|Three different political donations and a|
campaign appearance is OK for MSNBC's
"Morning Joe" program host Joe Scarborough;
but not for Keith Olbermann?
UPDATE @ 4:08 AM EST 11/7/2010- Oh, and by the way, Joe Scarborough likes to travel around the country, as an MSNBC host, stumping on behalf of Republican candidates or committees. Look at this little known January 2008 story via the Dallas Morning News; on Scarborough at yet ANOTHER fundraiser with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Chuck Norris.
"It's unlike anything I've ever seen – and from Republicans," the Des Moines resident said via the January 2, 2008, Dallas Morning News article.
Voters may or may not elect former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee president. But say this about the man: He throws one devil of a party – especially for an ordained Southern Baptist minister running for the presidential nomination of a party more closely associated with country clubs than dance halls.
Then Mr. Huckabee showed up with a bass guitar. And a band, with MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on rhythm guitar. And they started playing "Sweet Home Alabama ." Mr. Norris stood to the side, hands in bluejeans pockets, bopping to the beat. The scene would be like a bad acid trip for a diehard Democrat."ANOTHER UPDATE- Via You Tube @ 5:11AM EST 11/7/2010 - Things that make you go ummm.... From March 2, 2008 "Morning Joe" Program. Guess who was there and guess who interviewed him?
Wasn't Scarborough's "on-the-GOP-stump" rhythm guitar playing with former GOP Presidential candidate Huckabee occur, during the last election cycle? Now, all we did to find out this "non-impartial" information, was a simple Google Search. Wonder does MSNBC's President Phil Griffin, knows how to Google or You Tube?
Either way, unfair and unequal actions such as the Keith Olbermann suspension, while another MSNBC host can do the similar actions - at an additional level - and still be receiving a paycheck with no "workplace actions" being taken him, is questionable at best and discriminatory at worst.
