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."

Put Gore and Olderman in a closed box and let them claw each other to death. When their done you don't even have to touch them, just drop the whole box in a pit and cover it, done.

Amazing events. I can't believe I'm actually backing something Al Gore is behind. Two lying and corrupt liberal idiots battling. I love it. Can't stand the sight of that arrogant, self loving, holier than thou smug delusional liberal jackass Olberman. He's the face of the far left. They are all just like him and share all the same traits.

While I support Keith's politics, his arrogance and pomposity is beyond measure. Furthermore, some of his grievances are so puerile as to make me think he's simply an overgrown bully with the temperament of a spoiled preteen.

Keith, you are making yourself unemployable and about as desirable as ants at a picnic.

Keith Odor-man is a total ass. This is the 4th network he has been fired from. Hopefully it's the last we will see of him, but there will be some far left wing loon place that will hire an idiot like him. He claims to be for the "99%" yet is a multi millionaire who treats everyone around him like he is better then them.

He needs medication. He's a whack job. Keep him off the air at least until he gets balanced. No more hall passes for you Mr. Olbermann. Throw in the white towel.
