MRC President Brent Bozell Statement on MSNBC's Firing of Keith Olbermann

Earlier today, Media Research Center President and Founder Brent Bozell released the following statement on MSNBC's firing Keith Olbermann:

"It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Olbermann was a failure because he was vicious, insulting and off-the-charts liberal. And they replaced him with Lawrence O'Donnell, who is Olbermann but without talent. It is absolutely guaranteed that MSNBC will sink even lower. This network is clueless."
