Maddow on Olbermann’s Exit

Appearing on "Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday night, Rachel Maddow said of Keith Olbermann's exit: "I know very little about it. All I know is that it was between Keith and the company. It wasn't, it didn't involve any of the rest of us and he was really gracious and nice when he left."

Maher noted that Olbermann had stopped his "Worst Person in the World" segment, then brought it back with the message that "we don't really mean it."

"It really is all downhill then," Maher said. "Stop organizing your life around people who don't get the joke."

More seriously, Maher added of Olbermann, "I always enjoyed his show. I hope he comes back."
