MSNBC #EdShow Ed Schultz tossed from PrimeTime

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz had a big scoop on Wednesday night: An interview with Scott Prouty, the previously anonymous Florida bartender who secretly recorded Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s disparaging comments about 47 percent of Americans. Then, at the end of the show, Schultz announced that, starting in April, his prime-time show would move to the weekends. (Watch below.)

Schultz said the time switch was his idea — “I raised my hand for this assignment for a number of personal and professional reasons,” he said. “I’m very proud of the work our team has done here at 8 p.m., but sitting behind this desk five nights a week doesn’t cut it for me.” Few people are convinced. “Sources at MSNBC told Politico that that was a very generous interpretation of events,” says Politico’s Dylan Byers. “Schultz was pushed out to make way for new talent, they said.”
