Friday was a sad, sad day in the world of cable news as Keith Olbermann was fired from MSNBC and the network’s popular show Countdown came to an end. Not only did MSNBC lose one of their flagship program and one of their most popular hosts, but also Glenn lost some easy competition.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Keith Olbermann has left the building,” Glenn announced on radio this morning.
Glenn predicted Olbermann’s exit from MSNBC back in Novemeber.
“You are going to hear the liberals come out and start to throw MSNBC under the bus and throw them under the bus hard. And here’s why. MSNBC is marked for death. If it is sold to Comcast, Comcast will run it like a business. If it remains liberal, it will just be a good liberal station. It will just run things that will actually get ratings. If it is ‑‑ if it’s not, it will most likely just be a news channel or ‑‑ I mean, I don’t know what they’re going to do with it. But it won’t feature Keith Olbermann,” Glenn said.
