Not sure what went on with Current TV and Keith Olbermann. Olbermann served a very useful purpose in a very dark time in our nation’s history. But he got too full of himself. I don’t think we’ll be seeing too much of him anymore. Or are their fourth acts in American celebrity?
In an open letter to Current viewers, Gore and co-founder Joel Hyatt wrote “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.”
My cable provider charges extra for Current TV, so I’ll never know the difference.
