Olberman and Matthews out at MSNBC. The leftward drift of the network is apparently delayed til Obama triumphs in November (probably November of 2016). From the NYT:

After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage.
It's an internal bitch fight typical of what happens to any losing enterprise when they face reality.
