Olbermann SABOTAGED Us

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."

Keith managed to become high-achiever in his work despite his short-comings as an employee and individual. He may never find work with national recognition again. Internet streaming could be his next venture as Glen Beck did.

This is what happens to people who speak the truth. As a Democrat, I'm ashamed of Al Gore.

omg, lol, is he still in the news? He needs to go away w/his tail between his legs. HE IS TOAST! People are so tired of him. He should be grateful for what he had years ago. Time to move on and in the private sector. Buh! Bye!

Hopefully this is the last we'll see of Mr. Blowhard Olberman. He truly was the biggest jerk on television and as it turns out he's also the biggest jerk off camera as well. At least he's consistent at something.

They knew exactly what they were getting with him - when you roll around with a pig...you smell bad! Now it's going to make some lawyers rich(er).

Looks like both sides are pounding the table. ... another feather in the cap of that great internet inventor, algore. . ..

The most interesting thing going forward will be to see who hires this clown. .. .and you know someone will. ..liberals don't care about honesty, integrity, ethics or intellect, so I imagine some news organization will trot this baffoon out prior to the election so he can bash the Republicans. . . .

The democrat are so desperate with their fail president . .. .
