    allowed to give anyone an accounting if he has the usual buyout clause in his contract.  And honestly, the man doesn't owe us anything but what he gave us night after night.

    •  I'll wait for Olbermann to explain it... (0+ / 0-)

      in the meantime, you know, I know, Olbermann knows, that his leaving under what seems to be hostile circumstances is like whacking the hornets nest.

      I spent a few hours of my own life trying to figure out what was happening here.  Maybe that's MY problem for taking Olbermann as seriously as I once did.

      That he hasn't bothered to come out with anything, and it's been a good day and a half, means to me that what he's after is to build the buzz, on a deal he may have been privy to for a while.  Pure theatrics.

        My guess is a couple of days with the phone off, the internet paused and the TV unplugged might be just the right therapy at the moment... not to mention the right advice from his lawyers.

        And as I recall, Conan had a similar non-compete period before he was allowed to say or do anything.

        Dear GOP: please practice some abstinence and stop f*cking the American people.
