Olby To Go Back On Air Tuesday

Phil Griffin apparently believes that Olbermann has been sufficiently punished for his defiance of MSNBC rules. MSNBC’s journalistic integrity has been suitably demonstrated for all to see. What a ridiculous farce:

MSNBC President Phil Griffin made the announcement late today that Olbermann would be allowed to return to “Countdown,” the cable channel’s most popular program.

“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,” Griffin said in a brief statement. “We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.”

Olbermann, who was suspended Friday after it was revealed that he contributed to the campaigns of three Democratic candidates, took to the web earlier today to update and thank supporters.

Cringe/nausea alert:

Olbermann posted the following message this afternoon:

“Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO.”

I imagine MSNBC is hoping for big ratings Tuesday night as the Edward R. Murrow of our time  returns to his post. Je refuse! to watch the revolting spectacle on MSNBC. I’ll catch the trainwreck on YouTube.

  1. >>>Olbermann has been sufficiently punished

    When will they think *we’ve* been punished enough and fire him for good?

    I don’t think he should have gotten in trouble for this, by the way… he’s not a journalist, he’s an opinion guy. And we all know what his opinions are.

    If they want to get rid of him, they should just have the guts to do it. He’s certainly given them plenty of cause to fire him in the past. Ridiculously low ratings are at the top of the list…
