He's Back, Good Ole, Keith Olbermann is back on MSNBC!

HE'S BACK! Good ole, Keith Olbermann, is back on MSNBC!

An email from, Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC)

We did it! The president of MSNBC just announced that Keith Olbermann will be back on the air on Tuesday night!

This is a huge victory for the whopping 300,000 of us who signed the petition, which was delivered directly to MSNBC's president and reported on by many top news outlets.

Click here to sign the national congrats card to Keith -- and write him a note. We'll deliver it to him directly.

(Also, click to spread the good news on Facebook and Twitter. And pass this email to friends.)

It's clear MSNBC took notice of the public outrage. Progressives proved that when one of our own is targeted, we will fight back.


And Keith Olbermann knows what an important role his supporters played. He posted on Twitter: "Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug..."


Tell Keith what he means to you. Sign the national congrats card, which we'll deliver to him.


(Also, spread the good news on Facebook and Twitter -- and pass this email to friends.)


Thanks for being part of this successful campaign and for being a bold progressive.

My email to Keith Olbermann below:


Hi Keith, OMG, I am so happy to hear that you will be back up there on my TV screen come Tuesday night… When I had heard you were suspended I thought, HOW CRAZY IS MSNBC, TAKING DOWN THE BIGGEST VOICE OF REASON WE HAVE ON MAINSTREAM TV. Although, I do like Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow, the main reason I pay extra for the MSNBC package from my Satellite provider, is YOU. If the powers that be, on MSNBC intended to throw you off the air for good, I was going to throwMSNBC off my TV for good.

We, the (as BP's Swedish chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg calls us) ‘small people’, have so little voice on the side of reason, that is why we fiercely need your voice, Keith. You speak for so many of us whose thoughts and words of logic go silently into the night (drowned out by the likes of tea partiers and such).

I am one happy ‘small people’ that MSNBC and its president Phil Griffin have come to their senses.

PS: I just came across this little snippet, 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.”

“APPROPRIATE PUNISHMENT FOR HIS VIOLATION…” Good Grief, who is Phil trying to kid? Poor old guy, he’s so, too big for his britches, he doesn’t even know how to SAVE FACE properly!
