UPDATE: Keith comes out with official statement, "looks forward" to returning on Tuesday  
Almost 3 days after the fallout from his indefinite suspension, Keith Olbermann has finally come out with his official statement on the suspension. He posted his statement on Scribd and linked in his latest tweet. You can read the official statement in full here.

In the statement, he thanked his loyal viewers of Countdown "for the honor of your extraordinary and ground-rattling support." He also apologized to viewers "for having precipitated such anxiety and unnecessary drama." He asserted that he was suspended without a proper hearing and was only informed of his suspension through the media.

But the most important line of his statement was the last, in which he said that he "looks forward to rejoining you on Countdown on Tuesday," implying that his "indefinite suspension" might be short-lived after all. Stay tuned for updates.
