Pat Buchanan Out at MSNBC?

Rumor has it that MSNBC has decided to end its connection with Pat Buchanan.

Buchanan, who serves as a conservative political analyst for the 24-hour news network, has been off the air since October. Over the weekend, Deadline Hollywood asked MSNBC president Phil Griffen [sic] to shed light on Buchanan’s employment status at the network. Griffen stopped short of making anything official but said that the ideas put forth in the book are not “appropriate for the national dialogue, much less MSNBC.” Griffin continued: “Pat’s a good guy. He didn’t like [being removed from the air], but he understood.”

Griffen made similar comments to other media outlets in recent days. “Pat and I are going to meet soon and a decision will be made,” he told the New York Times, adding that while Buchanan is a “good guy” some of his ideas “are alarming.”

Not to worry; he can always get his gig back at Der Völkischer Beobachter.
