Keith Olbermann Launches Fok News Channel


Former MSNBC "Countdown" host Keith Olbermann has launched Fok News Channel, a Web site called the "official not-for-profit blog of Keith Olbermann." FOK stands for Friends of Keith even if it might remind you of another news cable outlet.

The first post for FOK News was a blog style reworking of the popular "Countdown" segment titled "Worst Persons in the World." The post called out cable news host Bill O'Reilly, Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia and "The would-be Mayor of Jacksonville, Florida" Mike Hogan as the worst people of the day.

Other posts show Olbermann covering the 1999 Academy Awards for the Los Angeles Times and a photo of the nearly 70,000 protesters that converged on to the capital of Wisconsin last week that was not carried by the major networks.

Take a peek at the FOK News Channel.

Here's one of the first Worst Person segments on MSNBC that eventually became a daily feature on Countdown.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
