Jenny Slate Rumored to Exit SNL; Why is SNL Quiet on All This?

The cast change leaks at SNL keep gushing but there's still no official statement on any of them. Today, Deadline reports rumors that Abby Elliott was almost let go and Jenny Slate won't be returning:

I hear Abby Elliott, daughter of Chris Elliott and the first second-generation SNL cast member, was in serious jeopardy but now appears safe to come back, while rumor is that Jenny Slate might not be returning. Slate, who joined as a featured player along with Nasim Pedrag [sic] last fall made headlines with her SNL debut. On the show's season premiere last September, in her first appearance during a sketch titled Biker Chick Chat Slate uttered the word "fuckin'" on live television.

Here's something I don't get about all these rumors: Why isn't SNL owning the cast change story? Has anyone in their PR department heard about Twitter?  It's kind of ridiculous that any random blogger or outlet can break these leaks when SNL can easily do it themselves by calling the New York Times or tweet the official news as it happens. Either Lorne and company love and endorse the unchecked speculation or they have the worst publicists in the world working for them.

It's Lorne Michaels! He keeps the cast in the dark on purpose. 1) It seemingly gets the show even more press with anticipations. 2) He is Doctor Evil after all.

It takes a real asshole to keep his entire cast of talent in the dark over wether or not they'll be allowed to return to work.
