Lawrence O'Donnell confirms he may be leaving MSNBC

Yet despite MSNBC's success this year, reports continue to surface that Griffin, who reports to NBC chairman Andy Lack, may be victim of a forthcoming shakeup. "I'm sorry this situation has become public".

O'Donnell, who hails from Dorchester, is now the host of MSNBC's "The Last Word", but his future at the network - as of this writing - is unclear.

The show is very highly rated, especially in recent weeks as it has surpassed its rivals. But tensions have increased between MSNBC and NBC News and they bubbled to the surface with Maddow's anticlimactic scoop revealing President Donald Trump's tax returns from 2005.

O'Donnell did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday morning.

Maddow is not the only person that Griffin has helped get a solo show: he was responsible for putting "All In With Chris Hayes" on the air at 8 PM, and also scheduled "The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell" in 2010. Williams is now host of "The 11th Hour" at 11:00pm. But network executives appear to be standing behind Griffin now in a way rarely seen in the past when stories of his demise appeared, stating unequivocally that he will be at MSNBC for "years to come".

Pakistan's Foreign Office said it did not accept the ICJ's jurisdiction in matters related to national security. Rulings by the U.N.'s highest court are final and binding on the countries involved.

Lack reportedly wants former NBC News anchor Brian Williams, pictured with Maddow to take O'Donnell's spot at 10pm.

O'Donnell's representatives may be angling for a more lucrative deal or for a chance to jump to another network.

If other reporting is to be believed, MSNBC wants O'Donnell to stay. But that's to make better programming and more informed analysis. We hold them accountable'.

O'Donnell's high-powered agent, Ari Emanuel, the co-chief executive of William Morris Endeavor, had likewise been unable to obtain clarity about MSNBC management's intentions, according to the source.

Amid all of the rumors, Maddow publicly backed O'Donnell during her 9pm slot on Tuesday night, saying on air 'I consider us a team'.
