(CNN) - Prime-time host Keith Olbermann, who was suspended for violating the ethics policy of his employer, will be back on air Tuesday night, the president of MSNBC said Sunday.
Olbermann was suspended Friday after a news report by Politico revealed he had donated to three Democrats seeking federal office.
Am surprise at the support Keith got, he is left leaning alright but he report facts and challenges the propaganda lies from the 24 / 7 fox news machine, remember one day the American people will wake up from the dumbness and see fox news for what it is
Now CNN should reinstate Rick Sanchez.
WOW!! Good for Olbermann!! Now his 10 total viewers can quit playing Chutes and Ladders and be told what to believe since they are not smart enough by themselves to know how to think on their own..........
He doesnt necessarily have to come back. He's huge, and he could always pull a Howard Stern by telling his managers what they can do with themselves. He is MSNBC's bread and butter in primetime, and knows it!
I can't believe that someone's individual political contributions cost someone a job. Since there was a clear policy in place already, it does make some level sense to me though.
Good for Keith! He is a brilliant man.
It won't matter nobody watches MSNBC anyway.
His suspension was just a show by "pms"msnbc to try to cover up their liberal slant to the news.
The man has lost all credibility as a journalist! Can't believe MSNBC is allowing this. From now on he is just another Democratic hack that should have to pay to be on.
He shouldn't have been suspended in the first place
I'm so very HAPPY 2 know that MSNBC has brought Keith back! wise decision.. love all commentors but Keith is my fav! love his show!.. regardless what the right wing, fox viewere wishe 4, Keith is back!! he's the show i turn 2 to listen 2 facts! no lie, no CRAP! lol...
My god I do not understand this. His employer ( invasion of privacy and basic freedoms) has no right to know his personal politics or how he may vote in an election. and as long as his contributions are within federal laws his employment contract cannot violate his individual constituional rights
You say CNN has a similar policy that potentially leads to discrimination ( illegal) as the Implication is Fox only recruits Republicans and MSNBC only Democrats.
I have two rules, I dont work for companies who ask either my religion or politics either in writing or verbally in Interviews, and if they do I terminate the interview and my application.
No wonder MSNBC backed off I would have taken them to court!! In a republican supreme court I win!!
Best news I've heard all day!!!
This CLOWN should have been fired. It wasn't just the money he donated which violated ethics rules but what about all the free air time this fool gave to people he supported? What was the value of THAT? MSNBC is a joke and nobody with half a brain watches it anyways. This fool has discredited it even further.
Well that's not very fair and balanced.
That was fast. Welcome back!
if OReily was working in MSNBC during his sex scandal he would have being stoned to death,myhousehold and i are not watching MSNBC until Keith come's back on the air.
im so happy keith have been reinstated and he did nothing wrong. you go keith and keep telling he truth to the american people.
See you Tuesday night Keith. I am glad that MSNBC came to their senses.
If only the FCC would do the same with faux news it would be a better world.
MSNBC is nothing without Olberman. He is the one voice of truth left in the media. CNN is going the way of fox news. I
can't stand to watch CNN anymore. They are in a competion with fox news to become fascist central.
This is wonderful news. MSNBC overreacted. It is an American right to donate to political campaigns. Just ask the extremely right wing faction of the Supreme Court. I agree that MSNBC should try to uphold a higher standard than Fox News, but it seems taking the high road never wins. Remember Dukakis?
