Former MSNBC and Current TV “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann took a jab at his former employer MSNBC and colleague at that network on Tuesday after hearing the news MSNBC was undergoing a ratings slump.

Olbermann was asked if his comments on Twitter about MSNBC’s ratings slide were a criticism of Maddow.

“It’s about the collapse of that network. I don’t know anything about her any more; she hasn’t bothered to speak to me since I left,” he replied.

Many have questioned Maddow’s reaction to Olbermann’s since-exit from MSNBC. Olbermann is often credited with getting Maddow a primetime slot on the left-leaning cable news network.
