WTF? They just pulled Olbermann off the air for donating to Democrats, but their other on-air host, Joe Scarborough, donated to Republicans and that’s okay with MSNBC. (You’ll recall that MSNBC has banned Markos from the network as well.)
In the past, MSNBC has defended Scarborough’s donations to Republicans:
A spokesperson for NBC, Jeremy Gaines, replied to questions sent to Scarborough. “Yes, he did make a donation to Derrick Kitts. Kitts is an old friend of Joe’s. Joe hosts an opinion program and is not a news reporter.”
Well Olbermann isn’t a news reporter either. So other than Scarborough donating to a Republican, and Olbermann donating to Democrats, what’s the difference?
