Keith Olbermann Claims Trouble Landing a Job

Keith Olbermann has settled his $50 million lawsuit with Current TV, bringing an end to the almost year-long legal dispute over the outspoken host's dismissal from the liberal news network.

The terms of the settlement, which was reported earlier this week, were not released. But two sources familiar with the negotiations now tell POLITICO that during the mediation stage, Olbermann's legal representatives cited his inability to get a job at another network -- a move one source close to the negotiations interpreted as an effort to gain sympathy for Olbermann.

    I would argue that his inability to get another job is proof that he deserved to be fired.

    His loyal viewer will be crushed.

    I find myself smiling broadly whenever I am reminded how much this fuck cost Gore and the other pantloads that invested in the Current train wreck.
