Keith Olbermann Abruptly Leaves MSNBC

Without warning to his audience or colleagues, Keith Olbermann aired his last episode of Countdown on MSNBC tonight. Here’s video of his farewell. No official reason was given other than his contract was up, but many speculate his abrupt departure is related to Comcast’s takeover of NBC Universal. Lawrence O’Donnell will take over the time slot.
