Ya, like Olbermann / NBC / MSNBC are't already know for being liberal biased. Their impartiality went out the window with real journalism a long time ago.

Who is "the left"? MSNBC? I don't think you understand what happened. In their attempt to appear as though they care if their employees are "impartial journalists" they suspended Olbermann for violating some rule they must have about donating to political candidates. I don't totally get what you think is happening... Do you think that like all Liberals were calling for Keith Olbermann's head on a platter because he said something that "we" didn't agree with?

I'm pretty sure that Juan Williams' case doesn't really resemble this one at all.

Yes, this was pretty dumb because it's blatantly obvious that Olbermann is not an impartial journalist. I didn't need to find out who he was donating money to, to figure that one out.

MSNBC does have rules and Kieth did not follow the rules. So they gave him some time off. Some what harsh but he does not hide his love for the liberal left. He is suppose to be impartial in his telling of the news and not show a preference, left or right. He gave money to show his support. I don't really see a problem with that but the boss says he can't do that, so he gets some time off.

Keith Overbite was a jackass at ESPN, a jackass at MSNBC and will continue to be a jackass. His ratings were also sinking deeper into the toilet on a daily basis. I don't think the libs at MSNBC understand why his ratings were so bad yet, but after the election night coverage they should consider just packing it in all together.

So you'll agree that your initial comment made zero sense in relation to this thread.

Apparently you have no clue... Please help aber explain how his comment made any sense in this thread. It will entertain me.

I could post something like, " are intolerant" in every political thread, but then it would be stupid because it wouldn't relate to topics at hand. Sometimes I think aber isn't real, but is actually a bot who just randomly posts incoherent talking points in all the political threads.
