Matthews's contract expires next year, and NBC officials clearly would like to renew it for considerably less than the $5 million a year he is making now.

Cmon babay!  ditch the tweet!

A number of people I spoke with at NBC said that Russert can be disdainful of Matthews, whose act he often sees as clownish. They also told me that Russert believes Matthews is something of a loose cannon who brings him undue headaches in his capacity as NBC's Washing-ton bureau chief.

Matthews is a gorilla hopped up on meth throwing his feces on every wall of NBC.  And his ratings suck while doing it.

"I have a lot of options," Matthews told me. "I'm a free man starting next June." There has been long-running speculation that Matthews could be a candidate to replace Bob Schieffer, whenever he retires, as the host of CBS's Sunday morning show "Face the Nation."

He seems resigned to his fate, Gregory is going into his slot and he knows it.

Face the nation.  LOL

This leaves an empty time slot, a time slot that I think Msnbc is already looking into.

These cable programmers need a push. They need to know that there would be support for Maddow should she get the nod.  It makes their decision easier when they know someone has a built in fan base -- making the jump for her less of a risk.

When the opportunity presents itself, always support your local Maddow.  More progressives on teh tubez!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
