Ed Schultz OUT at MSNBC? [View all]

Caught this tweet Sunday night:

Will Bunch‏@Will_Bunch Why would Ed Schultz be replaced on MSNBC, even if just time slot? Thought he's been fairly popular. Personal reasons?

A reference to this article at NYT:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/12/business/media/msnbc-its-ratings-rising-gains-ground-on-fox-news.html?pagewanted=2&partner=rss&emc=rss

"Several MSNBC employees, who spoke about programming plans on the condition of anonymity, said the most likely candidate for a new show was the Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein, a frequent substitute for Ms. Maddow. Mr. Klein may start with a weekend time slot, but these people said the 8 p.m. weekday time slot held by Mr. Schultz was also a possibility.."

The twitter timeline I followed had some mis-steps, but according to the NYT, Ezra Klein is being considered
for Ed's prime time slot...

WHY would they ditch Ed after such a fiery lead up to the election?
Comcast now owns MSNBC... they are strongly anti-union.

I can't take this!! This makes no sense, now that MSNBC is eating into FOX's ratings...
