Apologies in advance for this short - sweet - but - to - the - point diary, but I knew this news would be of interest to this community.

The story (what little there is of it at this point) is right here, but the gist of it is that those of you who were looking forward to a knock - down - drag - out trial are going to be sad to learn there won't be one. A settlement was reached during an arbitration meeting in San Francisco in the last couple of days. Ah...San Francisco...is there anything that CAN'T be accomplished there? ;D

Seriously, I'm sure both parties are happy to have an already ugly situation that could've gotten way more ugly behind them. Keith Olbermann can go on doing whatever he darn well wants whenever he darn well feels like it; Current TV can go on to obscurity.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
