I have always liked Keith as a sports dude on NBC. He is great. I do not care about his political views.

He actually knows a lot @ baseball. Everyone I know, regardless of their political views, says that was where he was in his element (not playing, LOL, commentating).

Quote cats meow: i wonder why it was fine when hannity and buchanan, gave contributions to republician candidates ?)


Fox News programming head Bill Shine said there's no company policy against talk show personalities giving to candidates, but said Hannity would disclose the donation when Bachmann appears.

"It always good to remember that he's not a journalist, he's a conservative TV host," Shine said. "If he wants to donate to a candidate, he certainly can."


oh...... so for today, he is not a journalist, just a talk show host, i find that so funny


:~ I don't think Hannity has ever refered to himself as being a journalist. He is not. He has a tv show. Yes they talk about politics and the world etc, but doing so DOES NOT make 1 a journalist. Keith , on the other hand is(albiet in my opinion not a very good one , but any way)Had he of read his contract he might still have a job. Why be mad @ FOX? they didn't open mouth and insert foot.

i am in no way mad at fox, kudos for convincing so many that their opinons are facts, just keep saying the same thing over and over and over and over and people will eventually believe it, and when you start yelling is even more effective

I just read that MSNBC is allowing Olberman to return. It seems the punishment given was deemed over the top.

Keith will be back on tomorrow night. MSNBC was really catching a lot of flack from the viewers over this. There was a petition of over 300,000 names handed to them yesterday from viewers demanding his return and also viewer boycotts. Not bringing him back would have proven costly to the network. I feel sure this policy will we examined and possibly changed somewhat in the future. I find it ridiculous that a grown man has to get permission to exercise his rights. Shame on you MSNBC for making your employees play the "mother may I" game. Welcome back Keith.

? Unless you Actually watch FOX NEWS why bash it? I mean seriously, do they watch it?( and less than than 10 min doesn't count(jmo) and again just curious was it a show with a host? Because if so of course it's not all fact it's a talk show and much of the conversation is Questions asked and peoples opinions on the subject. Where as if you watch @ 7am for example(as I do) they just present the news that is happening around the world and here.
