Update: MSNBC Either Admitted Its Bias Or Isn't That Serious

Keith Olbermann’s suspension: two days.

Jack Shafer has already said everything I would’ve said:

If the network was hoping to telegraph that it doesn’t think Olbermann’s offense was much of an offense at all—the consensus view of his ideological soul-mates and even some of his ideological opponents—it succeeded hugely. […] The best way for the network to exit the morass it’s created is to stop pretending that Countdown and The Rachel Maddow Show are straight-news programs.

I don’t often just cede my opinion to someone else, but Shafer’s column literally says everything I could’ve thought to say and links to some really smart columns that echo some of what I already said.
