Keith Olbermann was notably absent from Current TV’s coverage of tonight’s Iowa caucus results, setting off some speculation that the channel wanted to keep him off the air. This evening, Olbermann himself tweeted: “So as not to mislead: I am informed Countdown will not be on tonight, I must defer on all questions to @JoelHyatt @AlGore and @Current.”

But it turns out the opposite is true, according to what a Current spokesperson told a chatroom on the channel’s website tonight:

“We asked Keith to be the sole anchor and exec producer of our primary and caucus coverage beginning tonight,” the spokesperson wrote at 6:30 p.m. in the chatroom. “Unfortunately, he declined to anchor or participate.”
