So it has come to the attention of Keith Olbermann's expensive Ego that there is some grumbling about the 7.5 mil that the Ego pulls down every year for being THE EGO.
Dear Mr. Olbermann, While General Electric, the parent-company of your MSNBC network, was negotiating a $126 billion taxpayer-funded bailout, you signed a new contract raising your salary from $4 million to $7.5 million annually. You have used your show as a platform to call for the resignation of corporate executives accepting excessive bonuses on the backs of taxpayers who are picking up the tab for these atrocious bailouts, yet you yourself have no problem engaging in the same “class economic rape” that you accuse them of. Please heed your own advice and stop accepting taxpayer money to subsidize your nightly diatribes. Resign or return the balance of your excessive raise to the U.S. TreasuryOh these guys kill me. Do they have any concept of how expensive Yankee tickets are now that they've built a new stadium? Do they know how much it costs to live in a $5M plus apartment on Park Avenue? And more importantly, do they know how expensive it is to support Katy Tur? And then there are the insurance costs for my world-class collection of baseball cards. I'm worth more than O'Reilly when you factor (get it--Factor?) in how much those cards are worth. And this guy from US News and World Report who is serving as a PR firm for these bozos needs to chill.
"It is just outrageous that Olbermann, night after night, goes after executives at so-called bailout firms when he himself works for one. He likes to call other people on their inconsistencies—he calls them the worst person in the world. Well, he needs to take a look in the mirror."Actually the Ego spends a great deal of time looking in the mirror, but mainly just to check out the fabulousness that is Keith Olbermann's Ego. Whatever. The bottom line is that Keith Olbermann isn't giving back the money that GE had to borrow to pay him. That's their problem, not The Ego's. And calling out Wall Street execs and the like for doing the same? That's not being hypocritical. That's just The Ego being The Ego. And by now you should know that's it is all about Keith Olbermann and what's best for him, 24/7/365 just as it should be. Now if you'll excuse me, The Ego has to get back to more bidding on Ebay.
Yeah, that's right people, Keith Olbermann spends more on Ebay in a week than most people make in a month. But The Ego has to do something with all of that GE money, right?
