MSNBC gives Steve Schmidt the boot
Unless you’ve been living full-time in a cave, a remote yurt, or a community without access to basic cable, you know that cable news outlet MSNBC has become the go-to news outlet outlet for not only realistic analysis (also known as “liberal media bias” that is in fact entirely absent from corporate broadcast media and major American print press outlets) but the conspicuous presence of current and former Republicans who are outspoken critics of celebrity real estate developer and serial monogamy cheater Donald J. Trump.
One of the cable outlet’s most eloquent and perspicacious analysts of Trump world is former Republican campaign manager Steve Schmidt. Make that “was”.
Schmidt is no longer a political contributor to MSNBC due to his political advising of former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s potential presidential run.
An MSNBC spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon that Schmidt is not a contributor while he advises Schultz on the bid, adding the timing was due to moves by Schultz this week that made his candidacy more real. An IQ Media search showed Schmidt hadn’t appeared on MSNBC since Jan. 8.
In case you missed it, there was a little bit of, well, tension between Schmidt and MSNBC host (and former Bush 43 press flack) Nicole Wallace on yesterday’s turgid episode of “Deadline White House”.
