Rachel Maddow will be stepping down from her daily show as her new contract with MSNBC has her hosting a weekly program and participating in other projects within NBC Universal. 

As a result, MSNBC President Rashida Jones has to figure out what’s next for the network’s lineup once Maddow steps away. 

While speaking at The Information’s virtual WTF Summit, Jones touched on how they’re still in the process of figuring things out when it comes to the daily schedule without Maddow. 

“There are a lot of things we are figuring out and what Rachel’s portfolio looks like and where it shows up and all of those things,” Jones said. “I don’t really have a concrete answer.”

Furthermore, Jones stated they’re not in a rush to put together a lineup when Maddow steps away from her daily show. 

“It’s something we are working through. There’s no immediate rush here,” Jones said. 

”Someone said to me today, ‘those who know don’t talk, and those who talk don’t know.’ While we figure out internally and with Rachel and the team how this all works, I expect the speculation to continue; I expect the rumors to continue. This comes with the territory.”

A former CNN contributor who now works at Newsmax TV said the left-leaning network tried to sabotage his work by providing him fake notes during live coverage of the 2016 presidential election.

According to Breitbart, Steve Cortes, who now hosts Cortes & Pellegrino, charged CNN provided him with inaccurate show notes to undermine his political analysis.

“They are — believe it or not — CNN is even worse off-air than on-air in terms of their commitment to their narrative,” said Cortes. “They truly believe that they’re on a sort of holy war against what they deem as xenophobic nationalistic racism, and that’s really, truly what they believe we represent.”

Cortes, who joined Newsmax in March after serving as a campaign adviser for former President Trump’s failed 2020 reelection campaign.

“They’ve (CNN) convinced themselves that they’re on some noble quest, and because of that, they also think that the ends justify the means, that they can use any tactic — no matter how dishonest, no matter how deceptive — any tactic to try to defang, as they would probably view it, the America First movement,” Cortes added.
