Keith Olbermann is a Jerk
I was never a big Rita Cosby fan, but Olbermann displays (what is becoming) his usual lack of respect and maturity in this correspondence that kicked the whole "controversy" off (from wiki):
Olbermann wrote to a fan from his MSNBC E-mail account saying, "Rita's nice, but dumber than a suitcase of rocks." Neither MSNBC or Olbermann has yet publicly commented on the email, but Cosby did reply saying: "Keith got it wrong. I'm not that nice."
I found Cosby's response to be just about the wittiest thing she has had to say publicly.

No big surprise here. Olbermann offers a "well, I could have been the bigger man, but since I'm an egomaniac who feels it is absolutely necessary to respond in the most vile manner possible" cop out.
However, he became increasingly unhappy commuting to ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Connecticut, due to the area’s remote location and lack of an active social scene. Those issues, coupled with whispers that he could be difficult to work or get along with contributed to his departure from ESPN in 1997.
The whispers are getting louder, Keith. Should have stayed on Sportcenter with Dan Patrick. At the time it was one of my favorite shows, and the Patrick/Olbermann pairing on SC could be one of the best ever. Creating a rivalry with Bill O'Reilly by calling him "the worst person in the world" didn't seem to help your ratings much either. It's time to grow up, Keith. Shed the namecalling and the lack of maturity you have shown (publicly) over the past couple of years and come back to what you do best: sportscasting.

Olbermann is a loser. I watch his show for 5 min a month and not one viewing session goes by without him mentioning OReilly. I dont watch him either, but what kind of stiff just attacks the person smashing them in the ratings.

Olberman is a "no talent stiff" who is mad at the world unless you agree with him of course. He believes that Edward R Morrow was too long ago for anyone to remember, so Olberman or (Olberfurer) helped himself to the tagline "Goodnight and Good Luck. I think there are many savy young attractive people working at small television statioins who have 100 times the talent of Olberman; MSNBC needs to wise up!

I like him. He is a smart, funny wordsmith. Bush,O'Reilly and Fox deserve what they get, but more importantly Keith gets what is going on in Washington right. I think it is a bad idea to steal the good night and good luck tag line...Keep your knees loose was at least original....Don't take yourself TOO seriously.

Keith Olbershmuck... errrr... Olbermann was egomaniac no-talent hack during his days at ESPN, he was moved over to ESPN2 (aka. The Deuce) partly as a move to try and create some carryover traffic ratings for the fledgling ESPN2 venture at the time. And partly because no one at flagship ESPN (founding father Chris Berman included) could tolerate him and his "He look at me! I'm the most important thing you're watching & listening to!" attitude any longer. And despite what Olbermann claimed at the time and since, he made some pretty outrageous contract demands, least of which was more money. ESPN said bye-bye Keith.

Fast forward to 2008... has anything really changed with Keith? Only the network he works for... substitute politics for sports. And you still have the same old smarmy maniaclly egotistical person.

Do you really think he cares about politics??? Politics is merely a vehicle to promote one Keith Olbermann. Keith Olbermann cares only about Keith Olbermann, and no one else. He hasn't changed one bit since he first surfaced at ESPN many years ago. And his act is wearing very thin, as evidenced by the abysmal ratings for his show.

Keith? Do us all a favor and go back to what you do best... looking in a mirror and smiling back at yourself.

Keith Overbite is an ass clown. His shtick is tired and his self love blinds him to reality. His show is unwatchable and the liberal bent is pathetic. "Symbolism Over Substance" is the "war" cry of the Libs, and their fearless leader Olbermouse.

Fade into the sunset Keith, as you hemorrhage ratings from all but your out of touch leftist loons who dominate the media. Loser.

Me thinks he's got the hots for Uncle Bill. Bill laughs at him...as does most of America. Jerkmann did indeed make a name for himself but not in the way his mother would be proud of.

Kieth Olbermann is a pompous hypocritical jerk who seems to be obsessed with Fox and Bill OReilly. He is ruining MSNBC, and is a negative factor in the organization. Send him away - far away!

I gave up television 8 years ago because of yellow journalist like Olbermann. I'd challenge him to an I.Q. test and give him an 80 point lead!

Olbermann is a tool...MSNBC should fire his dumbass. But he is like any other far left jerk on that channel.. I hope he falls in a bucket of AIDS.

Why did Keith Albermann hold Obama and Biden's ball?

Did he always like to beat the women that he can't have?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 PM) : 

I used to call Olbermann the Bill O'Riley of the left...After watching latley I have had to change that to the Shawn Hannity of the left....There both crazy.

Keith Olbermann gets his news from Rolling Stone magazine and Moveon.org. Very depressing individual who hates everyone and America too. There's not a kind word in that shit head of his, Arnold the pig - from Green Acres had more talent than him......smarter too.
