Apparently, Keith Olbermann is not nearly as unhappy about his job as some people would make him out to be. Following some reports claiming that the anchor was unhappy with Current TV — which was amplified by claims that the network was not utilizing him to the fullest for Iowa caucus coverage — the host himself took to Twitter to take issue with a report from the New York Times:
“I’ve just replied to @BrianStelter as follows: anybody who describes my disposition towards Current as ‘disgruntled’ is either uninformed, working from a personal agenda, wrong – or all of the above.”
Keith first arrived at Current TV earlier this year, and delivered some strong ratings for a network that has been by and large out of the spotlight. However, the numbers have slipped since then thanks to competition from MSNBC — though his edition of “Countdown” is still to be considered a success.
Do you anticipate Olbermann being used extensively throughout this political season?
