I am struck by the reaction to MSNBC’s decision to indefinitely suspend Keith Olbermann for giving three Democratic Party candidates campaign contributions.
Conservatives are defending Olbermann while liberals are saying MSNBC made the right decision. Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard calls Olbermann’s suspension “ludicrous.” Yet TV critic David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun argues MSNBC had no other alternative but to take disciplinary action against Olbermann.
My take? I am sure MSNBC President Phil Griffin is shocked, shocked to find out that Keith Olbermann has made campaign contributions to Democratic Party candidates.
Yet in light of the impending merger between Comcast and NBC one must also wonder if Olbermann’s suspension is only the beginning of a big shake up to come at MSNBC.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
