Update: Patterico beat me to the news below. But I will leave this up because I have a different angle on the story.
So this morning we find out that Keith Olbermann will be back from his suspension without pay tomorrow. It’s interesting that conservatives are probably responsible for him coming back, given how many of them rose to defend Olbermann. I mean, if it was just liberals rising to his defense, would he be coming back at all? Hard to say. But conservative defenders give the outcry a distinctive whiff of bipartisanship.
But that begs the question whether Olbermann will actually admit to having done anything wrong on his show, when he returns. After all, the Politico* reports that his refusal to apologize was one of the reasons for the suspension. And let’s remember that in the past Olbermann has been openly insubordinate of his boss, Phill Griffin saying once “Phil thinks he’s my boss.” So in part this might be a power struggle between the two, and Tuesday night, we might learn who won.
And of course Legal Insurrection offers Olbermann mischievous advice.
Update (II): According to this report from PopEater, Olbermann got NBC Execs. to apologize to him? And to change the rule that he broke? Well, if true, you gotta give the guy props for the sheer chutzpah of it. And as they say, there will be no living with him, now.
* Sorry Politico, but no linky for bullies.
