I find it odd that in the last few weeks that so many conservatives have defended liberals who have been fired by liberal organizations, but I suspect that will happen with the recent events concerning Keith Olberman as well.
Personally I think it’s ridiculous that they would fire him over donating to Democrats as if this somehow tarnishes his journalistic integrity; obviously Olberman is extremely partisan. I think most would be surprised to find out he wasn’t actually in the pay of the DNC, much less that he had donated money to Democrats.
Unlike many on the Left, I believe in free speech – partisan, non-partisan, corporate, anonymous or otherwise and it is a travesty to silence this man for this reason however reprehensible his views. MSNBC is wrong to do this, and they should bring him back as soon as possible. I will never watch his show, but I would gladly defend his right to have one.
