Olby’s Suspension, Part 3

As noted by reader Gripweed in a comment in the previous thread, it’s over.

From Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC:

After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night’s program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.

All 2 of Olby’s fans will be happy, I’m sure.

I still have a suspicion this was about something else entirely.   Political donations were made by other NBC and MSNBC employees, with no suspension   So . . . why the suspension of Olby?  For a few days, amounting to a financial effect he won’t even notice?   All this did was cause him some embarrassment (maybe!).   Something isn’t smelling exactly right to me.
