Keith Olbermann Can't Find A Job
We've already chronicled Keith Olbermann's difficulties with the opposite sex. Now we can add unemployability to his list of failings.
Keith Olbermann has settled his $50 million lawsuit with Current TV, bringing an end to the almost year-long legal dispute over the outspoken host's dismissal from the liberal news network.He should be thankful that Current TV hired him in the first place. Everybody else already knew how useless and unbearable he was.
The terms of the settlement, which was reported earlier this week, were not released. But two sources familiar with the negotiations now tell POLITICO that during the mediation stage, Olbermann's legal representatives cited his inability to get a job at another network -- a move one source close to the negotiations interpreted as an effort to gain sympathy for Olbermann.
"One of the cards his people played was hardship," the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told POLITICO. "He spent last fall talking to all the major networks, and he couldn't get a job. The idea was, this could be the last money he ever earned."
