Keith Olbermann and MSNBC parted ways leaving viewers and the Media clucking their tongues and wondering what exactly happened here. Since his suspension in November on ethical issues, there has been no love lost between network management and Olbermann. Still, the departure tonight was certainly speedy and without an explanation. I have included a link to the goodbye, it is an interesting summation of a controversial cable host’s eight year tenure–sadly he did not channel Howard Beale at the end.

Thank you for your comments Ethyl. Your point is well taken concerning the blogs length. I tend to lay the ‘seeds’ of an idea, without expanding the prose. I will work on that. Cheers. r
31. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
The timing certainly is interesting, however I believe the political donation controversy sealed his fate back in November. Both parties never felt happy with the results. The Comcast acquisition does raise the question if there will be a shift in MSNBC’s political slant. I look forward to the coverage of this on Morning Joe Monday morning.
I wonder if this had anything to do with Comcast’s acquisition of NBC. I wonder.
