Keith Olbermann Suspended

Given that I didn't even know that he was a news anchor until a few months ago (from a thread here), I think this is an interesting development.

My personal feeling is that anyone that is supposedly responsible for reporting the news, should not be involved in politics themselves.

MSNBC (click here)

Quote:
Keith Olbermann, the unabashedly liberal-leaning counterpart to cable television's conservative hosts, was suspended indefinitely without pay from MSNBC Friday afternoon for contributing a total of $7,200 to three Democratic candidates in late October, a violation of network ethics policies.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: Keith Olbermann Suspended

I'm curious to see if the Faux News stalwarts feel the same way.................... that news anchors should be apolitical.

Re: Keith Olbermann Suspended

He did work for ESPN and was pretty funny. Im surprised MSNBC suspended him, hell, they contribute way more than that to Dems from their left wing reporting.

You guys must have missed that dipsh!t Chris Matthews and his inappropriate conduct.

Yea, he did.

He has always been one for stirring the pot or being involved in controversy.

Letterman doesn't profess to being unbiased and just report the news.

Surely you know the difference?
