MSNBC Cancels Tucker, Brings in Gregory

In a re-shuffle of programming and personality placement at MSNBC, it looks like Tucker Carlson will no longer have his own show. Instead of replacing that block with another open minded conservative, they replaced it with one of my least-favorite journalists, David Gregory.

From MediaBistro.com:

NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory is being tapped to anchor a new MSNBC program called Race for the White House. Gregory will take over the 6pmET time slot from Tucker Carlson who remains with the network as MSNBC’s Senior Campaign Correspondent, reporting for all MSNBC shows.

I’m not sure why they decided to make this move, but

Sources say the network is going to beef up its schedule with more NBC News talent.

I really don’t consider David Gregory to be more talented than Tucker Carlson. Sure, David Gregory can rock the $4,000 Prada boots in 2 feet of snow in New Hampshire like the true player he thinks he is, but he doesn’t get street-cred from me until he rocks the bow-tie. Nothing can top the bow-tie.
