UPDATED: Has the Countdown to Olbermann’s Firing Begun?
NBC insiders are starting to sweat Keith Olbermann. But not because of Olby’s politics. Thing is, Olbermann may have become a liability for NBC, literally:
Olbermann…went after former MSNBC general manager Dan Abrams Wednesday night, claiming Abrams had been fired and had a grudge against the network.
The tirade left NBC executives red-faced because Abrams, a lawyer, is still employed by NBC as a news analyst on legal issues.
Anyone who’s ever wondered about Olby’s smarts or sanity can now stop. Never go after a lawyer. Never.
