MSNBC to Cancel Tucker Carlson

That's what TVNewser is reporting.
The official announcement, expected tomorrow, will include details about who will replace Tucker at 6pmET as well as other political programming additions. Sources say the network is going to beef up its schedule with more NBC News talent.
In recent days, Jossip, as well as other blogs, ratcheted up the talk that Tucker would be replaced "for a new project." In its 33-month run, Carlson's show has had two names, four time slots and multiple formats.
Alex Blaze of The Bilerico Project is spot-on:
Maybe MSNBC has realized that swinging to the Right to try and shake out Fox News for viewers isn't a winning strategy. Or maybe they realized that at least half their commentators should accept the reality that white men aren't oppressed. Or maybe they think that people don't want to watch a bully wannabe talk about his fun days of beating up fags. Or maybe they got tired of his history of abusing the rules of logic, evidence, and reality.
Or how about this gem, questioning Barack Obama's masculinity for having a book club:
...Carlson recently referred to Obama's "rhetoric" as "kind of wimpy" and said that Obama "seems like kind of a wuss." Carlson also said that Obama "sounds like a pothead."
