Keith Olbermann fired - again


Keith Olbermann, the political host, has just been fired from Current TV network.

Olbermann had been hosting "Countdown" on Current TV since June - soon after he got the fired at MSNBC.

In a statement from Keith Olbermann, he says he plans to sue: "It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently."

In a statement from Current TV owner Al Gore: "[Current TV] was founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it."

Olbermann's show will be replaced by “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer.”
