And Now for Another MSNBC Suspension
Posted on Nov 19, 2010
Perhaps it was in the name of being fair and balanced, but whatever the reason, MSNBC brass decided to give “Morning Joe” anchor Joe Scarborough the Keith Olbermann treatment for making campaign contributions—but in this case to Republican candidates. —KA
Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough has been suspended by MSNBC without pay for making $4,000 worth of politcal donations without the company’s consent, a violation of NBC News policy.
The suspension—like the the one “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann got earlier this month for the same violation—will be for two days, MSNBC said.
And, just like Olbermann, it was Politico that uncovered the donations that sacked Scarborough. (Interestingly, Scarborough contributed an essay to Politico.com on Thursday—a “Survival Guide” for the Congressional Class of 2010.)
Yes, you, Joe: Scarborough appears on a recent episode of “Morning Joe” with co-host Mika Brzezinski.
