    I had to look him up.

    Cenk Uygur--the progressive online talk show host whose brief tenure as an MSNBC anchor ended on Wednesday--tore into the network in a lengthy monologue on Wednesday night, saying he had turned down a smaller role on MSNBC because he had been told he was too combative towards "those in power."

    Emm...

    Uygur had been the 6 PM host the network since January. But that role came to an end on Wednesday, as the network announced that he would not be continuing. Now, every indication is that Al Sharpton will become the new 6 PM host.
    You suck Bill...

    Uygur said that, in April, MSNBC president Phil Griffin called him in for a talk. Griffin allegedly told him that "people in Washington" were concerned with his tone on the show.
    He must have said some thing the DNC hadn't pre-approved.

    "'Outsiders are cool, but we're the establishment,'" Griffin said, according to Uygur, who said he was also told to book more Republicans on the show. He claimed to have been stunned by the conversation, and said he ignored Griffin's advice.
    Fight the establishment man!

    And allow the evil Repubs on his show? NEVER!

    Though his ratings increased, Uygur said that, a couple of weeks ago, he was informed that he would not be getting the permanent slot at 6 PM, but was instead offered a smaller contributor role for twice the salary. He said he turned it down because, in his words, he did not want to work at a place "that didn't want to challenge power."
    Fight the power!

    He has a son named Promethus Maximus. Talk about being fucked for life.
    I, for one, could never convict for patricide on that alone.

    I would have used... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKYxIaZtOVY ...rather than Maximus.
