Shep Smith May Go To MSNBC
Water finds its own level. And whatever noxious fluids form the gelatinous substance of Shep Smith may have found their beaching ground.
MSNBC talent and staffers are bracing for a major 2020 shakeup amid discussion of moving ratings-challenged Chuck Todd to a morning slot and execs talking with Fox News escapee Shepard Smith.
Smith has had conversations with MSNBC President Phil Griffin about a potential gig when his non-compete clause expires, although his price tag is expected to be considerable for any interested network.
“It’s unclear what slot he would take, but we’d want him in primetime,” an MSNBC insider told The Daily Beast. “We are well aware [Jeff] Zucker [president of CNN] is also pursuing him, as are a number of the networks.”
MSNBC's base though are people who think CNN isn't anti-Trump enough. They tweet angrily to every Trump tweet, and then retweet themselves using accounts on all their 3 iPhones. They have pink knitted hats in their drawers. Even though some of them are men.
An ex-FOX News anchor, no matter how lefty or anti-Trump will be met with venom by Rachel Maddow's fanbase which is already drawing Venn diagrams connecting Smith to Putin by way of Phil Griffin and Comcast.
So what I'm saying is, let's make this happen.
