Keith Olbermann off air after tweets

http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/12375585/keith-olbermann-critical-penn-state-twitter-do-show-rest-week

Keith Olbermann will not host his show for the rest of the week, ESPN said Tuesday, because of tweets critical of Penn State and its annual THON fundraiser.

"We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State," ESPN said in a statement. "It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN.

"We have discussed it with Keith, who recognizes he was wrong. ESPN and Keith have agreed that he will not host his show for the remainder of this week and will return on Monday.

Olbermann apologized in a tweet Tuesday.

2. ESPN is very protective

Suspended Simmons for criticizing Goodell. Suspended LeBatard for putting up a billboard. Suspended Law for defending evolution.

Yet lets the likes of Skip Bayless stay on air after saying rape allegations were good for Kobe Bryant's image.
