MSNBC Brings Mark Halperin Back after Suspension
MSNBC chief Phil Griffin has reinstated political analyst Mark Halperin who was back on Morning Joe this morning after his "indefinite" suspension. I'm glad it only lasted a month. As I stated when Halperin was removed from the network after making an irreverent remark about President Obama, he didn't deserve to have his career ruined, though the suspension was completely justified. I'm sure he'll never say anything off-color anywhere near a microphone again. Good news for Halperin and good news for MSNBC. Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, an author ("Game Change) and commentator, is a solid, though formerly misguided, journalist.
