    Keith Olbermann never worked for the Fox News Channel.  David Shuster, however, did.

    Olbermann worked for Fox Sports, which is an entirely different division of the Fox media empire.  Yes, it is part of News Corp, but it isn't run by Roger Ailes, and it isn't overtly driven by any particular political ideology the way the so-called "News Channel" is.

    Saying Olbermann worked for Fox News is like saying "Family Guy" is a rightwing cartoon - because "Family Guy" is on the Fox Network, yet it's creator (Seth McFarlane) is a staunchly active Democratic contributor.  Technically, McFarlane's boss is ultimately Rupert Murdoch, however.

    Anyway, being a sports anchor for Fox Sports isn't remotely the same thing as being a newsreader or commentator for Fox News.
