Olbermann Apologizes to Fans for Donation 'Drama'

NEW YORK (AP) — Keith Olbermann is apologizing to his fans — but not NBC News — for the "unnecessary drama" surrounding his two-day suspension for making political donations.

Olbermann is due to return to work Tuesday night on MSNBC's "Countdown" show. In a statement issued Monday, he says he wanted to apologize to viewers "for having precipitated such anxiety and unnecessary drama."

He was suspended for donating money to three Democratic candidates in violation of NBC News rules. Olbermann says it was an inconsistently applied rule that he had known nothing about before making the donations. He says he was suspended without a hearing after being told that no suspension was contemplated.

An MSNBC spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
