UPDATE: Goal reached!! 25k signatures now: Sign the petition to keep Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC!!

C'mon let's DU this petition!!!

23,781 Signatures Collected
Only 1,819 more until our goal of 25,600


https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/im-with-lawrence-odonnell?source=twitter&

Longtime MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell is in danger of losing his show when his contract ends in early June.

Show your public support for Lawrence and his show -- add your name to the right, and tell MSNBC that you're with Lawrence.

While contract negotiations have finally begun (very late, which is a bad sign), NBC employees have said the network wants Lawrence gone because he criticizes Donald Trump too much. Specifically, the network was concerned that Lawrence has called Donald Trump a liar.

More at link on this.

Donald Trump is a liar. And Lawrence O'Donnell has one of the top rated shows on cable television, only surpassed by Rachel Maddow herself. Lawrence speaks truth to power, and I'm sure Donald Trump isn't a fan. But that's not the point. Now more than ever, we need media who are willing to stand up to Trump and his growing kleptocracy.

I've been asked how you can send a personal message of support to Lawrence, but what he needs now is public support. MSNBC needs to see and hear that Lawrence O'Donnell and his top-rated show have our support.

Add your name to the petition, and show Lawrence and NBC execs that you're with Lawrence.

5. His show is the only one I watch on MSNBC. I know Maddow has been doing a

great job with her reporting on Trump and his administration, but there's something about her that annoys me. If they take Lawrence's show off I guess I will watch Don Lemon.

4. I know what you mean

but I'd get depressed if Lawrence gets the boot.

Can only imagine the replacements. Brian Williams name was floated.

If they boot Lawrence MSNBC has made a tragic mistake. That would leave only Rachel...and if she goes I will bloc MSNBC. I will NEVER watch that channel again.....it will be all CNN for me.

before then and it's going our way so far
