MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced yesterday that Countdown with Keith Olbermann has been renewed for at least the length of Barack Obama's term. He said:
"Keith Olbermann is at the core of MSNBC's current success. Countdown is our signature program and I'm thrilled that we're going to be able to bring it to Keith's loyal viewers for another four year term."
The often incensed and always passionate newscaster, who went on The View yesterday and admitted to not voting as a symbolic gesture of objectivity, will be on board for more of his Special Comments (surely to be creatively engineered after Bush leaves). Olbermann will also play a prominent role in MSNBC's coverage of all major news events. Is this announcement music (or noise) to your ears?
