BREAKING NEWS: MSNBC Fires Keith Olbermann

MSNBC has cut ties with Keith Olbermann.   Tonight the  liberal cable host announced the shocking news.

MSNBC issued a statement saying,

“MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”

A spokesman said that Comcast’s acquisition of NBC Universal had nothing to do with the decision to let him go.

Back in November, Olbermann was suspended for two days for violating a network rule on political donations.

So now Lawrence O’Donnell will fill Olbermann’s 8:00 PM slot beginning on this upcoming Monday.

Wow.  That was kind of shocking….
