KEITH OLBERMANN AT ESPN IS JUST PITIFUL

First I will say that I have never been a fan of Keith Olbermann.  Olbermann at best is just another media type that looks for attention no matter as to who it may involve.  Penn State students held their annual Thon event in which students will dance all weekend to raise money for pediatric cancer.
This annual event started in 1977 and has raised 127 million dollars to aid in the fight against pediatric cancer.  This past weekend the students raised 13 million dollars for  this years campaign.
The students were quite proud of their efforts and shared their accomplishments on Twitter.  Then along comes Olbermann with his own tweets in which he was critical of the fund raiser and referred to the Penn State students as being "pitiful"  .One can only wonder what Olbermann could possibly have against a 38 year old tradition that raises money for children suffering from cancer.  Olbermann is employed by ESPN, so we have to wonder what they think of one of their employees who is critical of a cancer fund raiser.  After all, ESPN is a major supporter of the Jimmy Vee foundation for cancer research and have their annual big drive to promote their involvement.  I wonder if Olbermann is also critical of his employer when this takes place,  ESPN has suspended Olbermann from doing his shows for one week due to his criticisms of the Penn State fund raiser.  Seriously, one week is not sufficient.  Olbermann should have been fired, since he truly offers nothing to humanity.

I saw this jackass's comments in USAToday online the other day. Journalism suffered a real blow that day b/c I don't know how this guy ever made

Does anyone know if he got rejected by PennsState? His bitterness sounds like rejection, unless he's just a bitter person naturally

Keith Olbermann could be a dragon and that is why he is so mad

HAHA I like the dragon theory al though I think with his case its more just a cry for attention after being on espn's back up network espn2

its more than just this guys opinion of Penn State, its the way he treats other people. Thankfully I DO NOT work for #ESPN I work for a company where putting people down for where they go to school and publicly dismissing a great cause would get you a lot more than a couple days suspension. That's pretty pathetic

He makes a living from his insults. I'm not saying its a good thing but isn't that what he's known for? ESPN apparently supports anything that will get attention
