Mike Allen: Olbermann Refused On-Camera Mea Culpa

Mike Allen of POLITICO reports today that MSNBC sources said that Keith Olbermann was suspended because he refused to deliver an on-camera mea culpa, which would have allowed him to continue anchoring “Countdown.”

Olbermann told his bosses he didn't know he was barred from making campaign contributions, although he is resisting saying that publicly. Olbermann may not hold as many cards as he thinks. He makes $7 million a year and MSNBC's prime time is not as dependent on him as it was before the addition of Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell, who make considerably less.

Here look for yourself…Northern New Mexico, Eastern Utah, Southern Arizona, Imperial County in California, Los Angeles, Eastern Oaklahoma, parts of Georgia, Tacoma, Washington…are some of the worst areas of those states…with the highest drop out rates, crime and drug abuse.
Just because a state is blue doesn’t mean they are the smartest…It’s the blue spots that count. they are also the most broke, the most corrupt, the most crime ridden and the ones who are segregated with white Liberals and old hippies.
