FINALLY: MSNBC Demotes Al Sharpton From Every Weekday to One Sunday Show Per Week

Why the cable “news” network didn’t just fire him altogether is still a mystery, but MSNBC finally woke up to reality and got rid of the daily Al Sharpton racebaiting extravaganza and demoted him from five days a week to one day a week. Sharpton’s show will be seen only on Sunday morning from now on.

In ay case, this racist hatemonger is now on the fast track to being shoved off the air entirely. But before they get rid of him, he’s now demoted to Sunday mornings.

Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.

“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”

Amusingly, Sharpton is pretending that this is exactly what he wanted. Today he said:

“I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker,” he told the News. “I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.”

Suuuuure ya did, pal. You just got totally dissed. Face it.
