Classic: MSNBC Names Olbermann’s Fill-In Host, Then Lets Him Go For Same Reason

Temp-host fail:

Chris Hayes, tapped Friday by MSNBC to fill in for the indefinitely suspended Keith Olbermann as host of the prime-time political show “Countdown,” gave money to two Democratic campaigns in recent years. Now, following that disclosure, MSNBC says Mr. Hayes won’t get the gig after all.

Mr. Hayes, editor of The Nation, a liberal magazine, made a series of donations to Josh Segall, an Alabama Democrat, who ran for Congress in 2008 and considered running in the Democratic primary for this election. Mr. Hayes donated $1,500 to Mr. Segall in 2008 and $250 in December 2009, according to Federal Election Commission records.
[…]
Several hours later, MSNBC said Mr. Hayes was no longer slated to take Mr. Olbermann’s place. The network said it would name a new replacement soon.

I’d suggest this to MSNBC: Don’t replace Olbermann. I for one would be far more inclined to watch an a hostless MSNBC show featuring an empty desk than any other option they’ll think of — unless of course it’s discovered that the desk is also a Dem donor.

Proof-positive that donating money to Democrats costs jobs.
