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.
