Keith Olbermann is a liar, a bully ... and worst of all -- he's just plain MEAN ... this according to Current TV.

The network has fired back at the "Countdown" host ... claiming his $70 million lawsuit is "false and malicious."

Current also says Olbermann was a crappy employee ... and got the chop due to "serial, material breaches of his contract, including the failure to show up at work, sabotaging the network and attacking Current and its executives."

A rep for the network added, "As the old adage says: 'When the law is on your side, you argue the law. When the facts are on your side, you argue the facts. When neither the law nor the facts are on your side, you pound the table.'"

He continues, "We will be happy to engage on the law and the facts in the appropriate forum. It is well established that over his professional career Mr. Olbermann has specialized in pounding the table."

The network concludes with one final shot ... "We hope Mr. Olbermann understands that when it comes to the legal process, he is actually required to show up."

The network rep says "We will be happy to engage on the law and the facts in the appropriate forum".

He apparently concludes that TMZ is that appropriate forum.

Lol to the guy who asked about taking a bribe from conservatives. Conservatives didn't need Oldermann's help to tank Current TV. Much like Oprah's OWN... no one is watching. it's tanking on it's own.

Algore and Keith O. both make me sick so I couldn't care less what they do. No one will hire O. and Current tv is about to bite the dust as it joins the other libtards who try to spew their progressive views.

Wow! They told him. We all slack off when we are unhappy where we are at. Sounds like a bad match from the beginning. But he was being paid a lot of money. What a %%%%. You can find a million and one people I hear commenting on the internet all the time that would do a much better job.
