So there is just no way the whole Keith Olbermann–Current TV feud will end nicely now, is there? Al Gore’s channel filed a countersuit against Olbermann, accusing the man once considered to be the network’s star of unprofessional behavior. The suit alleges Olbermann threw a mug on the set and also took off, unexcused, 19 out of 41 workdays in January and February. Olbermann filed a lawsuit on Thursday seeking up to $70 million in damages for wrongful termination.
