Well, that didn't last long.
Just days after he was suspended by MSNBC for contributing to a trio of political campaigns without first seeking permission, Keith Olbermann has been re-instated by Phil Griffin, the network president who has feuded with the anchor for years.
"I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night's program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy," Griffin said. "We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night."Olbermann has received an outpouring of support from both sides of the political aisle, as ultra-conservative commentator William Kristol referred to the liberal host's punishment as "ludicrous" last week.
Tweeted the opinionated anchor last night: Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO"
