It should be noted that Moore also is "contributor" on Countdown With Keith Olbermann; he's being paid via a donation to charity, Olbermann recently told The Hollywood Reporter. 

He later added in another tweet that his first show also will feature guest Markos Moulitsas, founder and publisher of Daily Kos, a blog that focuses on liberal and Democratic Party politics. He is also a weekly columnist at the D.C.-based newspaper The Hill and a contributing columnist at Newsweek. Moulitsas also is a contributor to the Olbermann show.

Olbermann's Current TV show debuts at 8 p.m. Monday.

In a spot ad recently released by Current TV, Olbermann told viewers that he won't be censored on his new show. [Watch the clip here.]

“For every story there is a flurry of heavily biased, corporate-sponsored spin that can distract even the most engaged viewer,” Olbermann says in the ad -- while trying to avoid a graphic attempting to censor him. “And every day we’re all left with a bit less clarity … until now.”

Olbermann abruptly exited MSNBC in January but is keeping his same time slot.
