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.
