(Newser) – Keith Olbermann will appear on David Letterman's show next week, giving him a chance to explain his side of the story and/or take some more public jabs at his former bosses at Current TV. Olbermann, who got fired yesterday amid a feud with network founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, is scheduled to appear on Tuesday, notes the Hollywood Reporter. If the first day's volleys are any indication—basically, 'You're ethically challenged' and 'No, you are'—this could be a long and nasty fight.
