OLBERMANN ATTACKS: Al Gore's Network Is A Penny-Pinching, Incompetent Clown Show

•, Henry Blodget
 Keith Olbermann's team has wasted no time getting their version of his latest network departure into the public realm.

First, Olbermann himself exploded on Twitter less than an hour after getting fired, accusing Current TV bosses Al Gore and Joel Hyatt of being incompetent and dishonest and vowing to sue them.

And now, Olbermann's team have apparently spent considerable time with Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast, showing Kurtz a trail of emails designed to prove their case.

This aggressive promotion effort has, thus far, been effective: Two days after the show host was canned, it's Al Gore's TV network, Current TV, that is on the defensive.

Olbermann's aggressive outreach has also obscured a key point:

Olbermann's ratings on Current TV were horrible.

And it's hard to see how Olbermann doesn't bear a big portion of the blame for that.
