Keith Olbermann Suspended

This was in the email today... I signed it and you should too.

BREAKING: MSNBC has suspended star anchor Keith Olbermann following the news that he donated to three Democratic candidates this election cycle.

Sign our emergency petition to MSNBC. Tell them to put Olbermann back on the air NOW!

Then, pass this to your progressive friends.

Media are writing about this breaking story right now, and our growing petition will display the public outrage.

NBC policy does not prohibit employees from donating to political candidates. But MSNBC president Phil Griffin is miffed that Keith didn't get "prior approval" first. Seriously. His feelings are hurt.

Meanwhile, Republicans Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan also gave political contributions -- but are not suspended. It must only be ok for MSNBC employees to give to Republicans, not Democrats.

Thanks for getting Keith's back. I've said it here once before... MSNBC SUCKS!

MSNBC was probably just looking for an excuse to get rid of Keith. They say he is obstinate and hard to work with.

It is not like he has not been fire before.

True enough Manapp and if they fired him for being obstinate and hard to work with I wouldn't have looked at the topic twice.

Rock on!

I signed the petition but I'm not sure why! LOL. I really don't have an opinion about what KO did, but if others did the same thing and didn't get punished then I'm crying foul!

This is further evidence of a corporate control of the media. When dissenting voices are stilled, then only one message can be heard.

He who controls the media controls the message.

Thanx for the posting Guy ... actually I thought it was a rotten shame the way they picked him apart, and only because he is one of my favourite commentator's actually ... so I wonder if I would be like Sue and whine if it was someone that I wasnt fond of. However I feel the amount's was petty, and no reason for suspension, but at least it wasnt termination ... termination is out of the question, he could get a contract in a New York second. Just my opinion.
