With ratings slipping and Fox launching a competitive channel, ESPN is willing to take a risk.
They are hiring back Keith Olbermann.
Olbermann who has worn out his welcome at just about everyplace he's worked is batting around the order again.
After being away for 16 years, Olbermann is coming back to ESPN to host a talk show, but this time there's a catch.
Olbermann can not talk about politics.
The NY Times says that in his new deal, Olbermann will be free to discuss matters other than sports, including pop culture and current events, but not politics, the two-year pact specifies.
All we can say to ESPN is ....Good Luck with that.
