|Good evening folks. Greta Van Susteren heads to liberal MSNBC as their conservative voice.|
Official. The spot once held by liberal agitator and civil rights leader Al Sharpton will now belong to a conservative agitator who is notorious for covering missing white girl stories.
Greta Van Susteren's return to cable news is in mid January. Her show For the Record will premiere on MSNBC at 6pm. Van Susteren will maintain her residence in Washington, DC and come as a direct competitor to her former Fox News allies.
Bloomberg News and MSNBC's show With All Due Respect is canceled.
CNN's The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer is still a ratings draw but its not a big success as Special Report on Fox.
Bret Baier dominates with Special Report and it's been awful hard for MSNBC and CNN to come into that area. With Al Sharpton demoted to the Sunday morning spot, the replacement for the 6pm spot was pretty difficult.
I mean the talk was Chris Hayes, Lawrence O'Donnell and Joy Reid were heading to that spot.
Still who knows? The chairs are being moved around at the three cable news channels.
I hope MSNBC becomes the flagship of all things anti-Trump. I mean Fox News did a good job on President Barack Obama and perennial failure Hillary Clinton. Fox enjoyed great ratings during Obama's eight years as president.
Van Susteren is a controversial figure. She is the ambulance chaser and "where the White ladies at?" agitator.
Van Susteren gain notoriety for being the woman who obsessed with the Natalee Holloway disappearance. Also during the 2008, 2012 and 2016 elections, Van Susteren was notorious for doing lap dances for the fuhrer Donald Trump and washed up politicos Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin.
She was on Fox News for nearly 15 years. She was the first conservative agitator to bounce off Fox News when Roger Ailes was fired out the cannon. It left her show On The Record in limbo.
Brit Hume picked up the pieces and then let the show die on its own. Tucker Carlson, the CEO of The Daily Caller and former knucklehead on the couch of Fox & Friends was promoted to take over her spot.
Now Carlson is promoted again to take over Megyn Kelly's spot. At 9pm, Tucker Carlson will be at the helm of a spot that long belonged to the most annoying conservative agitator in the junk food media.
Sean "Softball" Hannity will continue to be on at 10pm. Martha MacCallum will take a promotion to host her own show at 7pm.
It will be sort of difficult for me to scope her out. She's not as pretty as Megyn but she will be a draw for the die hard Trump minions who love see MacCallum sport off legs and skirts.
CNN's Erin Burnett and MSNBC's Chris Matthews are on the 7pm spot. The Fox 7pm spot was originally Shepard Smith's until he was promoted to be a breaking news host. Smith still is retaining his 3pm spot.
