MSNBC Brings Al Sharpton "In", The Young Turk's loose cannon Cenk Uygur "Out"


The New York Times is reporting that Al Sharpton will be hired by MSNBC, which was acknowledged by three people at the channel on condition of anonymity. In the meantime Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks webcast has left the 6:00 p.m. slot on the network even though he was offered a weekend show at the station. In the [VIDEO] below he accuses top brass at MSNBC of caving in to the pressure of “people in Washington” who wanted him to tone down his criticism.

- According to the website Richard Prince's Journal-isms,
not everyone would be happy with a Sharpton hire at MSNBC, One NABJ (National Association of Black Journalist) member told colleagues, "This would still be just another non-journalist media 'celebrity' receiving a TV show based upon their name recognition, not their years of experience, training, ability and talent."

But at the end of the day with corporate media, isn't it really all about who can deliver ratings and not
journalistic credibility?



Cenk turned down double the money he was making before...

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
