keith olbermann msnbc Keith Olbermann returning to MSNBC TuesdayMSNBC is putting Keith Olbermann back on the airwaves Tuesday (Nov. 9), just five nights after suspending him for donating
to three Democratic campaigns.

Olbermann donated $2400 (the maximum legal
donation) to two members of Congress, Raul Grijalva and
Gabrielle Giffords, and Kentuckyian Jack Conway, a failed senatorial

“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,” MSNBC President Phil Griffin says in a statement.

NBC News policy allows employees to make political donations as long as
they receive the proper approval from the network news president.
Olbermann failed to get such approval before he made his donations.

Are you glad Olbermann is coming back?
