Love him or hate him it looks like you won’t have Keith Olbermann to kick around anymore.
He has been ‘suspended indefinitely without pay’ for violating network ethics rules about making campaign donations to candidates. Keith made donations to Arizona Congresscritters Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway (who sadly lost to Rand Paul).
Network policy at NBC prohibits any donations without prior approval.
Although he has not officially been fired, the words ‘suspended indefinitely’ sure sound like code for fired.
I would assume that they have not formally fired him until the attorneys go over his contract to figure out what the network can and cannot do in terms of termination.
