Quote of the Day

“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.” 

– Current TV network founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt in a statement terminating Keith Olbermann as host of “Countdown,” just one year into his 5-year, $50 million contract. 

In a seemingly unrelated event, Olbermann said he plans to sue.  Poor Keith.  All pissed off and nowhere to go with it.
