Olby’s Suspension

Is there anyone who hasn’t heard this news yet?

MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was put on indefinite suspension Friday after bosses at the cable news network learned that he had donated to three Democratic candidates, including one who had appeared on his show on the same day, in violation of the network’s rules.

Is there anyone, anyone at all, who could listen to Olbermann and believe he was non-partisan?

I would be ROFL if I found anyone who thought that.

The NBC policy on this looks like a “may” rule, not a “shall” rule.  In uses the term “should report”, instead of “must report”

I wonder, truly, what’s going on behind-the-scenes, what the real reason is for this suspension.  I’m not convinced (yet) that this is the real reason.


Media Distortions

Surfing the web today, I found this at a blog called Of Buckley and Beatles.

Yahoo’s The Upshot blog takes the cake for distortions today with this headline:  Republicans Take Aim at Obama’s Trip to India.

Reading the article reveals it is only two republicans, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee, citing these figures, yet the headline would have you think it’s the entire republican party. . . .

Here’s the Yahoo article referred to.
