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
8. UPDATE: Ezra Klein has tweeted a response to the Wikipedia-fueled speculation.
