Sharpton daily show rumored to end

Dozens of viewers may be inconvenienced when MSNBC shuffles Al Sharpton's nightly show to the weekends. After a decade of trying to be the left-wing Fox News, MSNBC is changing its lineup. Rachel Maddow will go head-to-head against Bill O'Reilly. Apparently, Megyn Kelly was too tough a match for Rachel Maddow -- or maybe bosses at MSNBC want an excuse to dump Rachel Maddow's $7 million-a-year salary by switching her hours and costing her audience.

Rolling Out reported:
It is rumored that Sharpton’s show will move from its nightly 6 p.m. time slot to a weekend only show. Sharpton attracts a solid 35 percent Black audience and is considered a lightning rod of controversy because of his activism on behalf of the oppressed. The source at MSNBC stated it was also part of a change in the political mindset of the programming stating, “Going left was a brilliant strategy while it lasted, and made hundreds of millions of dollars for Comcast, but now it doesn’t work anymore…The goal is to move away from left-wing TV.”
There has been no word from the Sharpton camp on the rumored changes at MSNBC.
Going left was a brilliant move? So how come Fox News rolled right and is the No. 1 cable network overall?

GOOD.

    Knowing nothing about the site, I went to the home page, and found it apparently aimed at the African-American community.
