It was announced Tuesday that Alec Baldwin, after a brief suspension, would not be returning to MSNBC to resume his weekly program. Maybe he'll do something with another former MSNBCer.
Shortly after the announcement was made official by MSNBC and Baldwin's team, Keith Olbermann, who also acrimoniously parted ways with MSNBC in 2011, commented on Twitter. "A well-oiled machine there," he said sarcastically. "I've always said that."
Baldwin replied back, "DM."
DM is generally understood to be shorthand to alert someone they have been sent a direct message, which is not visible to others.
Baldwin's separation from MSNBC comes just after he was suspended by the liberal cable channel for hurling an anti-gay insult at a photographer out of anger. Baldwin denies that he said anything anti-gay and also apologized for his actions in The Huffington Post.
Olbermann is now a sports anchor at ESPN2.
