Keith Olbermann

“After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night’s program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.”

- Phil Griffin, President MSNBC

superficial

  1. Manny

    In other words they pussed out after the crap they got from all his fans other hosts..

    • Releasethekraken

      Yeah, I guess Phil got 3 or 4 emails bitching about it…

      • No, it was always part of the plan. This was all a ploy to a) get ratings during November sweeps b) indirectly call attention to FOX’s reporters donating to Republican candidates. Both FOX and MSNBC are the dirtiest of the dirty for journalistic integrity.

      • One last thing: both Olberman and Beck are, and freely admit, they are commentators *not* journalists. They do not need to ascribe to what counts as “news”. They should be allowed to donate to whoever they choose to back.

    • poopooplatter

      The crap MSNBC is going to get from anti-olbermann people who will claim, as you do, that they pussed out is going to dwarf any response from his fans. Maybe all that fox news and talk radio you listen to has numbed you to the fact that bias you agree with is still bias. Firing KO would have been the pussy move, knuckling under to a bunch of hystericals who think it’s “fair and balanced” to have several GOP presidential candidates on the payroll of a supposed news organization.

      Also, libs don’t follow KO to near the extent that conservatives follow fox commentators and talk radio. look at the numbers.

      • heynow

        Because KO is an asshat.
        Fair enough on the Fox bias. Are you man/woman enough to admit that ABC/CBS/NBC/MSNBC/CNN/and of course NPR are also biased. If not, then discussion over, because you will have demonstrated that your mind is closed.
        Fox news is a reaction to the other outlets and their left bias. right or wrong, there it is. The extent to which you see the bias depends on which way the observer is leaning.

      • St Louis Jeff

        OK, so can we all admit that Fox and MSNBC are both worthless propoganda spewers and not “news” stations?

  2. Bubba

    Man I wish I was famous… Olbermann defies NBC’s rules and indefinitely means 72 hours, I accidentally get drunk and grab one ass at the company Halloween party and I’m still not allowed on the premises…

  3. Hemingway

    Proving once again that MSNBC/NBC execs are a bunch of men with vaginas.

    • hmm

      Man, I hate vaginas. They suck, right? Who in gods name would want one of those, or even want to go near one. You’d have to be retarded. Hemingway, you know exactly what’s up.

  4. Rick's Daddy

    Fox & Friends wish they KNEW what a vagina was.

    • Franksinatrastein

      Maybe, maybe not. What they do know, however, is how to kick MSNBC’s ass in every time slot. Prison slaves aren’t violated as routinely or violently as MSNBC is by Fox News.

      Maybe someone at MSNBC should wake up and fire Olbermann because he couldn’t sell water in the dessert. His show is a ratings disaster. The 37 losers who watch him should be locked up.

    • Ricks Daddies Daddy

      Yea, Fox News…they only have some of the hottest vagina to EVER grace the airwaves…and 99.999% of them are 300x smarter than your average MSNBC viewer, like you son.

      Just stick to the cross dressing and Cher concerts and dont worry about vagina. You dont have one because you are one.

      • jim x

        Yep. Fox sure knows how to hire hot women. Tell reliable and accurate news? Not so much.

      • Bow Down Assholes

        Hot vagina? More like ice cold with razor sharp teeth. That Megan Kelly looks like she could mutilate a dick faster than an industrial shredder.

    • Joe

      Oh, the chicks at Fox News are way hotter than any offering from MSNBC. MSNBC can’t even get good looking guests (Garfarolo, Huffington…). Politics aside, conservative women are much hotter and have better credentials than liberals. Even if you turn the sound off, Fox kicks MSNBC’s ass; with the sound on, Fox women are even more foxy.

      • Bow Down Assholes

        Yeah. You have to have something good to look at while you’re being lied to, Joe. The ones at the Tea Partys? Not so much. Don’t tell me Sarah is sexy either. She is past her prime and starting to look chewed with that turkey neck. Bachman just looks crazy, and O’Donnell has a fat ass. Don’t get me started on Coulter.

  5. And I look forward to continuing to not watch this asshat and his little temper tantrums. If your daily “worst” list is made up of the competition that kicks your ass in ratings by millions of viewers, that’s just pathetic.

    • Evil

      That’s ok I’ll watch for yah. Oh and the worsts list is made up of assholes, their ratings don’t matter, and he stopped doing the list last week, he may bring it back though as they are assholes. And and and, the worst list is not getting a doctor killed so you know, shut the fuck up.

  6. Ash Bones

    So he’s back on sportscenter?

  7. hmmmmm

    Still don’t care. Tits or GTFO!

    DEAR Superficial guy, WHY DO YOU GIVE A SHIT?

  8. butt munch

    Hmmm, papercut my ball sack or watch political hacks on tv? hard decision!

    The big question is, does he show tits, and if not, why is he on this site???

    • Mike

      Good point. At least give us Meadow cleavage, if you can find it. Start looking, Fish, that’s what we pay you for.

      • freaky

        The thought of seeing Maddow nude makes me vomit a little. It’s right up there with seeing Samantha Ronson in the buff. But probably better than seeing Lindsay’s freckled tits again. Ech!

  9. Keith UberOlberfan

    Hellz yeah! I can’t wait for him to give worst person in the world to his bosses. LOL LOL LOL! I bet he’ll razz them hard when he’s back on air! LOL! You knew they wouldn’t keep him off long! LOL! he’s a truth speaker! LOL! I hope we keep this day in our hearts that the first amendment won out over republicans! LOL! I bet they will be crying all over this later on today! LOL! November 8th will be Keith Olbermann day, just like Nov 5th is Guy Fawkes day, we need these days to speak out for the heroes that speak out for us! LOL!

  10. wim

    yep, monday morning when nobody is watching.
    ………………THIS IS A HINT?

  11. friendlyfires

    Olbermann’s agent was on the phone with CNN, Fox News and CBS, immediately instigating a secret bidding war. The Facebook petition grew overnight 100xs faster than the Betty White on SNL petition. Not only is Olbermann back on he gets a raise with a NDA concerning whole thing. Too bad they forgot to get me to sign an NDA, too. Whoops!

  12. vcbnvcnc

    Honestly, when do all these people have the time to sit and mindlessly watch TV??? I’m too busy… luckily, I can be doing other things while on the internet.

  13. Mike Walker

    I hear the Fish is on suicide watch.

  14. See Alice

    Keith Who ?

  15. oooaaahhh

    he’s a douche.

  16. itsme.

    Ridiculous. It was a publicity stunt to get his ratings up. All completely contrived. Fortunately, it won’t work. The American public view Olby as a vile wannabe human being, and reject his “ideas”.

  17. Crusty

    Keith Olbermann makes political contributions to Democrats every time he opens his mouth, and it’s never bothered MCNBC before. This sort of unevenhanded justice is completely hypocritical. By any way anyone wants to measure, Olbermann’s duping of a naive television audience does FAR more to affect elections than the three contributions of $2,400 to Democrat candidates. He could give $50,000 to each of them and I wouldn’t care nearly as much about it as I do about his wrong-headed oral bullying of an easily cowed electorate in front of the camera every day.

    • jim x

      While it bores me a bit even to get into this, a) Keith was allegedly suspended for not *telling his bosses* he was contributing, as opposed to just contributing, and b) every single Fox personality is not only giving $ to the GOP – at least 3 of them will be *running* as GOP in 2012.

      So let’s not get ridiculous here.

      Such as, lets see some more breasts.

      • fox

        Since Fox is so biased and every person there is running for the or contributing to the GOP, how come there are over 25 fundraisers at fox for democrats? There are more fundraisers for republicans, but that is because their commentators can do what they want. Unlike a few other crappy networks, there is Fox News and Fox Media. Not everything on Fox is news and they tell you. Some is commentary like Beck.

        Every heard of Colmes? Don’t know how you get more balanced then having an educated person from both sides on.

  18. sin

    The ranting, misinformed Liberal douche is going back on air. So, just how many people actually watch this poser for real news anyway?

    You know you are useless when ESPN fires your ass because of your mouth.

    • freaky

      Hold on, buddy. Don’t insult the douche like that. The douche serves a valuable service to stinky vaginas worldwide. This guy is more of a pimple; he gets really red and then explodes for no good reason.

  19. Jane

    Nothing says ‘punishment’ like an extended weekend.

  20. grobpilot

    Shit. I initially read the title of this thread as “Bukakke Theater”. What a disappointment.

  21. bahaha

    Olbermann tells it like it is. all you O’Reilly vibrator worshipping fucktards can’t stand him simpkly because of that. ps, if you really think the Fox hags are so hot, that just says it all you closet homos

    • Bill O'really

      Yea. Good One fiberal!

      Way to shine through with the typical fiberal ignorance, lack of grammar/ spelling skills, temper tantrum & homophobic tendencies.

      Do you have the proverbial “Horses mouth” smile like your Mom Nancy Pelosi? Oh, and please tell her to DEFINITELY run for minority leader of the House. Nothing can guarantee a 2012 ass whipping like her face and mouth speaking for all the libtards for 2 more years.

      Worked Great for 2010 elections didnt it? HAH!!

    • heynow

      you are a moron.

  22. doogleberg

    He did it for ratings…why it that so hard to figure out?

    Can we please just drop it and move on to nipslips? No more politics…PLEASE!

    Also, grobpilot’s earlier post is awesome.

  23. Ayn Rand's Maggot-Infested Twat

    Nothing to see here, all you inbred conservative fuck-tards can go back to molesting your livestock.

  24. Since you refuse to quit posting your dumbass political opinions on here, this will be my last post. I am not coming to this site anymore. I used to check this site every day too.

  25. He’s what we call in polite circles…..a twatwaffle.

    .

  26. Barney Frank

    A little time on his knees sucking Maddow’s cock and Olbermann is back in prime time baby!

    Hey Olbermann the twin towers are still not rebuilt care to blame Obama for it?

    No I guess not.

  27. Monday night must be free cookie night or something.

  28. Joe Dabb Babbalucci

    What a wimp the top dog at MSNBC is! That was a mere slap on the wrist. I’d have fired the fool. The dog wags the tail.

  29. 1of12

    What, so he has like 12 viewers again?
