What’s the buzz on Twitter about the end of Keith Olbermann’s show, ‘Countdown’? On Friday, January 22 the liberal TV personality announced that it was the last edition of the long-running show. Immediately after he went off air, MSNBC issued a bland statement about his exit and Twitter exploded with opinions and speculation.
Olbermann was about halfway through a four-year, $30 million contract. Many seem to think that his departure is directly connected to Comcast taking control of NBC next week.
The buzz on Twitter:
