Is Keith Destroying MSNBC?

Two nights in a row Keith has managed to piss off his co-workers. And, it seems, he's doing it on purpose. This isn't about the convention anymore. It's about how Keith can make MSNBC look like the worse news organization out there in Denver land.
Why is he taking this route? I use to think he had a good business mind but after the past two nights I can't think that anymore.
His "star" is going to burn out or be put out if he continues making an ass out of himself AND out of MSNBC. This has gone way beyond unprofessionalism. In fact, it's jumped right into adolescent behavior and childish antics.
But like driving by a bad car accident you can't help but watch the destruction.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

Of course I'm doing this on purpose. Do you have any idea how much I resent having to share the stage with these idiots? I want them all eliminated until I am the sole anchor. The way things are going this task will be accomplished in another 24 hours or so.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

In the beginning at MSNBC Keith Olbermann the brain was in charge. Now it's being lead by me, the superego. What you see emerging is simply my ego roaring as I declare myself Alpha Male at MSNBC. This little convention isn't about Obama or Hillary or the Democrats. It's about me. And so far, it's going very well for me as I put my MSNBC underlings firmly in their place: beneath my big giant size shoes. Hee hee.

It's clear from their on-air behavior that they all detest each other. Something is wrong somewhere and I'm sure a lot of it probably stems from Keith who has rather a history with these kinds of things.

Keith is whining at the Daily Kos, again. All about how it's ridiculous that anyone could even think of having Brokaw banned. No mention of the dust up between him and Scar or him and Tweety. That silence speaks volumes.

You're right Marinara, he is whining.
I don't understand why he doesn't just leave all this to his own PR person. Isn't that what she's getting paid for?

KOE, if he continues down this path of destruction he will be the only one left at MSNBC.
Maybe that's what he wants.

Make it 3. Last night he could be heard saying on an open mike "wrap it up" when a GOP flunkie was speaking. It's like watching a slow-motion train wreck. Is there no one in charge at MSNBC?

He has compared himself to a child after all. I guess he wasn't lying.

You're right. I remember that. And he thought it was funny.

Donna, I think I heard him say something not so nice about Brian Williams yesterday too.
He said something about Brian having to have his way in the Nightly News, or something of that nature. But it wasn't a nice remark.

Keith is really being a dick lately.

We're apparently in the minority where Keith's rudeness is concerned. His fan base think he's the best thing ever because he's rude to Scarborough a Republican and Matthews who they don't like to begin with. And in so far as his being rude to his coworkers they deserved it I guess.
