In his own woods is a ten million dollar chandelier.
Looking for a mansion.
To be hung in.
It I can't all of of course was the host of a current TV show foremost of an MSNBC -- former host of the fox sports show.
Former host of a lot of things and is being -- by all of those companies current TV the latest to fire him and now he is taking court action Dennis Neil from the fabulous Fox Business Network yeah.
Michael it is here.
Apparently the first time in all of the big bad -- he's had this is the first time is actually gone to court filing a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday now his.
Contract is valued at five years fifty million dollars.
Which did not stop him from seeking up to seventy million dollars in damages.
For a effort for getting fired and it describes current TV is I kind of Wayne's world -- better than an amateur cable access channel that says that up.
It says it current.
I had dysfunction the -- -- let users nationwide put out on set during the show news feed went down when it -- guests on live satellite video -- got cut off.
His -- didn't -- script froze in teleprompters forcing over into to add live for significant periods of about time well that's just -- what fresh hell is this -- how dare they do this in short it's the kind of miscues.
And mishaps -- -- that happen at every cable news show especially on new brand new shows.
Current TV is a put up a public response to an expected to file so I counter complaint and they actually mentioned that.
We hope noble realizes that once -- in -- -- that to show up for.
It brotherly -- because I gave us nineteen of 41 days at work the first two months of the year.
He's being a bit of a primadonna.
And a scrappy -- it doesn't understand it can all learn a prima -- actually that's never having said that we'll continue to.
This is going to be that uses.
It's not the most important story and -- dialogue have a -- awaited the juiciest I visited us.
Law to of scuttlebutt about the kind of behavior is old woman is indulged in -- many -- -- right but let's not let's not -- current TV Al Gore and -- I had out of -- completely either they remember they can both be wrong.
And to me Howard Kurtz -- morning out of sort of amusing little passage of Olbermann finally -- said you know the defendant -- -- this -- it does CEO of the of the network.
It made no attempt to force teaming and you know romancing -- and so there's this funny how they're getting unbelievably detailed as to how everybody and everything -- everybody.
This is liberal on liberal crime mrs.
Obama's people say that there had been gore and his co-founder -- Dylan -- masquerading as.
As media executives.
And this is current TV's in the guy intelligence is a little diva who ran through eight -- services the but I also don't -- recurrence of his I was upset that a driver actually -- -- you don't necessarily know -- well until I guess.
I mean only Rush Limbaugh gains from a bright it's going to be at 10 o'clock Mike Thomas says.
This current TV referred to.
What is that.
The opposite but I'd love did you win all woman was on Letterman the other night.
And referred to himself as a ten million dollar chandelier without a mention to -- it won't what kind of ego does that every.
The brightest bulb -- the -- -- -- -- -- Miami and dare we say this -- limousine -- -- -- run -- I mean I mean yeah that's right they Obama's shift out of his salary as a as a calling card for -- how important how great is this is not exactly fighting for the people don't.
One could -- -- showing -- current in the next six months two quarters -- do or die time.
If current ratings fall below a certain minimum level Time Warner which accounts for twelve million -- sixty million -- -- time what I can say you know what we can.
-- -- from the network and right now current -- twelve cents per subscriber for the sixty million -- roughly reports are.
That compares with MSNBC was -- eight times as many viewers.
And talking only about 2530%.
More than current TV charges so so there -- there is nothing current.
We want to -- that he he got to cut it down three cents a force that can what is this.
-- when we had air America liberal radio organizer nation the current TV a liberal TV organization what does it say about these that they can't succeed -- less like MSNBC they have the backing of have a huge network well -- and don't -- -- yes you know it is for a probably liberals anybody and they they get endless funded government and they may well be the case at the bit liberal for profit media cut its own throat -- left wing when they.
Subsidize and then defended endlessly -- subset to the government funded version of themselves.
Possibly the problem may be that.
Liberal TV or liberal news channel it.
With the mainstream media is just kind of redundant phrase.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Torching of fellow liberal -- so -- is what does Keith Olbermann show up next -- you don't left Nickelodeon.
President -- -- -- he's gone back twice he would back off ESPN wants.
I think you -- back to an -- you know Rupert Murdoch was quoted as saying you know I fired from fox sports he's crazy.
But the weird thing is.
You know journalism news this is the one place where you can -- like good -- And somebody some morals say.
I wanna see that guy on television's how I got I -- they wanted it -- reality of YouTube and talk radio everything else is nobody really -- waiting right here -- is always someplace read ago in the media and you can keep him alive until people forget -- cure that Harry back and all right.
