MSNBC gives the GOP a 3rd gift...

…by putting Olber­man back on the air.

In terms of keep­ing his niche mar­ket happy, it’s a good move, when your entire strat­a­gem is to keep the left happy you can’t bother to throw away one of their mes­siah and if some other net­work took Olber­man he might take a good chunk of the left with him, par­tic­u­larly since Mad­dow spent her show defend­ing him.

In terms of right and wrong, I think its fair. I think the pol­icy is fool­ish in this age, Olberman’s non-​disclosure earned the sus­pen­sion given the pol­icy but not a per­ma­nent one. I’d change the pol­icy myself.

In terms of the right it will be inter­est­ing to see how he reacts to the num­ber of peo­ple on the right who said it was unfair to boot him. I don’t expect him to have much to say on it.

Finally for the GOP it’s the third gift this week. As I said before there is absolutely no chance of Keith Olber­man con­vinc­ing any­one not already in the tank for the left of any­thing. Every there he is there is a lost chance for the left and another day that MSNBC fails to go beyond the lazy bounds they have chosen.

Update: Ed Driscoll

Lim­ou­sine Left­ist Keith needs MSNBC to pocket his $7 mil­lion a year. MSNBC needs Keith to keep them at the top of the bot­tom of the news rat­ing heap. Rather than risk fur­ther mutual assured self-​immolation, where else was either party going to go?

Oh I don’t know, try to grow beyond a niche market?

And the com­ments at Huffpo are inter­est­ing.

In terms of keeping his niche market happy, it’s a good move, when your entire stratagem is to keep the left happy you can’t bother to throw away one of their messiah and if some other network took Olberman he might take a good chunk of the left with him, particularly since Maddow spent her show defending him.

In terms of right and wrong, I think its fair. I think the policy is foolish in this age, Olberman’s non-disclosure earned the suspension given the policy but not a permanent one. I’d change the policy myself.

In terms of the right it will be interesting to see how he reacts to the number of people on the right who said it was unfair to boot him. I don’t expect him to have much to say on it.

Limousine Leftist Keith needs MSNBC to pocket his $7 million a year. MSNBC needs Keith to keep them at the top of the bottom of the news rating heap. Rather than risk further mutual assured self-immolation, where else was either party going to go?

And the comments at Huffpo are interesting.
