Here we go again!
Little more than a week after MSNBC star Keith Olbermann returned to his show, following a two-day suspension over political contributions made in violation of his employer's policy, MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough has suffered the same fate.
"This morning Joe Scarborough informed me that he made eight contributions of $500 each to local candidates in Florida between 2004-08," MSNBC president Phil Griffin said Friday in a statement sent out to the press.
"In my conversation with Joe two weeks ago, he did not recall these contributions. Since he did not seek or receive prior approval for these contributions, Joe understands that I will be suspending him for violating our policy. He will be immediately suspended for two days without pay and will return to the air on Wednesday, November 24th."
Wow, actual censure. Wouldn't happen on Fox
Where Murdoch has come out strongly in support of Beck's 'non-Fox' activities - even though his ratings are rapidly dropping.
