Network sources tell Playbook that Keith Olbermann was suspended because he refused to deliver an on-camera mea culpa, which would have allowed him to continue anchoring “Countdown.” Olbermann told his bosses he didn’t know he was barred from making campaign contributions, although he is resisting saying that publicly. Olbermann may not hold as many cards as he thinks. He makes $7 million a year and MSNBC’s prime time is not as dependent on him as it was before the addition of Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell, who make considerably less.
Seriously? They want Keith Olbermann's Ego to a-p-o-l-o-g-i-z-e? Don't those pinheads at MSNBC get that the greatness that is Keith Olbermann's Ego is never, ever wrong? And to admit it on air? Are these people smoking crack? They should apologize to Keith Olbermann's ego and the Ego simply refuses to back down to pinheads. As it should be.
