Have I seen the last of Keith Olbermann on television? After his recent behavior, I’m starting to wonder this very question.
Keith exchanged tweets over Penn State’s dance marathon, which raises millions for pediatric cancer. The exchange, I must admit, didn’t make KO look very good at all. ESPN subsequently suspended Olbermann for the rest of the week, and Keith went to Twitter to apologize for what he himself called childish behavior.
I’ve been a fan of his since his ESPN days with Dan Patrick and his sortie into the news business on MSNBC. (I always thought MSNBC canned him for being too conservative if you can believe that. He wasn’t afraid of going after Hillary Clinton or President Obama as he did George W. Bush.) He is no stranger to controversy wherever he goes, and not afraid of making stands and putting his job on the line in ways no reporters or anchors dare do these days.
I don’t know. I think I just may have witnessed Olbermann’s Waterloo with all of you. Making negative comments about a university raising money for cancer is going to be a tough pill to swallow for many.
