Keith Olbermann Does Letterman After Current TV

Keith Olbermann, smiles and wave goodbye to photographers outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, as he leaves after his taping on the David Letterman Show, Tuesday April 3, 2012, in New York City. Olbermann, the news anchor fired late last week from Current TV after only one year, said on Tuesday he had “screwed up really big” – by taking the job at the small TV channel in the first place. In his first public appearance since his split from Current TV, Olbermann told talk show host David Letterman that he considered quitting Current as early as July 2011. “I screwed up really big on this … It’s my fault that it didn’t succeed in the sense that I didn’t think the whole thing through,” Olbermann told Letterman on Tuesday’s “Late Show.”
