After it was revealed that MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt had gotten Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to do him favors even as Hewitt was praising Pruitt on his show, many viewers demanded that the network fire the conservative talk show host.


However, MSNBC on Wednesday said that it had issued a "verbal warning" to Hewitt about not disclosing his lobbying of Trump administration officials for favors even as he gushed about their performances on air.

This did not sit well with many MSNBC viewers, who took to Twitter to bash the network for its decision to give Hewitt a slap on the wrist.
