Alec Baldwin might replace Keith Olberman on MSNBC

By brendon January 25, 2011 @ 5:43 PM


Keith Olberman is a prissy little dandy who divided his time on MSNBC between self indulgent temper tantrums and sniveling at the boot of those in power, and it was in this spirit that he left his cushy job on Friday, a job that was paying him 7 million dollars a year in exchange for getting his ass handed to him in the ratings.

One reason he reportedly left was money. He felt underpaid, and probably thinks MSNBC will come crawling back now that he’s flexed his might and shown how irreplaceable he is.


MSNBC is looking to find a new marquee star for its growing brand, and sources tell me their ultimate wish list is topped by none other than Alec Baldwin.
“He’s already part of the NBC family, has a huge fan base and is very respected for his long term passions for politics,” a network source tells me, adding that Alec is very high, perhaps even No. 1, on the wish lists of MSNBC bigwigs.

Even people who don’t agree with Baldwins politics (like me) freely admit he’s smart, funny, and charismatic as all hell, so suffice to say this would be a massive upgrade over that nerdy doofus Olberman. Olberman could have a story about the antidote for the jar of poison I just drank and I’d still just watch Pawn Stars and hope for the best.

    Baldwin will need a gaggle of writers if he wants to give news “analysis”……

    ….unless he sticks to drunkenly cursing out 11 year old girls…..

    …..people don’t go into acting because Engineering or Medicine was too easy…….

    Do you suppose the Worst Person In The World segment will be replaced with Pete’s Schweddy Balls? I have to admit, I’d tune in for that!

    BTW, Team America….greatest political satire movie in history!

    ….also….it’s likely that the 2012 elections will send Baldwin off to France…….

    ….where he was threatening to go the last time American voters showed any sense…..

    …maybe he’ll do a call-in from gay Paree….
