Another flap about which I don’t care

These three tweets from Jay Rosen sum up the whole Keith Olbermann thing and why I don’t really care about it.


MSNBC suspends Olbermann indefinitely for donating $ to Democratic candidates http://jr.ly/5qn7 NBC rules clearly say you cannot do that.

As many have told me, NBC rules say don’t donate to candidates without getting approval from your boss. Olbermann did not do that. Ergo…

Whether NBC should have these rules, whether Keith’s suspension makes sense, whether they know what they are doing: all are open to doubt.
