Keith Olbermann will not co-host the special edition of “Countdown” on MSNBC tonight as previously announced. Instead, Chris Matthews will host a special “Hardball” with Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie.
Last evening, Olbermann delivered this difficult special comment, which he began by saying, “Last Friday night, my father asked me to kill him.”
Olbermann said his hospitalized father had not awoken since that day and that he is prepared for the possibility his father will not recover. “If he does not recover you will not see me here for a while,” Olbermann said. We’re told he is with his father this afternoon. Video below:
