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.

I can't believe this! Spitzer is an idiot and how he was ever hired at CNN before this was always a puzzle to me. I love Keith!! Al Gore ... truly the absolute worst person in the world.

If Keith Olbermann is "absent" from Current TV, then I too am absent from Current TV. Keith is the best commentator on TV, hands down. His coverage of OWS was unmatched. Let's hope that he will soon return to the air. We need his unique voice.

I have this fantasy where I slap Olbermann across the face, tell him to "shut the **** up", and proceed to **** his brains out. Don't judge.

Keith needs to retire and let his boyfriend worry about his irritated bowel problem.

Clearly the radical liberals have abandoned him.

Bahaha....FIRED from his last two jobs. NOT a good track record, dude. If I was YOU, I'd be kinda thinking of changing me ways, as it appears you seriously DO have some issues, mental or otherwise. You are a TOOL, btw.....SO glad ur gone from MSNBC. NOW, all they need to do is: Replace Rachel Madcow and Mister Ed......and I can watch them again! HAPPY JOB HUNTING, Azzwipe!

There's a problem here    

I'm no Olbermann fan but I can't stand to look at Eliot Spitzer without thinking about his drugged up wife standing behind his whoring ass, and him whoring around like some kind of horny alley cat. What a disgusting piece of trash.

"(Current TV) was founded on the values of respect, openness", SOMEONE INVOLVED IN 'HOT SEX' WINS OUT ! and the OPENNESS WAS ONLY OF THE GIRL'S shirt's because everything else was kept SECRET.
