Current TV has apparently sacked Keith Olberman after less than a year. This has caused thousand of people to cry, “Wait a minute? Current TV still exists?! Really?!” Really.
Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.
It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently.
Al Gore v. Keith Olberman? As someone else said on Twitter, whoever loses, America wins.
