Bring Back Keith!

November 5th, 2010

As reported by Keith Olbermann Suspension Criticized By Reporters, Conservative Pundits (Huffington Post 11/05/10) and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann suspended for contributing to 3 Democratic candidates (WashingtonPost.com 11/05/10), Keith Olbermann has been suspended indefinitely without pay from Countdown for making three $2400 contributions to Democratic Party candidates without prior network approval.


Maybe it was an oversight,

Which I’m sure never happens on the right.


(Actually, it doesn’t, since Fox has no such requirement,

And has as its core mission, the GOP to represent.)


Did Keith know,

And if yes, should he lose his show?


In any case, it was a minor infraction,

In no way requiring such extreme reaction.


Why does MSNBC even have this rule?

Who is it they’re trying to fool?


Are they trying to prove they’re not the same as Fox News,

Though no reasonable person the two of them would confuse?


Everyone knows MSNBC isn’t a-political,

So isn’t this hypocritical?


But all reasonable people also understand

That there’s a difference between being a mouthpiece

And taking a stand.


If you agree that Keith should be immediately brought back,

Sign this petition and join the “Bring Back Keith” Facebook group for our counter-attack.


And to the rest of the MSNBC Musketeers, please heed this call,

And remember it’s all for one and one for all.

Here’s the (perfunctory) 11/05/10 announcement on Countdown and Rachel’s subsequent report.
