From the desk of Howard Kurtz: Bring Keith Olbermann back to ESPN

Editor's note: Howard Kurtz is the host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" and is Newsweek's Washington bureau chief. He is also a contributor to the website Daily Download.

(CNN) - Keith Olbermann - formerly of MSNBC, formerly of Current TV, formerly of Fox, formerly of ESPN - wants back in the game.

More to the point, he wants to return to his sports roots by reuniting with ESPN.

Now it would be easy to torpedo that idea by noting that Olbermann has burned bridges everywhere he has worked and could inflame things back at ESPN.

But I won't. Instead, I'm going to lead a chant: Let's Go Keith!!

    An interesting dialogue is value comment. I feel that it's best to write more on this topic, it won't be a taboo topic however typically persons are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    Olbermann back to ESPN! Clearly he has a following. He probably will just get fried or just quit anyway.

    March 10 one of the topics was ombudsman & Mr. Kurtz said he acted as ombudsman for Cnn. On Thurs. March 8, Wolf Blitzer said early in his show, The Situation Room, that Alan Dershowitz would be coming on right after the commercial & 45 minutes later he still hadn't been on but would be seen in the next hour. I was enraged & would love to hear a discussion regarding the misinformation given by news programs on when various topics would be discussed. As for as Wolf Blitzer, I have had enough of his misinformation.

    It is universally known that Keith "gof### your mother" Olbermann is impossible to work with. He treats his work colleagues like sewage. Just ask the female employee at ESPN who was reduced to tears. In short, Howard, have you lost your mind? Olbermann has nobody but himself to blame for his unemployment problem.
