*Olbermann* Was Suspended For Partisanship?

If I didn't see it...

Yes, despite the fact that Fox News is either a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican party or vice versa, it's Keith Olbermann of MSNBC that is taking a hit for supposed partisanship. Apparently he donated a few bucks to the Dems, and now he's taking heat for it.

Supposedly this is because NBC has standards about this sort of thing that Fox doesn't. Will this help those standards? Nope. Fox will just keep gaining ground. Will it be a blow for journalistic integrity? Nope, it'll just buttress Fox's position while harming MSNBC.

Oh, and NPR didn't let their people attend Jon Stewart's rally, either.

This is one of the reasons why the right inevitably wins. Because progressives can be such IDIOTS about this sort of thing. They handicap themselves, over and over, for reasons that mean NOTHING and accomplish even less.

(Not that NBC is that progressive, of course. But it's a damned sight better than Fox.)
