So yesterday the hardworking staff wrote this:
Who Shot Keith Olbermann?
To which splendid reader Laurence Glavin responded:
Who cares? The Huffington Post story got 28,000 comments. Oh, and I care …a lot.
The hardworking staff believes he’s referring to this piece, which, eight hours later, has almost 35,000 comments. Representative samples:
Then again, there’s this on HuffPo:
Olbermann Gone. Who Cares?
Well, Laurence for one.
But not me for two.
Olbermann jumped the shark during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary with his not-so-special comment about Hillary Clinton.
From there, Olbermann became a caricature: The proverbial self-made man who worships his creator.
After exiting MSNBC, he’ll land somewhere. But he doesn’t seem to be in a good place.
