Bill O'Reilly Almost Surely Rejoicing: Keith Olbermann Out At MSNBC

Reported by Ellen - January 21, 2011 -

Tonight was Keith Olbermann's last Countdown Show. Huffington Post's Sam Stein tweeted, "Am told that this is more about Jeff Zucker departure than Comcast taking over. Zucker was Olbermann's protector there." As Mediaite notes, today was Zucker's last day, too. But while an MSNBC spokesman said Comcast's acquisition of NBC had nothing to do with the supposedly mutually agreed-to departure, Mediaite also reports that Olbermann's relationship with MSNBC had "seriously begun to sour in the last year" and that "sources close to the situation have told Mediaite that there is no question that Comcast had expressed concerns about Olbermann." Olbermann's farewell after the jump.
