That didn't take long.
Phil Griffin, who heads up MSNBC, has suspended Keith Olbermann indefinitely without pay for donating his own money to political candidates.
As Kos points out, Pat Buchanan donated money to Republicans between 2005 and 2008 (not to mention what a virulent hatemonger he is) and he's still on Morning Schmoe on a regular basis.
This morning Meredith Viera had a cuddle with Christine O'Donnell, who in case anyone forgot, LOST her election bid on Tuesday, but is somehow still a more valuable commodity on television than the guy who actually WON.
I can add 2 + 2, can you?
Meanwhile, Faux Noise doesn't seem to care about its on-air talent advocating for candidates on their own time with their own money. Here's a list of Sean Hannity's donations.
UPDATE: I'm shocked, I tell you...shocked...SHOCKED...and APPALLED...that Joey the Intern Killer Scarborough donates to Republicans -- but Phil Griffin has no problem with that.
UPDATE #2: Greg Sargent calls bullshit.
