Keith Olbermann returning to MSNBC Tuesday

keith-olbermann-msnbc.jpgMSNBC is putting Keith Olbermann back on the airwaves Tuesday (Nov. 9), just five nights after suspending him for donating to three Democratic campaigns.

Olbermann donated $2400 (the maximum legal donation) to two members of Congress, Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords, and Kentuckyian Jack Conway, a failed senatorial candidate.

"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," MSNBC President Phil Griffin says in a statement.

NBC News policy allows employees to make political donations as long as they receive the proper approval from the network news president. Olbermann failed to get such approval before he made his donations.
