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.

Was he fired because the network would not let him talked about the new do***entary about Goldman Sachs selling Fake stock into pension funds. The new Do***entary The Wall Street Conspiracy premiered in NYC March 1st, 2012 and on March 5th the movie director was to go on the Keith Olbermann Show on Current TV. Here is the official movie trailer www.TheWallStreetConspiracy.com see this powerful 3 minute clip for yourself.

Keith seemed to have lost his edge on Current TV but I tuned in every night hoping. One reason was he tried too hard to give his friends a voice. But still...I'm really sorry to have him gone. And fired by Al Gore? Are you kidding me? Particularly I will miss the readings from James Thurber.

Keith is like Rosie ODonnell and Soledad Obrian - he always fails at what he does and he always finds some other moron to hire him again so he can fail again. A tired old story - its time to let him go where fossils go to die.

silly kids, get back to worrying about who miley cyrus is banging. Olberman the typical liberal race baiter, one sided reasoning at best. He was straining to act serious when all those occupy hippies were stinking up the studio. Just cuz you can tweet doesn't mean you have something intelligent to say...now get back to wondering if the rock is gay. Know ur place silly kids.
