Scarborough suspended*

MSNBC proves to be fair and balanced when it comes to handing out suspensions for violating its campaign contribution policy. Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman and host of "Morning Joe," got suspended today for unreported donations to Florida GOP candidates. It's the same violation that turned Keith Olbermann redder than normal.

*Rick Newman at US News has a solution: "MSNBC could solve its donation problem by employing ordinary journalists. They can't afford donations."

Except ... MSNBC knew in 2007 that Scarborough was donating to Republican candidates. It appeared in a story they published on when journalists give to political candidates.
