Olbermann's suspension was inevitable with today's news, but I still like the guy, even though I felt it necessary to quit doing his show last spring to avoid association with his hyper-partisan ways. There is a place for hard-hitting, sincerely biased TV personalities. It just shouldn't be at legitimate news organizations. Giving money to political candidates, especially without disclosing it to the public or your bosses, is about as dumb as you can get and expect to keep your job as a journalist. Still, Keith has a heart, even if perhaps he wore it on his sleeve too often. And for that, I think of him fondly and hope to see him on air someday soon in a proper venue for his passionate points of view.
