According to the New York Post, our occasional contributor and star of Weekly Standard cruises, Mike Murphy, was bumped from MSNBC Monday night, and a TV-watching friend didn't see him anywhere on air Tuesday night. This after MSNBC had touted the signing of its new contributor, who has starred in semi-regular appearances on Meet the Press with Tim Russert, and who would provide some welcome political diversity, and wit, to MSNBC's broadcasts.

Could it be that MSNBC is uninterested in diversity-or wit?
