MSNBC Shakeup: The Cycle, Alex Wagner, Ed Show Canceled Brian Williams to the Rescue

Shows being canceled outright include The Cycle, a multiple-host show similar to Fox’s The Five, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show.

Alex Wagner is expected to remain with the network as is Ari Melber, one of the co-hosts of The Cycle. However, TV Newser reports that Ed Schultz, Abby Huntsman, Toure, and Krystal Ball are “out.”

The Ed Show, which aired at 5pm, will be replaced by a new hour-long program at 5pm hosted by Chuck Todd. Also coming to the network’s rescue is disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams, who was pushed out of his job at the Nightly News in February when it became clear he had repeatedly exaggerated some of his reporting from Iraq and New Orleans (after hurricane Katrina).

MSNBC‘s ratings hit an 8-year low in May.

The network’s decline is being blamed on the heavy focus on progressive commentary over straight news. A Pew Research report published in 2013 found that MSNBC was 85% commentary and 15% “factual reporting.”

Folks,

As long as you keep subscribing to cable and satellite, you are still funding MSNBC, and other left-wing channels.

It doesn't matter if just 1 person is watching MSNBC. They are still getting paid.

So dump your cable/satellite and join the streaming revolution. Buy a good antennae for local channels, and buy a Blu-Ray player, Roku, Chromecast, or Apple TV and get a-la carte channels.

MSNBC has not figured out that you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken s**t. No matter how they try to cut it, it is still the same old left wing bloviators.
