Lawrence O’Donnell is currently the host of his own show on MSNBC called Last Word. He has been working for the network for 7 years as a fill in for Keith Olberman on Countdown. He was also featured as an Analyst on Morning Joe. After Keith Olberman donated funds to a Democratic politician’s State Campaign he was ousted and fired by the network. It states in every journalist and News Anchor’s contract with MSNBC that they must not have any direct party affiliations. Although it is known that a majority of the journalist on the net work are Liberals, it is against policy to directly donate or campaign for a Politician. Lawrence had already been in the works developing a series with MSNBC but due to the sudden loss of Keith it was imminent that they speed up the process. After several weeks of hosting Countdown with great ratings the Network felt obligated to give O’Donnell that time slot.
