Apparently MSNBC is just now becoming aware that their “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann is a liberal as it is being announced that he has been placed on indefinite suspension for donating to 3 Democrats during the just finished silly season.
Of course I am kidding and from what I am reading he should have known better as NBC has has a policy that forbids employees from being associated with political campaigns. But would knowing that Olbermann had donated to Democrats actually changed anyone’s mind about how they feel about him or for that matter, any talking head on the cable networks so-called news shows?
In South Dakota we went through a similar issue earlier this year when Rapid City ABC affiliate KOTA suspended one of their news anchors, Chad Olson, after he spoke at a Tea Party Rally. Of course the difference here will certainly be that while the Tea Partiers were outraged over Olson’s punishment, the same folks will likely be piling on the Olbermann suspension.
Now if Fox only had a similar company policy maybe they would put Glenn Beck out of our misery but then Rupert Murdoch would have some explaining to do as well so I won’t be holding my breath.
