 As reported on Yahoo! News website:

The facts:

MSNBC has suspended prime-time host Keith Olbermann indefinitely without pay for contributing to the campaigns of three Democratic candidates this election season.  Olbermann acknowledged to NBC that he donated $2,400 apiece to the campaigns of Kentucky Senate candidate Jack Conway and Arizona Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords.  NBC News prohibits its employees from working on, or donating to, political campaigns unless a special exception is granted by the news division president — effectively a ban.  {However}  Sean Hannity, a conservative radio talk show host with a popular hour on Fox News Channel each weeknight, donated $2,400 to the congressional campaign of New York Republican John Gomez in May.  In August, he donated $5,000 to Michelepac, or Many Individual Conservatives Helping Elect Leaders Everywhere, according to the Federal Election Commission.  Fox's parent company, News Corp., gave $1 million this summer to the Republican Governor's Association, which helps elect GOP gubernatorial candidates nationally.  Fox host Neil Cavuto paid $1,000 in 2002 for a ticket to a dinner benefiting the Republican senatorial and congressional campaign committees.  MSNBC's own Joe Scarborough, who hosts the "Morning Joe" program, is listed in campaign records as donating $4,200 in 2006 to Derrick Kitts, a failed Republican congressional candidate.  Let’s NOT forget about Sarah Palin and her part-time employer, Fox News & she calls herself a politican that quits midterm! 


However, the only difference between Keith and other “Republican-ish journalists" listed above are “Keith supports President Obama, points out Bush's failures, supports reform healthcare, questions Wall Street's integrity for the non-investors & anyone earning less than a million dollars, allows anyone to voice their opinions, and supports anyone with a MIND & who can think for him/herself and who can chew gum at the same time. ”  If we do not stand up for something or someone other than ourselves then we are destine to "fall" for the banana in the tailpipe!
