    Joe Scarborough suspended over political donations

    Good for NBC...

    Joe Scarborough suspended over political donations - Politics - Decision 2010 - msnbc.com

    Msnbc TV host Joe Scarborough was suspended without pay for two days Friday for making eight campaign donations to Florida political candidates, apparently in violation of NBC News ethics policy.

    Scarborough, a former Republican member of Congress from Florida and host of the cable network's "Morning Joe" program, said he agreed with the decision by msnbc President Phil Griffin, which was similar to the sanction Griffin imposed two weeks ago on another host on the network, Keith Olbermann.
    "I gained nothing personally, politically, or professionally from these donations," he said. Nonetheless, he said he agreed with Griffin's decision and said, "I apologize to MSNBC and to anyone who has been negatively affected by my actions."

    Scarborough's reaction was in sharp contrast to that of Olbermann, whose suspension ignited a firestorm of protest from supporters who created an online petition that attracted more than 250,000 signatures. Olbermann apologized to his supporters but not to NBC News and broadcast a commentary objecting to having been punished "without a hearing."

    much different reaction from the conservative, than the liberal, huh.

    More proof Olbermann is a big freakin weenie.

    Good, bad, whatever. It's MSNBC's business.

    I think the rule is a stupid one, but it was only fair to also suspend Scarborough.

    Everyone but Maddow knows that. She said Keith outed himself as a liberal with those donations.

    The difference is that Scarborough was suspended for 2 days, essentially a slap on the wrist, while Olbermann was suspended indefinately. Very big difference.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Joe is the only semi-normal guy on MSNBC but like Olbermann only a couple of people at most will notice he's not there.

    I Googled immaterial and I was directed to MSNBC.

    That was only because liberal viewers put up such a fuss over the rank hypocracy of his suspension.
