I just about fell out of my chair when I read that the Worst Person in the World (his own label is perfect to stick on him) Keith Olbermann has been suspended for making political contributions to fellow collectivists Jack Conway, Raul Grijalva, and Gabrielle Giffords. The suspension is indefinite and without pay. Probably good for MSNBC as it may be a good excuse for them to get rid of his low-rated hatefest.
The parent company, NBC News, has tried to hide its own obvious bias towards collectivists by banning political contributions from its employees without prior approval of the network president. On the surface the rule seems laudable, but it actually saves NBC the embarrassment of having public records of political contributions proving that NBC journalists are overwhelmingly collectivist.
Olbermann, not content to embarrass only himself, has succeeded in embarrassing NBC News by confirming the bias that NBC had tried to dispel with its no-political-contribution rule.
And speaking of embarrassments, what kind of plastic is Olbermann's hair made of?
Hopefully Rachel Madcow is next.
MSNBC's own story on Olbermann is here.
