Olbermann fired: Are the crosshairs on Maddow now, or Matthews?

Well, isn’t it convenient for Herr Olbermann? Mere hours after a real business takes over NBC, controversial MSNBC host Keith Olbermann has decided to look elsewhere for employment.

It begs the question: Who’s next? Rachel Maddow, or Chris Matthews?

Which one has the crosshairs on them?

Oh, wait.  Those weren’t crosshairs.  They were survey markers.



Truth is, Olbie is probably being a good businessman. He’s seen his ratings. He knows the score. He knows that Comcast is probably already contemplating a new direction for the network, and that new direction doesn’t include wackos like Olbie, Maddow, Matthews, Laurence or anyone else so radically affiliated with the left.

Word is, he’s already contacted ESPN to get his old job back. I hope he isn’t holding his breath.
