Tom Brokaw Thinks MSNBC Will Be Just Fine Without Keith Olbermann


Today in diminishing Keith Olbermann news. 

Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw — never a fan of Olbermann or the ‘news’ role he played at MSNBC especially during election coverage — told the Chicago Tribune that no one is irreplaceable.

“All of our component parts — NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC — are much bigger than one player, and I include myself in that…If I went away tomorrow, NBC News would still be the dominant news division in America. There ain’t none of us who is irreplaceable.”

Meanwhile, Page Six reports that Ed Schultz wept tears of joy when he heard the Olby was departing.  Schultz denies the tears:  “You have me confused with John Boehner.”
