  • Melissa Harris-Perry Explains What Went Wrong With Her Beloved MSNBC Show

    Slate ^ | 3-15-2016 | Christina Cauterucci
    Just before the new year, her executive producer told her he’d gotten word that the show was going to run the full length of its contract, through October. Then, starting the second week of January, the show’s typical branding disappeared from the broadcasts, and no one at Melissa Harris-Perry knew why. There was no soundtrack, no Melissa Harris-Perry banners at the top or bottom of the screen, no color scheme on the graphics. At first, they thought it had something to do with the presidential primaries. Then, the show’s title went missing from the network’s internal database—there was just a...

    MSNBC's facelift over the past two years has cut the airtime of some of its most prominent minority personalities - and it is starting to be noticed. The National Association of Black Journalists expressed concerns about MSNBC's record in the wake of the noisy exit of weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry. The network said Thursday that it is proud of its diversity effort and noted that people of all ethnicities have seen their roles reduced or eliminated as part of a transition to more breaking news coverage. Harris-Perry, who is black, had been proud of bringing new voices to television on...

    Journalist Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC has made no fans in the pro-life movement, but her network has had enough of her, too. The Daily Caller reports that Harris-Perry grew very angry about her show being pre-empted by election coverage, resulting in her lashing out. She announced that her lack of airtime made her feel “worthless,” and led her to start boycotting her own show. This did not earn her much sympathy from the network. Reconciliation between Harris-Perry and the network is now impossible, and they are only discussing severance, according to the report. In regard to her treatment by MSNBC...

    Melissa Harris Perry will officially be out of a television job today. MSNBC — which signed the the 42-year-old four years ago to host her own weekend program — will officially make that announcement today, according to an unimpeachable source. The decision comes after Harris-Perry publicly accused NBC News Chariman Andy Lack and MSNBC President Phil Griffin of pre-empting her program due to racial reasons. Per an email she sent to staff that made its way quickly to the New York Times on Friday: “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes. I am not a token,...

    Melissa Harris-Perry may be too progressive for the new MSNBC. The anchor, who has hosted a weekend program on the NBCUniversal-owned cable-news outlet since 2012, said she will not host her show this weekend in what appears to be a significant difference of opinion regarding her role at the network, which has in recent months focused more intently on breaking-news coverage and politics in recent months. “Here is the reality: Our show was taken — without comment or discussion or notice — in the midst of an election season,” Harris-Perry wrote in a note that was reported previously by the New York Times, then...

Living off the royalties of his deceased father's one-hit-wonder, Will confronts the disappointment his many female conquests express when they learn he doesn't have to work for a living. While this may sound at first like the stuff of science fiction -- in what alternate universe would anyone bemoan a life of leisure? -- the reality is that we respect hard work and are suspicious of its absence.

    After tape rolled of Black Lives Matter demonstrators repeatedly chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," you might have thought a BLM leader would either apologize, or at least seek to miminize the incident as the excesses of an irresponsible and unrepresenative few. But no. On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, after just such video was played, BLM leader Monica Dennis issued not one word of apology. To the contrary, Dennis said "there is no need to apologize" for what the BLM movement is "putting forth," and touted the group's intention "to resist" the police. The segment began with...

    Of all the rotten reasons not to execute Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, we'll give the booby prize to the one offered by Paul Raushenbush, a HuffPo religion editor and ordained American Baptist minister. On Melissa Harris-Perry's show today, Raushenbush imagined that in twenty years, Tsarnaev might become "a spokesperson for reconciling Islam with America. We don't know what this life is going to lead to." Anything's possible, but surely Tsarnaev's sentence should not be based on this sort of idle speculation. What made Raushenbush's argument particularly galling was his statement that "the idea of ending any life for any reason is for...

    “Taxes for thee, but not for me” is the liberal mantra.  The celebrity-worshipping elite Left exalts the “middle-class” while not deigning to join it, and certainly doesn’t lower itself to such plebeian pursuits as paying taxes. While Melissa Harris-Perry laments the plight of inner-city black women (and beclowns herself by asking Eric Holder to “quack for us”), she also accumulates quite a lot of loot along the way.  In 2012, she tweeted pictures of her latest renovation project in New Orleans—not her first round of “This Old House”--she and hubby James Perry renovated another fixer-upper in 2009.

She and her husband paid $21,721 of her debt on Wednesday; the remaining debt of $43,581 covers a tax period that ended on December 31st, 2013.

    Call it Melissa Harris-Perry's "corpse-man" moment . . . In a segment on the role of the US military during her MSNBC show this morning, Harris-Perry, quoting the Marine Corps motto, pronounced it Semper "Fee." Marines of course pronounce it "fye." Perry surely meant no disrespect. But it is a mark of how detached she and so much of the liberal media is from military culture that she could make such a mistake. View the video here.

    Phil Griffin, head of the MSNBC cable television channel, told Marisa Guthrie of the Hollywood Reporter that he accepts responsibility for recent embarrassments that led Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir to leave the network and Melissa Harris-Perry to offer a tearful on-air apology. "These were judgment calls made by some of our people. We handled them. We were transparent. That is our philosophy: Be factual, and step up when you make a mistake,” Griffin asserted. “We took responsibility for them and took action. They were unfortunate,” but “I don't think it hurt us in any way.” While known as a...
  • Ohio Democrat Blames Republicans for ‘103 Million Americans’ Losing Their Unemployment Benefits

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 13, 2014
    State Sen. Nina Turner (D., Ohio) gave the impression Sunday on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry that “103 million Americans” had lost their unemployment benefits when they expired at the end of 2013, because of the Republican Party. If Turner was accurate, that would mean nearly one-third of the country is out of work. The correct figure was 1.3 million.

    [VIDEO GOES HERE] Not so reasonable sounding after all. Tittering like school children who just heard someone say “poop” isn’t exactly fairly meeting on common ground now is it? I have *chortle* no problem *snicker* with anyone’s *giggle* religion *nelsonmuntz*. This is the typical attitude of the enlightened ones when speaking down to the minions of mean spirited deities. They say we can all just get along, but in practice, what they mean is shut up and stand still, we’re trying to point at you and laugh
  • Glenn Beck Has Completely Lost It

    01/06/2014 3:54:09 PM PST · by Viennacon · 92 replies
    I am concluding that Glenn Beck has either lost his mind, or is slowly becoming a leftist. Today on his site are two rather disturbing videos. The first in which he continues his crusade to support GLAAD, comparing Russia's law protecting minors from homosexual propaganda to the Holocaust, and blowing up incendiary comments made by a Russian actor for no apparent reason other than to help push the narrative of permanent victimhood that the homosexual lobby thrives on. Here, we can be treated to Glenn engaging in left wing obfuscation more likely to be used by Al Sharpton than any...

    National Review ^ | 01/06/2014 | Eliana Johnson
    MSNBC, the left-leaning cable-news network, has settled on one solution to its recent problems. It now has an executive reviewing scripts before they go on the air. The role, which has fallen to Rich Stockwell, a former executive producer of The Ed Show and Countdown with Keith Olbermann who now oversees special projects at the network, was created as several of the network’s hosts have, to the embarrassment of network brass, conducted a master class in political incorrectness. In recent months, Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, and, most recently, Melissa Harris-Perry have awkwardly crashed into the trinity of sexual orientation, gender,...

    Two Sundays ago on her self-titled MSNBC show, Melissa Harris-Perry and a panel of guest contributors made derogatory comments about a photo of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, his wife and their grandchildren. Included in the photo was the Romney’s adopted grandson, Kieran Romney, who happens to be African-American. During that broadcast, Harris-Perry laughed and giggled at the derogatory comments of her guests which included one guest singing a Sesame Street song and another comparing the photo to the current demographics of the Republican Party. Following the episode, Harris-Perry sent out a series of tweets via Twitter expressing her sorrow...

    Once again we reach that time of the week where we single out an odious person for our Jerk of the Week honors. Some weeks are harder than others, but this week was surprisingly easy. With the holiday week between Christmas and New Years, you would have thought that most people would be on their best behavior or lay low. However, MSNBC is the gift that keeps on giving. This time, it's in the form of Melissa Harris-Perry. Earlier this week, Melissa Harris-Perry had a segment on her MSNBC show where a picture was shown of Mitt Romney and his...

    When MSNBC's Thomas Roberts announced the new line of Duck Commander guns on January 3rd, he was joined by Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Everett claimed Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, made his controversial comments to sell guns to conservative, middle-aged, white males and criticized the Robertson family for selling the kinds of guns used in mass shootings. Roberts used leading questions to guide Everett in making these points throughout the segment. For example, Roberts introduced Everett by pointing out that the new line of guns includes a "semi-automatic pistol" and "two semi-automatic rifles." Moreover,...

    Conservatives took the high road this weekend and boy don’t they feel good about themselves. When MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry gave an emotional preemptive on-air apology Saturday morning to Mitt Romney in advance of his appearance on Fox News Sunday for a segment last weekend using a Christmas family photo that included the Romney family’s recently adopted black infant, conservatives rushed to Twitter to congratulate themselves for quickly accepting an apology that wasn’t meant for them. Harris-Perry apologized, as she should have, for using a child for a political attack and for hurting the feelings of mixed-race adoptive families. What...
