Keith Olbermann announced on his show Countdown Friday evening that it would be his last episode. The New York Daily News reported Olbermann said he was "'told' it would be his last show."

The Daily News also had MSNBC's statement on the situation:

"MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC's success and we wish him well in his future endeavors."

Sounds about as peaceful as a health care debate.  May we suggest a beer summit?
