Race-baiter Al Sharpton is getting the boot from MSNBC’s weekday lineup to Sunday mornings. According to MSNBC president Phil Griffin, Sharpton’s show “PoliticsNation” will air for the last time weekdays on October 4th before moving to the graveyard of Sunday mornings.
MSNBC has seen the writing on the wall and it’s time to move the race hustlers out of there. My prediction is next year this time, Sharpton won’t be at the network.
In a memo sent to network employees, Griffin stated “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… I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”
The 6 pm hour will temporarily be filled by “MSNBC Live,” the channel’s weekday news program. A permanent replacement will be named “soon after” Sharpton moves, per Griffin.
Sharpton broke the news of his new timeslot to the Daily News.
“I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker,” he told the News. “I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.”
Well congrats Al, you have become neither of those men and hopefully soon you will become completely irrelevant altogether. Everyone make sure not to set you DVR’s so that you can miss every episode.
