I don’t get it. Suspending Olbermann because he made campaign donations to progressive politicians in Arizona and Kentucky makes no sense. The policy at MSNBC makes no sense. There is no pretense of objectivity in a show like Count Down. It is an explicitly partisan show. That Olbermann is allowed to push partisan, progressive politics on prime time, but not allowed to donate a paltry $7,200 dollars to some congressional races, strikes me as exorbitantly stupid. What the hell is NBC thinking here?
All that being said, if Olbermann knew the policy going in – what was he thinking? That seems about as dumb as the policy itself. And two dumbs do not make a smart. Or something.
