Tomorrow night at 7 PM EDT which is 6 PM CDT Keith Olbermann RETURNS, and has he has been missed during this time of trials and tragedies for the poor and middle class.
It is said you have to be a left leaning fringe progressives to like Olbermann, I reject that, I have always been an moderate independent and in most years I have voted a split ticket. Moderate Indpendent to me means I am pro-choice for women rights but anti abortion PERSONALLY!
My voting though might change if the Repbublicans continue to redo our country so the division in the wealth continues to go the way that history shows happened right before the GREAT Depression. What they don’t get is if you do away with the middle class and you have only the rich and the poor workers who become willing to work for wages their family cannnot live on, get medical treatment or education, eventually you will have the very rich jumping from windows on Wall Street. Think back to before 1929 Hoover and the Republicans and the great division in wealth. It took us over a decade to recover. I am now glad that I sat and listen to my family talk about the great depression, how they survive and how President Franklin Delano Roosevelt saved our nation.
Anyway back to what this is about WELCOME BACK TO OUR HOME Keith Olbermann, I am sure I will shed a few tears as I listen to you tomorrow night.
I encourage each of you to tune in and make sure the 225,000 to 250,000 core viewers that Olbermann has always had are there tomorrow night. Tell a neighbor, friend or family member to tune in. The free clinics… back…. the voice to power no matter the party…. back… the voice for the silent majority…. back the voice to keep Medicare (which Texas just privatize so take notice of Rick Perry as he woos the nation…. back…. the voice that we each have a right to live in our birth land…back …… the voice to save Social Security even as it has been gobbled up by the cost of living…. back.
On DirecTV you can watch Keith Olbermann on channel 358, on Comcast Cable channel 107 Times Warner in New York channel 103 in the rest of the country channel 142 Dish Net Work 196, Verizon Fios channel 192, AT &T U=VERSE channel 189. If you have a different form of cabel you can go to http://current.com/shows/countdown/, on the middle of page on the right is a place to put in your zip code and it will tell you how to find Countdown with Keith Olbermann, WOW doesn’t just saying that sound good… If you have Suddenlink and other cable providers they might not offer Current TV you can mount an email demand to have it added to your cable comapany.

Never underestimate the power of talent and friends that are media savvy. After Al Gore with Keith Olbermann held a phone conference call with reporters on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 to announce the coup of getting Olbermann signed on the dotted line; the war of words began with ratings being thrown around on Wednesday February 9, 2011 in the ongoing fracas.
It appears that Comcast in their take over of that other “network” thought they had Keith Olbermann boxed in with a no-compete FOREVER provision of Olbermann’s termination package including a stipulation that NBC Universal had thought that Olbermann was down and out. The no-compete permanent clause is reported to state; “That agreement also stipulates that Olbermann cannot work for any network considered a competitor.” Current TV was not thought of a competitor and was not included. It appears that the former network thought they had confined Olbermann’s talent to just internet or radio in the future. This is a prime example of never understate real talent and that is what Olbermann has “real talent”.
NBC Universal is also giving Current TV and Olbermann better advertising then money can buy with the war of words that Al Gore seems to be basking in shooting shots back and forth between Gore and MSNBC management.
It is rumored that Olbermann will get stock in the company founded by Gore and other friends as well as “TOTAL CONTROL OF HIS OWN CONTENT”, that will not bode well for MSNBC I predict. It is not much to ask for control of one’s own content when being a news or opinion commentator in television or print media. As far back as Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw both insisted on that in contracts. In fact it appears that Brokaw is still having control of the content of NBC Universal and he might have just led his employer down a slippery slope since he began to gun for Olbermann and worked behind the scenes to push Olbermann out.
You know I hated Current TV when it premiered on DirecTV because it replaced the only international news channel that DirecTV had on air. I am feeling all warm and fuzzy about them today as I am sure many of you do as well.
Per the Hollywood Reporter it is reported that “In a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Olbermann described the show as an improved, amplified and stronger version of the show that I just did at my previous network… …Olbermann said yesterday that he would address his time there at some point in the future. MSNBC had no comment.”
Current TV network has seen the real talent that Olbermann can bring personally but also as the new chief of news officer Olbermann will finally get the control to turn a network around as Tim Russert did for the cable part of NBC News during his life time. Current TV has already set up a production team to work with Olbermann before he premiers in late May on the network.
The Hollywood Reporter went on to report that Al Gore stated that “Among his many talents, he has an eye for what works, what doesn’t ,who would be good on his show and potentially doing other shows. We’re going to let that evolve. He’s always done that. He was more responsible than anyone else by far in making the brand of the network he most recently worked at and. before that he was more responsible than anyone else for Sports Center, the heart of heart of ESPN. So he knows how to do this.”
Al Gore and Current TV did not miss the part of Olbermann being the center tent poll for an MSNBC tent as it appears those programs in prime time begins to dwindle in audience; well all but Rachel Maddow who was mentored by Olbermann. Current Media CEO Mark Rosenthal for Current TV sees an opportunity in what he described as the white space between “scripted reality” found on networks including History and Bravo and the hard news networks including CNN, MSNBC and Fox New Channel.
The L. A. Times has reported that the war of words continue today with Al Gore ruffling the peacock feathers by saying; Current TV, which has about 60 million subscribers in the U.S per Gore who said; “We have more subscribers today than MSNBC had when Keith Olbermann began working for them in 2003”. MSNBC, whose management had clashed repeatedly with Olbermann prior to his exit, cried foul, with a spokesman citing Nielsen Co. data that shows MSNBC had 78.4 million subscribers in 2003. Alerted to the network’s claim, an Olbermann rep fired back by pointing to “The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network & Cable TV Shows, 1946-Present,” a commonly used reference book, which says that only 74% of those subscribers were in the U.S., which could conceivably give Current a slight edge. I don’t know what he’s talking about,” the MSNBC spokesman replied.” DO WHAT??? MSNBC does not know how to read the ratings directories?
I would imagine some top meetings are going on in the penthouse offices of the new Comcast control mega media presence of basically WTF and how did this happen. If Olbermann brings “only” the 300,000 people who supported him with the petition that got him back on MSNBC in 48 hours after they had tried to push him out in November 2010 it will hit MSNBC hard not to mention once the million viewers that Olbermann had find him on Current TV. Remember it was a no no for Olbermann to contribute to political campaigns but the darling of MSNBC management Joe Scarborough had a full backing for donating to Republican campaigns even though Scarborough had given more money and over a longer period of time. Al Gore addressed that during the news announcement saying he believed it was Olbermann’s right to contribute to those candidates he wanted to as long as there is full disclosure Gore stated in his opinion it was a first amendment right
I am having visions of Ted Turner dancing in my head like Christmas here and when the news network in the past said his cable news dream would never make it… Ah that would be CNN today.
I have weaned off of MSNBC and count on Anderson Cooper and his 360 program nightly for my news. I must admit I do still watch Maddow on late night repeats because I like what she says but by doing it this way MSNBC does not get to count the viewer ship as it is not in prime time.
We will be following this carefully with as much attention as we can give to Olbermann and Gore as I predict other blogs will do. Olbermann is not only the voice of progressives but those of us moderate independents that just want to learn and then make up our own minds. Then add that to the free clinics and the real death panels that Olbermann became the voice for and this is going to be fun folks. Gore and Olbermann, wow the 2012 political campaigns seem to be a shining new beacon for the election coverage in our home.
In other updates about Rose Speaks.com, we are changing some of the site to make it more friendly to search for downloads of paperwork on high profile trials we cover and that will be implemented this weekend we hope. However for now you can find the downloads in our Download Section. We have also updated the Michael Jackson downloads yesterday and those can be found on the Jackson page of the site.
I have been sick the last couple of weeks and I so appreciate you all reaching out personally to ask how I was doing, I am always touched that people who will never meet me still care about any turn in my health. As I was sick I watched a lot of television and have been mesmerized by the Egypt youth movement of a revolution and doing it without force but in peaceful means. I will be doing articles of my journey watching this from half a world away in a series called; “Remember my name. If I die here tonight, you will tell our story.”
