Will MSNBC Fire Olbermann for Contributing to Political Campaigns? Update: Olbermann Suspended

Keith Olbermann contributed to three Democrat candidates this year, and MSNBC’s policy forbids employees from donating to political causes or candidates because it “could create the appearance of a conflict of interest.” (pause for laughter)

So, do I think MSNBC will fire Olbermann for donating to three Democrats? Hell no.

However, if Keith would have donated to three Republicans, security would be escorting him from the building as we speak.

Update: Heh. Olbermann has been suspended without pay. Maybe there was a Republican on that list of politicians he gave money to after all.
