Keith doesn't run MSNBC. He never has and he never will. I didn't buy it when it was first mentioned and I didn't buy it when it kept on going.
I had the feeling that his attitude during the conventions was gonna get him in trouble. And it doesn't surprise me that he would say "it was his idea" to make that move. Because you see, nothing is ever Keith's fault but everything is his idea.
"Phil and I have debated this set-up since late winter/early spring (with me saying, 'Are you sure this flies?' and him saying, 'Yes, but let's judge it event by event') and I think we both reached the same point during the RNC," Olbermann said by e-mail.
Of course you did. But at what point did Phil say, "Keith, you've gone too far and we can't have this sort of thing going on. So I'm taking you off of the lead and making you a flunky, along with Chris."
The fact is, Keith can't get along with anybody..and this goes with his live-in. He doesn't know how to maintain that focus on humanity. He doesn't know how to handle his sudden rise to stardom. And he can't function outside his own mind/ego.
One of the main problems with this whole entire situation is his association with Kos. I'm not saying Kos is a bad place but it's not a place for someone like Keith.
People who talk too much never listen. And they sure as hell don't understand. That is Keith in a nutshell.
He's so busy trying to make himself the best anybody has ever encountered but that causes him to miss the aroma of the roses. Which, in turn, feeds the haters and makes them the happiest people on earth.
Hmm, maybe that's what he wants. Misery loves company?
My advice? You need to stop providing everybody with so much information about yourself. Do your job and get away from Kos.
And try try try to give an opinion without being an asshole towards your colleaques.
