In January, Current TV's Madonna (Keith Olbermann) bragged about supposedly giving "promotions" to the employees that followed him to Current from MSNBC. I wrote that there is no way a step down like that could be considered a promotion.
Current TV is terrible. And a report from "Newsweek" suggests even Olbermann thinks so:
Accustomed to the flashy graphics and slick broadcasts of MSNBC, Olbermann balked at the cheap sets and lo-fi production values at the scrappy Current. Ensconced in his New York office, the star ignored emails from the network’s West Coast executives. He wanted them to invest more on the technical side, and he wanted more authority in other areas of the network, including personnel decisions. He was also upset about his car service.
And Olbermann has only been at Current for eight months. Remember to keep Al Gore in your thoughts and prayers.
