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….
