The Media Wars Over Keith vs. Current Begin: Olbermann on Letterman
The breakup of news host Keith Olberman and news channel Current TV is already making for nice media-watcher drama.
Last night when Olbermann showed up on David Letterman, Letterman presented his guest with an adjustable business card so he could switch out his employer every time another network gave him the boot--or he left in a huff.
"I screwed up really big on this," said Olbermann. "I thought we could do this, it's my fault that it couldn't succeed."
He then compared himself to a $10 million dollar chandelier, and Current TV to a house incapable of holding that chandelier.
