MSNBC Axes Ed Show, Alex Wagner; Lets Go Krystal Ball, Toure.
But Now They're Bringing In Their Big Guns -- Brian Williams

That'll fix things up just right.

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. Politico reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin is expected to make the formal announcement as soon as Thursday.

Not all of the hosts of the three canceled shows are leaving. 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."

Brian Williams will be hosting a new "News" show, with the actual quotes actually in the title.

Actually, the full title is

Breaking "News" & Storytime Adventure Hour with Your Host, Captain Brian Williams

Okay I made all that up, but seriously, they should put "News" in quotes. That would be funny.

No longer having steady employment on TV, Ed Schultz, Krystal Ball, and Toure announced their plans for a more "interactive" sort of programming, which they described as "annoying people on a one-on-one fashion in the streets or shopping malls."

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."

Brian Williams is hoped to bring that up to as high as 17% "factual reporting."

Meanwhile, there's just more Democrat/Media incest-- Alex Wagner's husband (whose wedding was attended by both the Obama's and the Ayers/Dohrn coupling), former White House chef Sam Kass, has been hired by NBC.

NBC is said to be "excited" (no really) to have yet another Obamoid on the payroll.

Co-host Savannah Guthrie gushed: "...we've got an exciting announcement. You guys remember Sam Kass, of course he’s the former assistant White House chef, executive director of the First Lady's Let's Move campaign, and nutrition advisor to the President....He is becoming an NBC News senior food analyst."
