Keith Olbermann Has Been Suspended From ESPN
I swear to God, I really was going to write a blog post about how I was wrong about Keith Olbermann and his new job with ESPN. I was going to reference this post, where I wrote, in July of 2013, that Olbermann's being hired by ESPN was a bad idea.
Then I saw this. Then I went, whew.
Good luck, Keith. You belong at 9PM on CNN. You are a talented, consummate professional and a great, great broadcaster. The problem is, you are a crappy employee in a world where you ought to be the employer. Oh well.
And, I don't know about you, but as soon as I saw that Bill O'Reilly had absolutely lost his shit this week and come completely unhinged, I suspected that there was going to be a moment when Keith would join him in the spotlight and step on his own genitalia. I know it's wrong of me to admit that, and I do plan to seek help for my affliction.
