TV Host Nobody Watches Will Now Be Able to Sit at Home and Not Be Watched [UPDATED]

Via The Angry Webmaster:

Current TV said Friday afternoon that it had terminated the contract of its lead anchor Keith Olbermann, scarcely one year after he was hired to reboot the fledgling channel in his progressive political image.

How better to boot a douchenozzle nobody watches than by announcing it on a day when nobody listens to the news?

In a letter to viewers, the channel said Friday, “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before. Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”

He’s not enough of a ProgNazi for your ProgNazi network? What does it take anyway? Armbands? Jackboots? Incoherent babbling about the Final Solution?

Not content with slapping the Most Ignored Mug on TV™ by booting him off on a Friday, Current TV decided to add insult to injury:

Mr. Olbermann will not be given an opportunity to sign off. Starting Friday night, the former New York governor Eliot Spitzer will replace him at 8 p.m., according to the letter to viewers. His program will be titled “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer.”

They’re replacing the ranting, spittle-flecked Olberdouche with Eliot Whore Monger Spitzer?

The Imperial News Network was unable to reach Olberdouche for comment as he wouldn’t come out of his bathtub.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Olberdouche responds to the Douche TV statement:

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. […] In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out.

Oh our Imperial Stars! DOUCHE FIGHT!™

Go get the popcorn, somebody, we’ll furnish the beer.

They really need to back and watch “Triumph of the Will” again and take copious notes.

Well, now. I can’t believe Current TV would deliberately leave themselves open to a lawsuit, so I figure they must have added a special ‘Assholery’ clause to his contract.

Which, with Olberhack, is never a bad idea.

‘Gentlemen, step off ten paces, turn, and squeeze your Summer’s Eve.’

Knowing Olbermann, he’d probably use something vinegar-based – it’d match his sour disposition.

Somebody probably got to reading the fine print crayon on their income statement and realized his salary was almost all of their total expenses, and this is hard to spread over a viewer base comprised entirely of staff family members and Olbermann’s two homosexual groupies.

bankruptcy can’t be far behind.

Just heard about this and thought I’d pop over to the Rott to see the reaction. I’ve not been disappointed. Although I do find it strange that Al Gore could make such a wise decision.

Apparently, in an unprecedented move, Current TV surveyed their entire viewer base and neither one of them liked Olbermann.

In perhaps one of the more obtuse bouts of being self unaware we get this flaming heap of asininity. In a letter to viewers, the channel said Friday, “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media All this while being organized as a corporation. This is why liberalism fails as an ideology.… Read more »

LC FX Phillips says: This is why liberalism fails as an ideology. Why of course they can do that with a straight face. They honestly think that their corporation is better than others as whatever they construct is done for purely altruistic ‘need’, as all endeavors of the left must by definition be. They believe that men are angels and… Read more »

Olberdouche vs. the Goracle … this is epic … crazed, delusional egomaniac vs. crazed, delusional egomaniac. This is like locking two paranoid schizophrenics in a dark cell and piping in whisper sounds.
