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.

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.

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."

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