UPDATE: Olbermann suspended for Dem contributions – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs.
Apparently you’re allowed to vocally support the Dems, and carry their water on MSNBC, but if you back it up with your own money, you get the Boot.
MSNBC host Keith Olberman, who never met a leftie he didn’t like, is suspended indefinitely without pay, says President Phil Griffin.
Credit for the bust goes to the Politico.
MSNBC is known for criticizing the parent company of Fox networks for giving to the Republican governor’s association.
Some networks have a policy that employees must check in with the company to be sure political contributions don’t present a conflict of interest. Olbermann really presented no problem in that area, as it is obvious that MSNBC is interested in getting Democrats elected.
It’s a joke to dismiss Keith for putting his money where his mouth is.
