Olbermann Says He Hasn’t Watched MSNBC Since 2009; He Left Network in 2011

Keith Olbermann rather infamously left MSNBC in 2011, and hasn’t looked back, though he has taken a number of potshots at the network since he’s left. And now, it turns out, not only has he not bothered to watch his former network since he left, but he actually stopped watching it while he was still on it.

Talking Points Memo reached out to Olbermann to ask him for his thoughts on a segment on Thursday’s Morning Joe about junk food (in which Mika Brzezinski made a show of dumping junk food in the trash), and Olbermann responded by saying he hasn’t watched MSNBC in a long time.

“I don’t know anything about this as I’ve never watched [Joe] Scarborough’s shows and I stopped watching msnbc in 2009.”

Olbermann left MSNBC in January 2011.
