Keith Olbermann Suspended by MSNBC

Last week MSNBC suspended Keith Olbermann indefinitely and without pay for making campaign contributions to three Democratic candidates during the midterm elections.

Reportedly, Olbermann gave the maximum amount of $2,400 to Democratic House Representatives Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, and to Kentucky Senate contender Jack Conway. All three candidates had appeared on his show Countdown.

“I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a statement. MSNBC anchors are not barred from making contributions to political candidates, but the company’s policy states that donations must first be cleared by the network.

Some speculate this is a first step by the network toward firing Olbermann who has clashed with management throughout his time with the network.
