Things are so bad over at 'Countdown' with Keith Olbermann...

News

...that he needs to pay guests just to get them on his new Current TV show.

From Cindy Adams's interview with Olbermann in the NY Post:

Being a smaller network, any difficulty in getting A-1 guests?

"It was a concern considering we're starting from scratch, so I decided to formalize guests. Pay them even if it's not much money. Make law professors, nonpolitical people, contributors. We built this in a matter of weeks, but the baseline is we've formalized it so it wouldn't be a problem."

Hopefully he doesn't pay them based on his ratings. They would end up having to pay him.
