[pullquote quote=”As Vermont’s senator, I intend to do all that I can do to stop this merger. There already is far too much media concentration in this country.         We do not need another media giant run by a Republican supporter of George W. Bush. That is the lesson we should learn from the Keith Olbermann suspension. ” credit=”Bernie Sanders (I-VT)”]

After an unparalleled outpouring of support for Keith Olbermann was unleashed on MSNBC President Phil Griffin, it was announced Sunday night that the Countdown host will return to his regular duties beginning Tuesday.  Politico, who has been out in front of this story from the beginning, has the details.

Meanwhile, according the The Hill, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is calling for an effort to block the impending merger of NBC and Comcast.

More of Senator Sanders thoughts on the merger are at his website, sanders.senate.gov.

Many media reform groups, including freepress.net, have already been working to block the merger by encouraging people to join the fight by contacting their member of congress.

    The larger our new organizations become the less news and true reporting we get. Fox has show us this very clearly. Here is an idea….. lets just give all reporting over to “fixed” news and we can become like North Korea. With only one accepted view on all issues, we could all live in peace.
