    It’s happened so many times before, maybe it’s no surprise: Current TV fired Keith Olbermann on Friday, announcing that his show would be replaced by a new one featuring former New York governor Eliot Spitzer. Current originally signed Olbermann after he was thrown off of MSNBC’s primetime lineup in 2011 for contributing to Democrats in violation of the network policy. “Current was founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers,” the network said in a statement. "Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.” Olbermann fired back on Twitter, saying he was planning to file a lawsuit against Current.
