According To Wikipedia, Ezra Klein Is MSNBC’s New Weekend Host

UPDATE: Wikipedia was, in fact, wrong - Steve Kornacki will be replacing Chris Hayes. Ezra Klein’s Wikipedia page has been updated to indicate that he is the “future host of Up on MSNBC weekend morning’s [sic] after Chris Hayes moves to weeknights.” Seems legit.

1. Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein’s Wikipedia page was updated on Sunday to indicate that he will replace Chris Hayes as a MSNBC weekend anchor.

2. The edit reads: “He is the future host of Up on MSNBC weekend morning’s [sic] after Chris Hayes moves to weeknights.”

3. The dubious source for this information is the website upwithezraklein.com.

4. The site consists of a photoshopped image of Ezra Klein and the caption: “This image is fake. It’s a photoshop rendering of how awesome UP would look on weekend mornings if Ezra Klein becomes the next host.”

5. The changes were made by a user with a Pinellas Park, Fla. IP addres

7. BuzzFeed has reached out to MSNBC for comment.

9. UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: MSNBC announced today that Steve Kornacki will be replacing Chris Hayes as a weekend anchor. Kornacki previously co-hosted MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”
