Didn't olbermann get in trouble for something else, last year? He's just plain BAD NEWS. Thank God he's a democrat! Or, Thank God and Greyhound, he's gone.

But Fox News can give millions of dollars to Republicans without discosing it to it's views. That's right, NBC has standards...

Carry on!

Oh please. All MSNBC has done is complain and whine about Fox News and its bias. How do they combat that? By doing the EXACT...SAME...THING!

Olbermann whined earlier this week about Jon Stewart lumping him and Matthews in with Fox inferring that they were 'better' or somehow 'above' what Fox was doing. I guess Stewart was right after all.

Oh yeah, Chris Matthews should also be suspended after his ridiculously over the top, disrespectful attempt at interviewing Michelle Bachmann Tuesday night. Speaking of jumping the shark, that tingly feeling in his legs must be affecting his judgment.

Political Championship Wrestling- putting politics in proper perspective by presenting it as pro wrestling.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

All the libs out there will not know what to do with themselves at 8 p.m with their favorite loonie commentator Olbermann under suspension. When he ever returns, MSNBC should rename the show Meltdown with Keith Olbermann.

Overbite is the epitome of what is called a "live wire"

His "indefinite" suspension ends tomorrow. What a joke.

PMSNBC is a joke, too.

You didnt think this would last did you? and he'd be gone forever???

Hell, I saw that coming from day one

This doesn't surprise me. Olby comes from the sports side of journalism. Think journalism ethics are bad? They don't exist for the columnists on the sports page.

Sports writers are encouraged to hang out with, take/give perks from, the people they write on. So it doesn't surprise me that Olby was comfortable with him.

However I have no problem with him doing it. I have no problem with any other reporter or journalist doing it as long as they disclose it.

The problem isn't bias. Everyone, especially reporters, are biased. The problem is hidden bias.

So when Fox News donates $1,000,0000 to the Republican Governors association and repeatedly has Republican candidates for governor on its programs without ever disclosing the contribution is what you’re talking about correct?

Yes but don't be so naive to think that there aren't liberal news outlets doing the same thing.

All news media used to be owned by the political parties themselves. This really is the norm when you look at most other countries as well.

When you know the bias beforehand you can still make a well-informed judgement.
