Updated 1/21/2011: Welcome new readers! I removed the old post below and will be updating this post due to the traffic coming in today (2,000 visitors in the last 1/2 hour) on the news of Keith Olbermann's firing/resignation, or whatever the heck you want to call it.
Keith Olbermann is out, today was his last show. Here is what he told viewers earlier tonight, I haven't had time to watch it myself:
Updated 1: Statement from NBC tonight:
MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract. The last broadcast of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" will be this evening. MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC's success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.I watched Olbermann's show tonight and he certainly did not tip his hand as to why the show ended. Who here thinks that Keith Olbermann was fired for implicating Sarah Palin in the Tuscon shooting?
Updated 2: Head over to Jammie Wearing Fool for more.
Updated 3: Legal Insurrection has more video and analysis.
Updated 4: The Other McCain has the obligatory Hitler finds out that Keith Olbermann has been fired video. Go here to watch it.
