Milbank Talks About Olbermann

The TV world is a-flutter with the whole Dana Milbank / Keith Olbermann saga (earlier on FishbowlDC: “Olbermann: Milbank Has Left Us“). We heard from Milbank earlier today. See his thoughts after the jump…


Milbank tells us that, in fact, he did not leave “Countdown” because of a dispute over his recent column on “President Obama.”

“The CNN contract was negotiated long before the Obama column,” Milbank tells FishbowlDC. He says that there are “no hard feelings” although he takes exception to Olbermann’s characterization of things on last night’s program (more on that later here on FishbowlDC).

“It’s just that CNN’s a better fit for me and my philosophy of holding all parties to account,” says Milbank. He will be a political analyist for CNN, mostly with Campbell Brown but “wherever they want me.”
