Olbermann, Patrick Reminisce About Co-Hosting "SportsCenter" During N.Y. Event
Published April 6, 2012
CURRENT EVENTS: Olbermann referenced his recent acrimonious departure from Current TV with several quips, including one where he compared his decision to move to ESPN2 at its launch with his decision to accept a job at Current TV. "As evidenced by my recent employment, I'm easily led," he said. He took another veiled shot at Current TV later, also when he was speaking of his move to ESPN2. Olbermann: "It was crazy that they wanted to move the young people we had over to ESPN2. That never works. You can never move an audience." He said Current TV allegations that he complained about drivers who tried to talk with him were "nonsense." He said he was known for tipping the drivers, adding, "Apparently, I was the only one to do so." Olbermann added that he was not using a driver last night. He took the E train to the event and planned to walk home.
