Keith Olbermann appeared on 'The David Letterman Show' airing out the dirty laundry between him and his former employer, Current TV. He admits he played a role in his termination, but not without sarcasm. CBS has Olbermann’s remarks.

 

“I screwed up really big on this. Let’s just start there. I thought we could do this. it’s my fault that it didn’t succeed in the sense that I didn’t think the whole thing through.”

 

In a statement on Current TV’s website, the company explains why it broke ties with Olbermann- saying the company was founded on the values of

 

 “...respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”

 

While Olbermann may not have thought through his contract with Current TV, he has given a lot of thought to the lawsuit he plans to file.

 

“Remember the lawyer in the Conan case? Those people across the way. Remember the NBC people, they got a lawyer involved. She’s my lawyer.”

 

According to the Chicago Suntimes, Conan O’Brien’s lawsuit against NBC over The Tonight Show ended with a reported 45 million dollar settlement for O’Brien. No matter how Olbermann’s lawsuit ends, critics are still questioning what’s next for the sharp talking tv host.

 

“Is there anywhere else Olbermann can go or is this sort of it for television? So let’s count this out here. ESPN, FOX Sports, MSNBC, Current TV. You know maybe Keith Olbermann doesn’t need tv.”

 

Even if Olbermann is unable to find a new home with another company, The Daily Beast says he still has a chance to have his voice heard - comparing Olbermann’s tv history with another controversial figure.

 

“One thing that we’ve seen so far is that Glenn Beck went a different route after leaving not so peacefully from his former news home. He is now self employed and running his own eponymous media brand and doing very well.”
