Keith Olbermann To Continue His Quest For Even Lower Ratings

Tuesday, February 8 by

When Keith Olbermann announced that he planned for even less people to see him on TV on a nightly basis by leaving his MSNBC show, many thought that it couldn’t be done. If Keith Olbermann left MSNBC, he might end up being accidentally seen on Fox News and seen by millions of people, killing his mission to be seen on TV by as few people as possible. Well, Mr. Olbermann has heroically proven his naysayers wrong once again with his latest announcement: He will host and produce a nightly prime-time news program on Current TV. Olbermann:

“Nothing is more vital to a free America than a free media, and nothing is more vital to my concept of a free media than news produced independently of corporate interference. In Current Media, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have created the model truth-seeking entity.  The opportunity to partner with Al, Joel and Mark Rosenthal makes this the most exciting venture in my career.”

Glenn Beck is probably wondering to himself “no corporate interference? How would I pay for all the awful shit I doubtlessly own?” Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin continues to consider following in Olbermann’s footsteps and being seen by even less people than his brother Stephen.(via The Hollywood Reporter)
