Keith Olbermann being…. OLBERMANN…

You would have to be against the fundraising, and caring for kids with cancer to have a problem with ESPN’s one week suspension of Keith Olbermann.

Never one to let facts get in the way, the buffoon slammed Penn State students, when they were merely “tweeting” about their fundraising efforts to fight pediatric cancer.

Steven Smith of ESPN was subjected to a similar “time-out” for his comments on Ray Rice and domestic violence last summer, when he pretty much “blamed the victim”. Where does ESPN get these guys?

From The Washington Post: Olbermann offered his own statement before heading off to SuspensionLand. “I apologize for the PSU tweets,” he tweeted. “I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job.”

ESPN and Olbermann have, of course, clashed before, culminating in his departure in 1997. He was suspended briefly at MSNBC as well, then announced in the summer of 2013 that he would return to ESPN.
