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 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.
