announced Friday that it has suspended prime-time host Keith Olbermann indefinitely and without pay for making political contributions to the campaigns of three Democratic candidates.
In a statement provided to FoxNews.com, Phil Griffin, president of the network, said he “became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay.”
Olbermann, who is the host of “Countdown,” is the network’s highest rated personality.
According to a report from Politico.com, the contributions were made this fall, including one that came just hours after he appeared on Olbermann’s program.
By "the highest rated personality", PMSNBC means those half dozen regular viewers who, like Keith himself, have been adjudged clinically insane and are in fact under house arrest.
Am EAGERLY awaiting Ann Coulter's response to this.
