Cenk Uygur Out At MSNBC

A few days ago, Paddy posted a report that Al Sharpton might replace Cenk Uygur in the 3/6 pm slot on MSNBC. Rev. Al is still there. In fact, he's on air as I type this very post.

However, via Deadline, MSNBC is now saying Cenk is out, but nothing about whether or not Sharpton is his permanent replacement:

"It's unfortunate that Cenk has declined our offer to have him develop and host a program for another time slot."

Cenk is no shrinking violet. On Thursday, he's going to teleconference his response to the press, saying he'll "boldly discuss his departure from MSNBC." I have no doubt about that. None.

    Sharpton is horrible. Just plain horrible. I have a hard time watching a guy who calls people liars after his illustrious track record, i.e. Tawana Brawley.

    I see Current in Cenk's future, with no corporate overloads to muzzle him. I enjoyed Cenk and willmiss him. Al is also good and probably more feistier and combative maybe we need a flame thrower who can go after the right wing in this time slot. But I loved my Cenk in the afternoon.

    Nice to see him go. Ok, I never watch him.

    Cenk would have no purpose going to Current when his own radio show on YouTube  gets more viewers than Current would ever dream of getting. It would save him the trouble to not waste his time at a channel that nobody watches. That's just the facts.
