Anchor's suspension over Conway campaign contribution ends Tuesday

NEW YORK (AP) - MSNBC says Keith Olbermann will be back on the
air Tuesday, ending his suspension for violating NBC's rules
against making political donations.
MSNBC's chief executive Phil Griffin said late Sunday that after
several days of deliberation, he had determined that two days off
the air was "an appropriate punishment for his violation of our
policy."
The left-leaning cable network's most popular personality
acknowledged donating $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 making
political donations unless an exception is granted in advance by
the network news president. In this case, Olbermann's bosses didn't
know about them until being informed by a reporter.
