Keith Olbermann

FIRED from Current TV --

Replaced By Elliot Spitzer

3/30/2012 2:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Keith Olbermann is officially unemployed ... again.
Keith Olbermann is officially unemployed ... again ... cause the political host has just been FIRED from his gig on Al Gore's Current TV network.

Olbermann had been hosting "Countdown" on Current TV since June ... right after he got the chop over at MSNBC.

Now, it seems he's once again pissed off his employer ... 'cause Al Gore just released a statement in which he explains, "[Current TV] was 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."

Olbermann's show will be replaced by “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer” ... featuring the politician who resigned from office in the wake of a sex scandal.

Olbermann is a dweeb of the Nth degree.

Good riddance ! It couldn't have happened to a WORSER guy.

The two viewers of COUNTDOWN on Current will be so disappointed when in about six or five weeks they begin to notice that he's gone.

Remember on November 6 that Olbermann and Spitzer share the same views as Obama.

Spitzer replaced him and now the show has been re-titled Current VD. It's a show about the current state of venereal disease in Washington D.C. Spitzer will give tips on what rubbers are the most durable, proper etiquette when calling a madam, and how to hide the money trail when paying hookers.

Al is going to have a new show too. This is all about body massage. Where to go, what to say, and how much to pay.

Olbermann is a big ole brat. He's hard to get along with. Not too keen on Eliot Spitzer's sex habits but the guy is brilliant and the show on CNN was great (without the lady next to him who was not on his level). He really will do a good show because he's informed, analytical and an aggressive interviewer. It will be a lot better than the big EGO Olbermann and his adolescent boy humor.

This is so funny. Kweef Olberman gets what he deserves. When MSNBC dumps your sorry as* you have to be really bad. Who else but All Gore would be dumb enough to give you a job on a staition that only a socialist would watch. Must su*k being an old dog even the flea All Gore won't touch.

Al Gore is a machine politician and wannabe Master of the Universe and is doing his bit to facilitate Spitzer's political resurrection. Guess what: da Steamrolla won't get my vote for higha awfice.
