MSNBC and Olbermann

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Countdown with Keith Olbermann is was the only news show I regularly watched on MSNBC. I have always preferred CNN over MSNBC.

I’m feeling a little under the weather today, so I didn’t have the T.V. on so you can imagine my surprise when suddenly I started reading tweets about MSNBC and Olbermann parting ways (to put it nicely).

If you missed the show like I did, here’s a clip I found online:

And here’s MSNBC’s 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.

Am I the only one who wants an explanation? Somehow that statement above doesn’t seem enough. I am hearing it has to do with the NBC and Comcast merger deal going through

P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
