A mere four days after Keith Olbermann’s “indefinite” suspension from MSNBC for contributing to Democratic campaigns, the network has already announced his return, saying that keeping Olbermann off the air through and including tonight’s broadcast is “an appropriate punishment” for violating NBC News policy. Yeah, and it’s also kind of hypocritical, considering fellow MSNBC host Joe Scarborough did the same thing—and there’s some question of whether Olbermann, Scarborough, or any employee of MSNBC even answers to those NBC News policies in the first place. Plus the fact that no one out here cares whether these guys actively, financially support the political movements they spend their careers arguing for ideologically, which just seems natural. Anyway, whatever. Olbermann got a four-day weekend, which makes us sort of jealous. We're accused of liberal bias all the time, and yet every Monday morning, here we are.
