I find it interesting that the libs in the media are held to ethical standards.
I wasn't aware of that.
I didn't ever see that with Fox. He gives a bundle to the Republican Party and has nearly every GOP Pres hopeful signed on contract.

olbermann is a pretty nasty man(at least towards conservatives). I have always found it odd that they put him on the nfl shows on sunday. becaues he is so polarizing!! Rush tries to buy a team, and the libs go nuts.

It's a first. I agree with Matty--Olberman is a jerk. Sometimes he is right, but he's still a jerk.

I have to admit up front that I really don't watch any 24/7 cable news, so I have no experience watching Olberman doing his thing, but I have to wonder why he's being suspended for making political contributions. Is it something where he violated a condition of his contract? If that's the case, it sure wasn't highlighted in the BBC article.

Actually Rush tries to buy a team,makes racist remarks about the players and his deeply conservative partners throw him out because they have ethical standards.
He blamed it on the far left as he does all his failures,, but his partners and oldest friends blame it on him.
Yes chandler, it was violation of his contract. It seems that all the mainstream media except Fox have that standard.

The following article about the Olbermann suspension appeared in the LAT today.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/the_big_picture/2010/11/on-keith-olbermanns-suspension-you-shouldnt-cover-the-candidates-you-contributes-to.html


Knowing a bit more now, I have to agree with Olbermann's suspension. It always helps to have more facts.

Either that's a lie, or you have paid attention to neither the news, the sports news, nor to discussions here of that false accusation.

If you run off at the mouth in the way Limbaugh is so known to do, there's little wonder that he encounters some headway. I don't think isobars appreciates the fact that "running off at the mouth" in untoward ways will often get you in trouble, but I guess it's hugely why he gets so much grief here.
