Keith Olbermann, Titan of Twitter, Goes Looking For A Job On TV

This is complicated by the fact that he's burned his bridges with virtually every network he's worked for... which is most of them.

So he's casting a wide net. Including with cable networks that don't even do any kind of news, like... AMC.

You might suspect that Olbermann would be steering clear of NBC Universal in his job hunt, given his acrimonious history with that company, and you’d be right, at least as far as I’ve heard. Among the networks he’s approached are ones owned by Viacom and AMC Networks, two conglomerates he has yet to quarrel with.

8 I think I said this on an earlier thread, but Olberdouche clearly assumed he'd have another job lined up well before the election. His ego doubtless convinced him that he'd have news outlets banging down his door, desperate for his Edward R. Murrow-esque gravitas to anchor their election coverage. Now that we're less than two weeks away and he hasn't gotten an offer yet, he's starting to get desperate.

I love it. It's like candy. Gimme gimme gimme.

12 Please, please, if any of you can think of a job for me, just tell me! I pitched a show to TLC where I slay global warming, literally slay it with a sword, but they passed. To AMC I pitched a show where I comment on comic books with that dwarf in glasses. I even pitched an idea to LOGO where I date random homeless people. OH PLEASE HELP ME!

17 I've "talked" to him on twitter before. And by talked I mean I retweeted something someone said about him and he went on a four or five tweet rant in which he basically called me a fascist and told me to kill myself. I couldn't respond because I was laughing so hard.

18 When Mitt Romney was heading Bain Capital, an employee asked for time off because his daughter had gone missing in NYC. (And you have some idea of what that can mean.)

So, did this cold, distant, greedy One Percenter grant the man's request? NO!!!

Instead, he shut down Bain, flew his thirty employees to NYC where he set up a command post, canvassed the city and distributed tens of thousands of flyers. Within two weeks the man had his daughter back.

Can't speak for you, but this is the kind of man I want occupying the Oval Office, not some petulant man-child with no resume who pouts and sneers as he redistributes America's wealth and power to the rest of the world and who lets his national security staff sit idly by watching live video of 7 hours of attacks on four Americans while doing NOTHING to save any of them with the military assets at his ready command.

Then on to Vegas!

Mitt Romney will not tell that story about himself. Barack Obama would -- repeatedly -- but has no story to tell.

Better yet, he could play a really, REALLY whiny survivor; a guy who was a celebrity newscaster before the apocalypse. After two or three episodes, when the rest of the survivors are in a tight spot and desperate to escape, one of them can slit Keefum's Achilles tendons and toss him off the back of a truck to distract the ravening zombie horde.

His final words would be a long wail as the Walkers descend. "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AAAAAAAAAAAAM!"

Thats funny! But it would be better if Sarah Palin played the moderator like Blondie does for The Five. Those guys' head would explode in 3 episodes and the planet would be relieved of the ugliness they have to offer.

143 I guess it's not a "job" exactly, but if he needs money and screen time that badly, I'm sure someone is willing to sue him and have the case heard by Judge Judy. I'd kind of like to see that.

Mr. Olbermann,

I'd like to thank you for your application for our third shift news announcer, Level C, and I have reviewed your intriguing ideas for the 2200-0600 shift. However, calling it the Keith Olbermann News Night will not work with our current format of contemporary music. Additionally, the pay rate of a Level C News announcer is $14.93 to $18.17, and as such, your request for $15.000,000.00 per year is not within the budgeted range for this position. Also, Ms. Marlowe wishes to remindyou that she has a restraining order against any further contact with her. Any further attempts to "interview" her will be met with the appropriate armed response.

We again thank you for your interest, and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors outside of, and far fromthe States of Ohio and Kentucky. Please do not contact us ever again.

Cincinnati, Ohio
