Keith Olbermann

Amazing and Moving

In a Special Comment, Countdown’s Keith Olbermann shares his personal experience with a real life 'death panel' situation and scorns the unfairness of health insurance in America.

Keith Olbermann, known for his strong opinions and eloquent but emotional responses to the political issues of the day, used his last minutes on COUNTDOWN, his MSNBC program, to deliver a very difficult but heartfelt discussion of his father's pesonal difficulties during a long hospitalization that started with surgery and ended up with a litany of infections due to improper care. Olbermann began by saying, "Last Friday night, my father asked me to kill him."

Olbermann said his hospitalized father had not awoken since that day and that he is prepared for the possibility his father will not recover. "If he does not recover you will not see me here for a while," Olbermann announced.

His father has just died...
