And The MSNBC Purge Continues…
The latest victim? Alex Wagner. CNN’s Dylan Byers writes…
MSNBC had announced in October that Wagner would be given a new weekend show this year. However, network sources said that NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack decided earlier this year to cancel plans for Wagner’s show. An NBC News/MSNBC spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment regarding that decision.
Basically Wagner got Norah O’Donnell’d. I do not expect to see much of her at MSNBC going forward and there will some kind of separation between the two.
The revelation that Wagner’s show won’t be going forward was the latest in a string of controversial programming decisions at MSNBC that have come to light in recent days.
Jeeze Byers…Hype much? The only thing controversial that happened in recent days was the Napalm Bomb Melissa Harris-Perry tossed on her bridge with the network. Everything else that’s happened would fall into the realm of “run of the mill programming changes”.
Controversial my ass. The only thing controversial is your need to hype a story that doesn’t require it. It sells itself.
