‘After Months of Dismal Ratings…’: Twitter Reacts To Greta Van Susteren’s Ouster From MSNBC

After just six months, Greta Van Susteren is out at MSNBC. The former Fox News host will be replaced by MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, Ari Melber.

Van Susteren, who moved from Fox News to MSNBC in January, tweeted on Thursday afternoon, “I am out at MSNBC.”

According to the NY Post, MSNBC president Phil Griffin told staff, “As we continue to grow and evolve as a network during one of the most newsworthy periods in recent history I have important news about our 6pm hour. MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have decided to part ways.”

Greta was not a particularly polarizing character but, having worked for Fox News and MSNBC, the reaction on Twitter was divided.
