NEW YORK (AP) – MSNBC says it’s suspending morning host Joe Scarborough for two days without pay for making political contributions to four Republican candidates.
MSNBC President Phil Griffin said Friday that Mr. Scarborough’s eight donations for $500 apiece violate NBC News policy. He said Mr. Scarborough will return to the “Morning Joe” anchor desk Wednesday.
In a statement, Mr. Scarborough apologized to the network. But he added that because the contributions were for local Florida races, he had not understood the NBC News policy applied.
Mr. Scarborough is a former Republican congressman from Florida.
His suspension comes on the heels of a two-day suspension of fellow MSNBC host Keith Olbermann last week, also for making political contributions.
