Yes, it’s true. Now the 17 people who watch “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will have to find another source for sputtering, unsubstantiated vitriol.

Chris Matthews: “Chris Matthews.”
Every “Hardball” guest ever: “Chri-”
Chris Matthews: “OH, COME ON! DON’T SIT THERE AND DENY THAT MICHELE BACHMANN IS A ZOMBIE NUT JOB!”
