Sad, but not surprising UPDATED
*** begin quote ***
MSNBC has suspended host Keith Olbermann indefinitely because he apparently made political donations to three Democratic candidates.

And where do the traditional broadcast anchors contribute? You don’t think that ANY of them give money to conservatives or R’s, do you?
The “liberal” media bias is just dishonest. The slants are one thing; the out-and-out hostility to viewpoints not approved by the vast left-wing conspiracy are unacceptable. The folks are voting with their eyeballs.
At one time, “liberal” was a label one could be proud of. A champion of the people. “Classical liberals” opposed the King and force. Modern day little L libertarians trace their roots to these great thinkers.
Now, both “conservatives” and “liberal” joust to be the one in control of the “guns of Gooferment” to tell people how to run their lives. I, no more, want orders from conservatives than I do the liberals.
Let’s cut Gooferment spending 10% across the board. Let’s sell 50 or 100 year bonds to retire the Gooferment debt. Let’s demand that the crooks in DC only spend what is taken in in taxes.
Let’s end the Warfare / Welfare state. And, return to peace.
Isn’t that something that “liberals” and “conservative” can agree on?
