  • Huh...that's strange. When I read about his donations a while back, I just assumed that he may have made them before the policy was in place or that he had disclosed it prior and didn't violate policy. I wonder why they didn't suspend him at the time if the policy was in place then? Thanks for posting this. I'm curious too, so I might look up more information if I have time later.

  • If they knew they had to disclose, why didn't they?

  • To bad they won't suspend them for bad reporting. Most all of them would be suspended

  • Well, just like I said when they did this last time, I guess if he violated his contract then so be it. I'm sure he wouldn't have a problem finding another gig. (said the same about Olberman).

  • Because they don't want to seem biased for suspending Olbermann and not Scarborough for doing the exact same thing.

  • It just seems so weird that multiple employees would violate a policy like that.

    I can't decide who it reflects poorly on...MSNBC or it's former employees.

  • I guess I ran out of room, because it cut off my link to a site with his letter...
