MSNBC's Ethics

(CNN) - Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's primetime firebrand host, has been suspended indefinitely for violating the ethics policies of his employer earlier this year when he donated to three Democrats seeking federal office, MSNBC announced Friday.

I'm sorry, but if MSNBC had ethics, they wouldn't have a show that was hosted by Keith Olbermann. Their election coverage would be hosted by news reporters... Not leftwing pundits.

I always figured that MSNBC's ethical restrictions only kicked-in at about the same level of nefariousness as armed robbery and murder.

It's been entertaining to read the Left's take on this story. They're incensed that the Right is able to make hay over this, so their response is usually, "Oh yeah? Well Fox News people donated to Republicans, and that's way worse than what Olbermann did!"

Well, the issue isn't whether or not you donate to political candidates, Keith. It's whether or not you violated the ethics policy that YOU SIGNED when you were hired. NBC's policy says, "No political contributions." Fox News doesn't have that as a policy, so any donations are not a violation.
