Ed Schultz is out as the 8 p.m. host on MSNBC, moving the the coveted Saturday and Sunday time-slot of 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Schultz says it was his choice to move, yet Politico reports Schultz was pushed out. Or, you could say, asked to lean way, way forward.
In is Chris Hayes, who although a liberal, isn’t an Ed-Schultz-type clown. I don’t know if Hayes will generate better ratings than Schultz, but he’s an upgrade. And, at the very least, Hayes will actually book conservatives on his show, so that’s a plus.
