Keith was suspended for giving money, and yes he is back now, but wait what about Sean Hannity?

He gave $5,000 to Michelle Bachman, but on Fox, I guess you dont even have to hide your bias.

Here is a video for you Maddow haters, of her telling the truth, which R-Wingers seem to have a problem with.

link to Hannity giving money, but no suspension for him? All the goons on the Olbermann thread thought it was great he was suspended for being bias, why dont u apply that same logic to Hannity?

I think we all have come the conclusion this was a contrived ratings ploy knowing the fake out rage to the predictable backlash.

Oct 18 when Maddow gave the most insincere apology since the Fonz about right wing bloggers pointing out her mistake.

PT Barnum laughs again.

two different companies two different policies

This is like asking why can't the Panthers be like the Patriots?

Fake contrived outrage towards the right and Fox, I wouldn't be surprised if this came straight from Soros himself.

Yep. Two guys working for separate employers both do the same thing, but one company has a rule against it and the other doesn't. Guy one gets punished and guy two doesn't. You can't really turn around and say "unfair they didn't get the same treatment" when they had different rules.

I'm one that doesn't care that much if these guys contribute money to candidates (they have as much right as anyone else) but I could understand a news organization might have rules against it for image reasons.

This is obviously an employer policy issue because I don't think anyone would argue that Olbermann ever tried to hide his bias... :lol:

This is totally wrong. This is not just an issue of, "Oh, it's not company policy." This is Fox openly rejecting standard Journalism Ethics. It really amuses he hearing non-journalists opining on how Fox's massive breaches in journalism ethics are not a big deal (in your defense, you would have to be completely ignorant to those concepts to even tolerate watching Fox for a space of greater than 5 consecutive minutes without smashing your TV with a hammer).

A more apt comparison would be an accounting office that doesn't adhere to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Or a sherriff's office that when confronted with a police brutality claim, their official stance is "Who cares? What's the big deal anyway?"

God, I really hope news does die off in this country. It wouldn't be so much a tragedy as much as putting the once proud institution based on candor, ethics, morals, and accountability, out of its misery.
