Joy Reidís Hacking Story Filled With Holes
The Daily Caller ^ | 04/25/18 | Peter Hasson and Joe Simonson

Posted on 04/25/2018 3:03:35 PM PDT by Gennie

MSNBC host Joy Reid blamed hackers for placing homophobic remarks and jokes on her now-defunct blog between 2005 and 2007, but an analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation and a cyber security expert raises serious doubts on the veracity of her claims.

On April 19, left-wing Twitter user @Jamie_Maz resurfaced archived posts of Reid’s old blog, The Reid Report, showing her accusing prominent political figures of being gay, saying she was repulsed by the thought of sex between two gay men, and describing herself as “probably” homophobic.

The posts were similar in substance to homophobic posts that Reid admitted to writing about former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. Reid apologized to Crist on Dec. 3 for the “insensitive” posts that referred to Crist as “Miss Charlie” and accused him of being gay.

That awkward time when they didn’t understand they had to love gays to death, even gays in the GOP.

In the very beginning of the Anthony Weiner scandal, he also said his account had been hacked.

The truth will come out with Joy Reid too.

The internet Wayback Machine released a statement that their experts reviewed all the blog posts they’d archived and found no evidence of any kind of hacking. She is toast

You know... honestly... I wouldn’t mind if actually Trump had called Putin and said ... “Hey shorty... can you get your guys to hack Joy Reid’s social media accounts and take that b^*#$ down please?”

"...and describing herself as “probably” homophobic."

Well hell, I'm sure that we can get this reconciled with the old "taken out of context" ploy.

She is homophobic and a liar. She will be promoted to a Prime Time spot. MSNBC in all likelihood will never start an honest investigation. Had if been a Fox Personality they would have been at least already suspended and on the road to unemployment.

Sounds more like just a trace of normal, in viewing homo behavior as gross.

Sorry. They will reconcile. A spot on Ellen (tears and hugs about how Reid has seen the light) and with Oprah (she has learned from her experience and come through stronger—more tears and bigger hugs). Then a promotion as another poster said. Prime time. What did you expect, honesty from leftists? Keep dreaming. No offense intended.

We’ve seen from her previous blog posts that she doesn’t have much of a long-term memory. She must have forgotten how “I was hacked” worked out for Señor Carlos Danger.
