    From http://en.wikipedia.org/... :

    "The Comcast Corporation owns a ten percent stake of Current's parent company, Current Media LLC.[1]"

    Source #1 is a link to a news article about the Comcast-NBC merger which lists Comcast's joint holding ventures, including Current TV: http://www.stopbigmedia.com/...

      ...that Comcrap has little to do with KO's departure from MSNBC, and its more like a problem between him and Phil Griffin, based on my own misadventures at work (which included several suspensions without pay). Maybe Comcrap wants Keith at Current? Maybe they don't really care at all.

      Stay tuned...

        or it could have had less to do with Comcast and more to do with Jeff Zucker's departure; Zucker was one of Olbermann's biggest backers at NBC/MSNBC, and Keith may have seen the writing on the wall back in November with his "indefinite suspension".
