    but also recognize his serious issues. If you respect Al Gore you should think about why it is that Gore rescued Keith, only to find him a nightmare and part ways less than a year later. There is a difference between a man and his message.

      And a lot with Joel Hyatt.

      And if you remember the movie "Philadelphia" the guy who fired the lawyer in the movie for being gay was based on Joel Hyatt.

      I saw what went on. Hyatt is vile.

        Olbermann go from a star employee to such a cancer on the organization that he is fired before you'll admit that his personality has something to be desired? How many of his coworkers must come out to share how he verbally abused them before they can be believed? We loathe abusive people here, but I guess it is okay if you are a liberal who does it.

          Are you going to believe the right-wing propaganda about him?

          How many times are you going to slam someone you don't even know?

            and who have gone public with it, are from the left, just like us. Why do you think that he can't get a job? I don't understand your level of denial, but it is okay by me. It is none of my business. Go ahead and think that he's a great guy. Fine.

          MSNBC didn't fire him.

          He negotiated his way out after the ridiculous suspension for donating quietly to Democratic candidates (because he was concerned for their security - Gabrielle Giffords was one he donated to, before she was shot).

          Gore and Hyatt courted him. Heavily.

          MSNBC did not fire him. And if you had actually watched Countdown on Current, you would see how much crap he had to put up with.

          But you go ahead and keep posting the same abusive blather, if that's the best you can do.
