Keith Olberman Suspended

How dumb is MSNBC for suspending Keith Olberman because he did not disclose he donated money to a Democrat (that lost I must add). I mean all they have to do is watch his show to know he is liberal and supports the left. Maybe they thought it was a secret that he leans to the left.

Well, he didn't follow company policy. But he's back tomorrow, so it was really just a slap on the wrist

Re: Keith Olberman Suspended

I don't look at him as a reporter to start with because he is bias like Hanity so who cares who he donates money too.

The past 20 years have been really bad for news. You almost can't pay attention to any of it anymore, everything is so goddamned partisan.

I don't mind partisan news as longs as like Olberman you know where they are coming from up front. Its the ones that hide behind the "Objective Reporter" when they are not that gets me.

i agree first. hes an opinionated tv personality, not a news anchor or reporter.

does fox news stations still have this talk of being fair and objective in their intro? i always thought that was funny.

Re: Keith Olberman Suspended

i think it is a reference to the fox news intro i was mentioning which says "fair and balanced". its funny that they trump that then 2 seconds into any show they rip into dems or dem news stations like msnbc as being biased.

That always cracks me up, along with the "no spin zone" crap from O'Reilly.

I actually like O'Reilly but I never really watch his show. Hannity I can't watch at all or listen to on the radio. He talks about the same old stuff over, and over again. I actually don't watch much news any more unless something is going on because we get news now days 24/7 and no need to sit down to just watch news.
