MSNBC has suspended prime-time host Keith Olbermann indefinitely without pay for making political contributions.
Politico reported Friday that Olbermann contributed to the campaigns of three Democratic candidates this fall, including one on the day he appeared on Olbermann’s “Countdown” program.

Olbermann is MSNBC’s highest-rated personality and the linchpin of its move to a prime time show of liberal viewpoints. He was one of the network’s anchors for election day coverage this week.

Olbermann was not immediately available for comment.
