MSNBC has pulled the plug on three shows. The Cycle, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show will no longer grace the TV screens of the struggling network’s viewers.
Dylan Byers of Politico broke the story this week:
MSNBC cancels three shows amid transition
Alex Wagner and Ari Melber, a “Cycle” co-host and MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will remain with the network. Ed Schultz, the host of “The Ed Show,” will leave the network, as will “Cycle” co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Krystal Ball and Toure. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced the news in a memo sent shortly after the initial version of this item was published.
The cancellations, which have been expected for some time, come as NBC News chief Andrew Lack moves to refashion the liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics offering, at least in daytime. In September, MSNBC will add a 5 p.m. program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor.
In honor of this occasion, NewsBusters has opened up their vault to look for some “worst of” moments from Alex Wagner and Ed Schultz. Here are a couple of examples:
Ed Schultz: Republicans Want You Dead!
Wagner: Nasty Conservatives Want to “Punish” Immigrants With “Alligator Moats”
There are so many more to see.
You’ll also be happy to know that Alex Wagner was a class act right up to the end.
David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon:
Alex Wagner’s Last Word On Her Canceled MSNBC Show Was ‘Shit’
MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, in closing the final edition of her canceled liberal commentary program Now With Alex Wagner, said “Woo! Shit,” as the camera faded to black one last time.
It is unknown at this time why she did this.
