I bring you some happy news tonight.
According to sources breaking out of Comcast, MSNBC's Joy-less Reid is going to get the ax. Her show is going to go bye-bye because they finally just had enough with her.
Now, obviously, I'll caveat it with this isn't an official word yet, but John Nicosia of News Cycle Media is the one reporting it and he generally has great sources when it comes to things like this.
“Joy Reid will lose her 7p show in the next round of reshuffling at MSNBC,” Nicosia tweeted quoting a source. “She does not have a show come mid Spring.” He said the “decision has been made, the only thing left is messaging on the move, which will be ratings. As was the case with Chris Cuomo at CNN, Reid has allies at Comcast, however, she is now viewed as “unmanageable” by many. Also, similar to Cuomo, it appears those allies have found out she has been “less than truthful about past incidents.”
Now that sounds quite intriguing. Have they finally found out that her blog with the homophobic and other objectionable posts wasn't hacked as she claimed? Is that the “less than truthful about past incidents” part?
Of course, there are many possibilities because she's been “less than truthful” about so many things, it might be hard to choose what they could whack her for, there are so many reasons for which they could if they were an honest and credible network.
Just in the past week, you had her show putting out the lie that Officer Brian Sicknick died as a result of injuries inflicted on him on Jan. 6 during the Capitol riot. Then Reid also promoted the ridiculous “Ron DeSantis is missing” conspiracy. Let's also not forget her crazed rant about Kyle Rittenhouse, Brett Kavanaugh, and “white male tears.”
MSNBC puts out a ton of bull, but even for them, Joy Reid's level of bull has to be embarrassing.
Nicosia said to expect — as happened with Chris Cuomo and CNN — that MSNBC/Comcast will defend her right up until they dump her.
I had to share a few of the better takes from the choir. But you can read the joy.
MSNBC is about to cancel one of its comedies. https://t.co/cF8aJ9bP6W
