Keith Olbermann, former host of MSNBC’s “Countdown,” escaped the recent purge of on-air talent there by splitting with the cable news network in 2011 and eventually landing at ESPN. Somehow, though, the acerbic host managed to find a way to earn himself a week’s suspension from the sports network (and a spot on Twitter’s trending topics) for his comments about Penn State University.
Among his Twitter gems: “PSU students are pitiful because they’re PSU students — period.” Did we mention the original topic of discussion was students raising millions for pediatric research?
Olbermann eventually did apologize and acknowledge the good work being done by Penn State students.
No! There are only so many networks.
