I won’t pounce on MSNBC’s ridiculous decision to suspend Keith Olbermann, others have articulated the general consensus rather colorfully. I’m just happy tohear that MSNBC’s Phil Griffin regained his common sense and reinstated Keith Olbermann!
That didn’t take long.
MSNBC just announced that Keith Olbermann will be back on Tuesday after one more day of suspension on Monday evening.
Olbermann was suspended indefinitely without pay on Friday after a report that he’d contributed to three Democratic House candidates in October, purportedly a violation of MSNBC policy.
Statement from Phil Griffin …
After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night’s program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.
