Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's primetime firebrand host, has been suspended indefinitely for violating the ethics policies of his employer earlier this year when he donated to three Democrats seeking federal office, MSNBC announced Friday.
I may not agree with Olberman all the time, but MSNBC is way out of line here. Keith made those donations as a private citizen and if corporations have a first amendment right to spend money on politics, so do ordinary citizens. Had Olberman subverted his show's objectivity as a result of money given TO him, MSNBC would have a legitimate case here. But as things stand now, MSNBC is off my channel line-up.
