Keith Olbermann has acted like a pompous buffoon for years. His show “Countdown,” “Meltdown”or “Down for the Count” or whatever’s ratings usually never wind up on the radar screen and it is no wonder. I know of no one that actually admits watching it was it is almost unwatchable. It is amazing that it is actually on the air.
There may be some truth to the rumor that the US military in GITMO force the prisoners detained there to extract information from them. It is said to work quite well and prisoners would rather sing like canaries rather that be forced to watch one minute of ”Countdown With Keith Olbermann.”
Keith Olbermann’s latest meltdown and ill advised stunt was to write in an email a most unflattering comment about fellow MSNBC cable host, Rita Cosby of “Live & Direct” fame.
“Rita’s nice,” Olbermann wrote to a fan from his MSNBC E-mail account, “but dumber than a suitcase of rocks.”
An MSNBC spokesman didn’t dispute the authenticity of the months-old E-mail, which came to light this week after the recipient shared it with this column on condition of anonymity.
When reached for a comment Rita Cosby said, “Keith got it wrong. I’m not that nice.” Not true at all Rita, you are extremely nice. Having had the opportunity recently to meet and talk with Rita Cosby I learned that she is very nice. She took the time to discuss matters and really have a conversation. Not like many in the MSM business who are a bit standoffish and do not give you the time of day. She was extremely pleasant, cordial and to my surprise interested, really interested in what others had to say.
Rita you are a really nice person and taking the high road just shows to all that class rises to the top while those like Keith Olbermann eventually went up where his ratings already are … down the toilet.
A word of wisdom to Keith Olbermann in the future. Never good to get in a beauty contest with someone when their ratings are superior to your own. Looks like this should be an interesting dilemma for new boss at MSNBC, Dan Abrams.
