BREAKING: MSNBC has suspended star anchor Keith Olbermann following the news that he donated to three Democratic candidates this election cycle.

Sign our emergency petition to MSNBC. Tell them to put Olbermann back on the air NOW!

Over 55,000 people have signed. Please sign and pass this to your progressive friends.

Media are writing about this breaking story right now. The Associated Press already wrote about our petition and we're keeping others informed of the growing public outrage. Sign the petition here.

NBC policy does not prohibit employees from donating to political candidates. But MSNBC president Phil Griffin is miffed that Keith didn't get "prior approval" first. Seriously. His feelings are hurt. 

Meanwhile, Republicans Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan also gave political contributions — but are not suspended. It must only be ok for MSNBC employees to give to Republicans, not Democrats.

The Democratic Party sadly saw this week what happens when you alienate your baseTell MSNBC that if they want to keep their viewers, they must put Keith back on the air NOW! 

Then tell your friends. Thanks for being a bold progressive.
