Hadn’t planned on logging back on tonight but when this story came across the wires, of course you know I had to. Media guru Howie Kurtz has the interesting backstory involving the “build up” to Olbermann’s departure from the network. Mediaite writes about the backstory as well. Suffice it to say that this had nothing to do with “right wing corporatism” or the recent Comcast takeover, contra what you will hear from outraged lefties.
I really have nothing to add to this story except: Good riddance, hateful jack a$$. And thanks for the early birthday present.
