In the letter, the channel’s founders, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, wrote on Friday: “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before. Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”
Too nuts for MSNBC and too nuts for Current TV. Maybe Radio Havana has an opening?
As for Current TV, they are replacing the fruitcake with Eliot Spitzer. I believe the industry term for that is "doubling down on fail".
