The edit reads: "He is the future host of Up on MSNBC weekend morning's [sic] after Chris Hayes moves to weeknights."
The dubious source for this information is the website upwithezraklein.com.

BuzzFeed has reached out to MSNBC for comment.
UPDATE: Ezra Klein has tweeted a response to the Wikipedia-fueled speculation.
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."
