Keith Theodore Olbermann (born January 27, 1959) is an American political commentator and writer. Most recently, he was the chief news officer of the Current TV network and the host of the Current TV weeknight political commentary program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, until March 30, 2012, a program he hosted with the same title and a similar format on MSNBC from March 2003 to January 2011. During his time at MSNBC, Olbermann established a niche in cable news commentary, gaining note for his pointed criticism of right-leaning or conservative politicians and public figures. Though he has been described as a 'liberal', he has resisted being labelled politically, stating 'I'm not a liberal. I'm an American'.
