Olbermann Comments on Povich Move…

Keith Olbermann tweeted the following on Izzy Povich becoming Senior EP for O’Donnel’s show…

BTW let’s nip in the bud the latest conspiracy theory being pushed tonight by Murdoch about my EP leaving for Lawrence’s new show.

My EP got a PROMOTION to a job that doesn’t exist on Countdown: Senior EP, developing show from scratch. Anybody saying otherwise is lying

What exactly is Olbermann referring to about “being pushed tonight by Murdoch”? Did someone note the story on FNC like O’Reilly?

  1. I didn’t hear any mention of it at all on fnc.

  2. Maybe something that will appear tomorrow in The Post but they called for comment on tonight?

    Typical KO trying to blame FOX for his problems.

    Odds are he’s talking about Steve K from Mediaite (as already highlighted by J$). I think I saw Steve again on with Megyn today, and in KO’s little world, anyone who disagrees with him and/or has appeared on FNC, is controlled by Murdoch.

    I didn’t know anybody except a few progressives even watched KO. He,s so over the top and confused. He might be a danger to himself or worst, to someone else.

  6. Typical KO trying to blame FOX for his problems.

    And, what exactly are his “problems“? Random people on blogs are theorizing that his show is in trouble because an EP left. That’s not his problem, especially since it was never a problem to begin with. It’s more on the basis of his relentless haters drumming up BS because they desperately want him to go away. Their desperation is funny, though, since everybody gets on him about his low ratings and that he is irrelevant. Which begs the question: if he is so irrelevant, and his ratings are so terrible, why don’t people just ignore him and stop their constant nagging?

    …anyone who disagrees with him and/or has appeared on FNC, is controlled by Murdoch.

    That’s an interesting spin to put on it, particularly when many people who go on FNC also appear on MSNBC and his program, as well. So, your logic on that doesn’t make too much sense.

    A few progressives? Try a few million, instead.

    It’d be nice if a few more would come around. It’s so bad, people here think I’m a liberal..

  8. It was Page Six!

    What people? The guy only talks to people who agree with him, and usually the same 5 or 6 folks. Who, specifically, are you talking about?
