America: Yawn.

Keith Olbermann suspended From MSNBC indefinitely Without Pay

On the AM radio I pick up here, New York market,  distant stations later in the evening, I would say that 95% & more of the political talk shows are conservative / Republican & viciously anti-Obama. In NYC on AM, I know of only one consistantly "liberal" station, & it's aimed at a Black audience. So it's o.k. to shill for favored politicians & political views, providing millions of dollars in free campaign advertising, but not o.k. to contribute a few grand in campaign donations?

Do we have any idea, or even care, who is buying our politicians with enormous amounts of money & interest group campaign ads not directly authorized by the candidates, but approved by their staffs nonetheless?

Fact is, Olbermann did break NBC rules. But apparently so have a few of MSNBC regular conservative talking head  guest commentators. They must be "subcontracted"  & exempt. What are the Fox News rules? How much does Rupert Murdoch himself contribute to right wing candidates.

America: Yawn.
