Just when you thought the air waves would be less polluted, Keith Olbermann makes a return.
Mediate: You know all that talk about whether Keith Olbermannwould ever be back on MSNBC?
Well whoever speculated about that (me) was totally off – Olbermann will return to Countdown Tuesday night.
From Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC:
After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night’s program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.
I think the whole Olbermann suspension thing is just more proof of MSNBC being in desperate need of new management. Did anyone really believe that all of a sudden MSNBC would concern itself with “journalistic independence”? If that was remotely a real concern for MSNBC, we never would have been treated to Frat Night last Tuesday.
