Political speech is protected, broadly speaking, by the First Amendment. That any organization forbids its employees from contributing to political campaigns would seem to me to be an infringement of their rights. Military members can get in trouble for participating in political action while in uniform, but they're obviously able to make donations as they please in their private lives.
I could almost understand the claims of journalistic integrity...If Olbermann had any. Seriously, is there any question that MSNBC leans hard left? That Olbermann leads in that?
