Keith Olbermann Suspended from MSNBC for Political Contributions Face of Left-Leaning Network Suspended for Donating Money to Democrats MSNBC has suspended anchor Keith Olbermann, after it was revealed the "Countdown" host made political contributions to three Democratic candidates. Politico reported Friday that Olbermann contributed to the candidates in the run-up to Tuesday's midterm elections, making a donation to Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva on the same day he appeared on the cable news show. In a statement, MSNBC said its ethics policy bans journalists from making political contributions. Olbermann, perhaps the cable network's most famous face, is known as an outspoken liberal commenter. As one of the network's highest-paid personalities, he is central to the network's "Lean Forward" campaign, a rebranding effort promoting progressive points of view. Thomas Roberts anchored "Countdown" on Friday night. http://abcnews.go.com/WN/keith-olbermann-suspended-msnbc-political-contributions/story?id=12074305 Love the line in the video from the NY Times media analyst "he basically hosted the Democratic Nightly News...." Truer words were never spoken....good to see someone with sense acknowledge the leftist nature of the MiSiNformedBullCr@p propaganda machine.
