Keith Olbermann out at MSNBC

Olbermann abruptly announced his exit on Friday night’s Countdown last night. Olbermann had been the face of the Left-leaning cable news network and had anchored its coverage of major political news events (e.g. the midterm elections). No word on future plans. NBC’s nearly complete merger with COMCAST is reported to have not had anything to do with it…which probably means it did.
