THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!
The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview, “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.
MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.
Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.
Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.
“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”
This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.
JUST CURIOUS, IS IT POSSIBLE TO PULL THE PLUG ON AN ENTIRE NETWORK?
As reported at The Politico, LSNBC, BSNBC, MSNBC is pulling the plug on three shows, “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show.” But is anyone going to miss them, no one watched the garbage in the first place. MSNBC President Phil Griffin says the moves was made to change the uber-liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics channel, at least in daytime. Now that’s funny, reporting straight forward, no liberal spin news. Who are they going to replace these failed shows with Bill O’Reilly?
Coming in September 2015, MSNBC will add a 5 PM program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor. Oh yeah, that will change the liberal slanted, moonbat network programming, adding lying Brian Williams to the mix. PLEASE!!!
MSNBC has formally decided to cancel three programs — “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show” — as part of a larger effort to shift its daytime lineup away from opinion programming, network sources told the On Media blog on Thursday.
Alex Wagner and Ari Melber, a “Cycle” co-host and MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will remain with the network. Ed Schultz, the host of “The Ed Show,” will leave the network, as will “Cycle” co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Krystal Ball and Toure. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced the news in a memo sent shortly after the initial version of this item was published.
The cancellations, which have been expected for some time, come as NBC News chief Andrew Lack moves to refashion the liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics offering, at least in daytime. In September, MSNBC will add a 5 p.m. program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor.
This move by MSNBC asks the age old question, If three TV shows are canceled that now one watched, did they ever exist in the first place?
As the Politicus USA opines, Ed Schultz won’t be the last liberal to be let go, it has been reported for months that Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Chris Hayes are also on the way out. One can dare to dream. As stated earlier, they could all be shown the door and no one would notice. There are private website that get more traffic than MSNBC.
OUT AS NBC NEWS
ANCHOR FABRICATOR …
The following comes as a shock to no one, Brian Williams is out and will not return to his position as the anchor of its “Nightly News” show. We figured the end was near as even NBC could not put him back as their Nightly News anchor with zero credibility. Williams is expected to move to a new role at NBC News, primarily at the failed cable news network MSNBC, and his career will eventually crumble. MSNBC is the perfect location for Williams seeing that the cable network doesn’t care whether the truth is told there or not. My how the might have fallen, from NBC News anchor to a cable network where more people watch infomercials at 3 AM for Snuggies.
OUT … Off to the news anchor grave yard at MSNBC
NBC is planning to announce on Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his position as the anchor of its “Nightly News” show, four months after the network suspended him for exaggerating his experiences during a helicopter attack in Iraq, according to two people briefed on the decision.
Mr. Williams is expected to move to a new role at NBC News, primarily at the cable news network MSNBC, which would probably be in a breaking-news capacity at the beginning, according to one of the people.
Lester Holt, who has been filling in for Mr. Williams as anchor, will permanently assume the position as anchor of NBC’s evening newscast, one person said. Mr. Holt was previously the anchor of NBC’s weekend evening news broadcasts.
Mr. Williams, 56, was riding high as the No. 1 nightly news anchor, drawing close to 10 million viewers a night. His popularity extended beyond the anchor’s chair; his quick wit and engaging manner made him a coveted speaker at dinners and panels and a frequent celebrity guest on entertainment shows.
But on his newscast on Feb. 4, Mr. Williams admitted that he had embellished his account of being on a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire in 2003 and apologized to viewers. The response put him and NBC on the defensive; military veterans took him to task, and media commentators and viewers claimed he had lost the trust so critical to a network news anchor.
Some one has gone from a tingly feeling up his leg to very, very bitter …
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews loses it again as he went on a tirade for his pathetic network that no one watched, MSNBC, stop airing “Goddamn” right-wing ads. I guess Matthews only wants MSNBC to air only “Goddam” LEFT-wing ads. Matthews denouncing the troubled network for playing commercials paid for by “piggish” conservative groups. Hey Chris, you do realize how a network makes money, right … by commercial ad play? At this point MSNBC would take ad money from Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levine. MSNBC’s needs all the commercial dollars it can get to keep the lights on. But isn’r it great to see Chris Matthews lose it, makes my day.
MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts ended up under friendly fire on Tuesday when his colleague Chris Matthews launched into a tirade against his own network for airing “goddamn” ads by rightwing groups.
Matthews appeared irritable from the beginning of the segment on Robert’s afternoon show and brushed off small talk with his fellow host.
Matthews said that unlike the “piggish” elites of the Republican Party, average voters who send their children to war would not be interested in more hawkish foreign policy.
“Those people are not impressed by these goddamned ads,” Matthews said, scowling.
“I certainly wouldn’t put them on free, Tom. That’s what we should stop doing,” Matthews added in an apparent reference to the clip that had been played. “Stop running rightwing ads for free on our network.”
Hey Chris Matthews, how’s that far LEFT Obama foreign policy working with Russia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yeman and the list goes on and on and on.
- CNN saw a higher spike in ratings than any other cable news network at the end of the first quarter 2015. MSNBC sinks again!
