Rosie posted a video blog today about her near-deal with MSNBC. In it, she said they were very close but things fell apart "in the bottom of the ninth inning." She also called Keith Olbermann's Countdown "the best news show on TV." Transcript of the MSNBC-relevant part and video below:
OK, I'm gonna answer some blog questions. You heard the big whole MSNBC thing. Listen, it's alright. You gotta believe. What happens is supposed to happen. We were in the bottom of the ninth inning. We were almost there, the game was almost over, and no. It's OK, 'cause I'm not quite sure that a pundit would've been the best thing for me, but who knows? I was willing to maybe try, but just as well.
And hey, Keith Olbermann, the best news show on TV. If you're only gonna watch one, watch that guy. Important stuff he's saying every night. Bravo, Keith Olbermann."
