Al Sharpton Cenk UygurFormer MSNBC host Cenk Uygur said he’s being replaced by Rev. Al Sharpton because Sharpton is friendlier to the White House.

Uygur left MSNBC last week after holding down the network’s 6PM slot since January.

“A friend of mine just suggested that I watch the ’60 Minutes’ piece from a couple of months ago on Al Sharpton,” he said. “And I found that to be very curious because Lesley Stahl said there, and here I have the quote for you: ‘Sharpton says he has decided not to criticize the president about anything.’ So the guy who was criticizing the president is out, even though he had really good ratings, and the guy who has decided not to criticize the president about anything is in. That’s interesting.”
