Did MSNBC Do The Right Thing?

Howard Kurtz notes that lots of liberal bloggers are mad at MSNBC for yanking Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews from anchor duty during political events.

    Olbermann and Matthews will remain as analysts during such major political events as the presidential debates.

    “We came to the conclusion it was better not to restrain them” by making them wear “two hats,” Griffin said. “It’s not like we haven’t talked about this all along. What Keith can say on ‘Countdown’ and what Chris can say on ‘Hardball’ is a little different” than what they could tell viewers in the role of news anchors.

What do you think of the decision?
