Keith Olbermann: ‘The Show Isn’t About to Be Cancelled’

By kevin Comment

Keith Olbermann fired back again last night on “Countdown” against reports claiming his show is in trouble, including a Page Six article that asked “Has the countown begun for the end of ‘Countdown with Keith Olbermann?'” Olbermann also accused Daily Finance of “cherry-picking” ratings data in its article about his program.

He expanded on those points in a post at DailyKos, where he wrote:

Let me cut to the chase (since this is besides the point, except insomuch as it contradicts the meme): the show isn’t about to be cancelled. It isn’t slumping. MSNBC isn’t worried about it. NBC isn’t worried about it. It is making them a —damned fortune, in fact (and they’d owe me a —damned fortune if they did cancel it, which they aren’t going to).
