KO new show 'The Closer': related info

Postby Marie » Mon Sep 12, 2016 7:49 am

'The Closer': KO debuts new show on GQ.com.

From Politico:
KEITH OLBERMANN has a new show, after more than a year away from the camera.

It’s not on a cable network this time, but rather in the form of a web series for GQ, where Olbermann has been named “special correspondent.” The bi-weekly series is called The Closer with Keith Olbermann and is scheduled to debut 8 a.m. tomorrow on gq.com.

“He’ll be providing commentary on the election, with the flexibility to delve into other timely issues when relevant,” a GQ rep told Morning Media.

During an appearance on The View back in March, Olbermann stoked speculation by announcing he was “coming out of retirement” following his reportedly amicable split with ESPN last year. But aside from rumors that he’d been in talks about a possible return to MSNBC, there’s been no official career news until now. One wonders what else the veteran TV host and liberal firebrand might have up his sleeve -- and what he’ll have to say about Donald Trump tomorrow.

Can anyone identify whose bust is shown in the background? We know these things don't happen by chance. :-)

Keith Olbermann bringing political commentary to GQ
AP
Sep. 12, 2016

YOU DIDN'T EXPECT Keith Olbermann to keep quiet during the last two months of a presidential campaign involving Donald Trump, did you?

GQ magazine said Monday that it has named the former MSNBC host as a special correspondent. Starting Tuesday, Olbermann will air a web series on GQ.com twice a week on the 2016 election and other news topics.

Olbermann has been off TV since leaving ESPN for the second time.

GQ released a "teaser" video of Olbermann at a desk made to appear it was in the Oval Office, saying Trump could end up someplace looking like this.

"Not if I can help it," Olbermann said.

Huh, there was some stuff in there I hadn't heard, and I thought I'd heard everything about this guy already!

Re the presentation: the stage is kinda bare, which I guess would be okay if it weren't for the echo in the studio. PLEASE do something to mitigate that. Also, I think it would have been crisper to cut it off after "any questions?" -- rather than leave the camera on Keith gathering his script sheets.

Other than that, wow -- just wow.

Looks like Lincoln.

There's pictures of a Lincoln bust behind Nixon and Obama in the Oval Office, and that's what Keith is representing there.

After you mentioned it, I went and looked again, and it does look like Lincoln! Maybe just was the angle. Image

Keith did what only Keith seems to have the courage to do by listing and exposing all the crazy stuff the right have been willing to accept from Trump. So fantastic to see him again!
