It seems that Keith Olbermann's termination from Current TV will lead to a bitter war between the two camps. The cable channel announced on Friday, March 30 that it fired its lead anchor after hiring him one year ago, claiming that Olbermann no longer respects the network's "values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers."
Sharing his own side of the story, Olbermann soon took it to Twitter to say, "I'd like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV. Editorially, Countdown had never been better." He added, "But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I've been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff."
