Keith Olbermann aired his final show on MSNBC tonight. Apparently a deal of some sort was made earlier this week. Olbermann will paid out for his contract for the next two years and will be unable to appear on television until that contract comes to an end.
If you want a good laugh, go read the comments on HuffPo. Apparently the world is coming to an end.
Some have decided that boycotting Comcast is the way to go. Others are unsure if Olbie's replacement, Lawrence O'Donnell is sufficiently liberal enough. After all he said he wasn't a liberal, he's a socialist.
Rumor is that he was indeed fired because he didn't play well with others. Shocker!!! I mean really, who would think that a man that arrogant would be difficult to get along with. I never saw that coming.
Apparently, the meme that Comcast likes republicans isn't going to work to well:
Political Contributions. So, it isn't that Comcast likes the GOP, they just aren't that into poor ol' Olbie.
