After MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann was placed on leave recently, Sen. Bernie Sanders stood up to support him. Sunday, Olbermann ended his silence with a post on Twitter.com. Sanders tweeted him a note of support via his active twitter account. Later Sunday night, NBC announced that Olbermann would return to the air Tuesday night.
@KeithOlbermann Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO
@senatorsanders @KeithOlbermann Keep the faith. We'll do everything we can to get you back on the air ASAP. Your strong progressive voice is missed.
