The Time columnist and MSNBC analyst called President Obama “kind of a dick”. He was right but they slapped him anyway.
Ed Shultz (this blow hard tried to get me one his show once and I declined) was suspended for a week without pay after he called conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut” on his syndicated radio program in May.
Keith Olbermann was put on “indefinite” suspension (it lasted two days) after it was discovered he donated $7,200 to three Democratic candidates. Olbermann and his ego left the network shortly after and no one really noticed.
David Shuster was suspended after he got caught filming a pilot for CNN while under contract with MSNBC. It wasn’t his first offense. He was earlier suspended for saying that Hillary Clinton was “pimping out” daughter Chelsea.
Joe Scarborough was suspended for two days last November for contributing a total of $4,000 to the state legislative campaigns of five different Florida politicians near his hometown of Pensacola.
And the Grand Daddy of suspensions..... Don Imus was first suspended, and then had his show dropped, from MSNBC in 2007 after he referred to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.”
I think Obama can blame the high unemployment numbers on MSNBC. Someone keep on eye on Rachael Maddow. She might be suspended for being a man........
