MSNBC Anchor Keith Olbermann Suspended For Campaign Donations
Filings with the FEC revealed Olbermann donated the maximum $2,400 apiece to Kentucky Senate candidate Jack Conway, and Arizona Representatives Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords.
NBC News requires its employees to inform executives and get approval before they can donate to political campaigns.
In a statement released by MSNBC on Friday, Phil Griffin said: "“I became aware of Keith's political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay."
It's unclear how long Olbermann will be suspended, or what this means for his future at the cable news channel.
