I know this isn't much of a diary, but I'm doing a happy dance over here, and just wanted to share!
Forgot to add this tweet from Keith earlier today:
Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO
STATEMENT REGARDING KEITH OLBERMANN - SUNDAY, NOV. 7
From Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC:
After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night's program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.
Thought I would update with a little more "content" :)
One of our best voices on the air... I'm so glad he'll be back to speak for us again! He is one of the few bright spots in the media lineup!
UPDATE - A mention in the New York Times! (Hat tip to @msnbcfans on Twitter for the heads-up!)
"MSNBC Folds!" read a headline on Daily Kos, one of the leading Web sites for progressives, on Sunday night after Mr. Griffin’s statement was released.
Wanted to add one more update: From valadon, in the comments, a chance to send Keith a message - a "Welcome Back", or "Thank you for all you do" or whatever:
you can sign a "card"

One more update:
There is also a diary up, from someone at the Progressive Change Committee, talking about this. You can find it here:
