With Olbermann gone for a while...their ratings will probably rise.

I don't get why Olbermann was suspended.

Maybe NBC got tired of his poor ratings and constantly embarrassing the network. That Keith would support Democrats doesn't come as a surprise. Though if he had a stake in any race NBC covered election night it should have been disclosed.

With large corporations donating millions of undisclosed monies Olbermann's small amount is meaningless.

Slap his hand.

Even though he contributed a very small amount, if it's written in his contract, then that's it.

"But NBC News editorial staffers -- like journalists at most news organizations --

Hannity wasn't being portrayed as a "unbiased newscaster" on election night to cover the election results.

(Olbermann was? Do you have a link to that? I find it really hard to believe that anyone would think Olbermann is unbiased, let alone tout him as such.)

No I don't. Historically, networks put on "unbiased" news people to cover the election...with the exception of NBC, that is. It was in typical bad taste for that network.

His ridiculously rude and snide interview with Bachman was just par for the NBC/MSNBC course. America has had enough with the "liberal" civility on that network. They are a disgrace.

I realize that the uber liberal fringe will continue to find a way to pin this on Fox News or Bush....but America just isn't listening anymore.

Can you say.....SOUR GRAPES???
