MSNBC says it has decided not to renew a contract with paid contributor Joan Walsh, and the news caused an uproar on social media by some of the network's top talent.
Walsh says on her Twitter account she learned of the New York-based network's decision Friday while baking pies with her daughter. MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Joy Reid have tweeted in support of Walsh.
Reid called the network's decision 'short sighted' and added 'Given the momentousness of next year's anniversaries: the women's march, the King and RFK assassinations ... we need to be at full strength as media entities, and Joan belongs in the mix.' While Hayes tweeted Walsh is 'indispensable.'
Within 24 hours, however, the contributor shared she was picked up by CNN. 'I'm thrilled to tell you I'll be heading to @CNN in the new year. Thanks to everyone who made this happen. A Christmas miracle,' she tweeted.

I never paid attention to her on MSNBC. Now I guess I can never pay attention to her on CNN instead. At least she didn't end up on Fox.
Who cares? FU!
Who? Never seen or heard of her before. Perhaps never watching MSNBC has something to do with it.
“Walsh says on her Twitter account she learned of the New York-based network’s decision Friday while baking pies with her daughter”
Just tears at my heart to hear this. I’m sure she’ll be scarred for life.
Yea right. Like she was really baking pies. Sarah Huckabee will debunk this lie at the next press briefing.
You can’t be much good if even leftards at MSNBC won’t keep you on.... but CNN snapped her up so there’s always another way to hit bottom!
[Reid called the network’s decision ‘short sighted’ and added ‘Given the momentousness of next year’s anniversaries: the women’s march, the King and RFK assassinations ... we need to be at full strength as media entities, and Joan belongs in the mix.’]
I give you the left’s strategy for 2018. Make it 1968 again.
They’re constantly in an uproar.
They live for uproar.
They don’t feel like they have any purpose if they’re not in a state of uproar.
They think that people who are not in a state of uproar are the cause of all the problems of the world.
Never heard or saw any of these dimwits...Anyone who has doesn’t have either or both brains or a real life...
So she ended up being brought to the major leagues of the Liberal Media. A win for her. On the bright side, there’s now infighting at MSLSD.
Simmer down, you pack of bitches. Nobody cares about your temper tantrums or your hurt feelers.
Rub some dirt on it, babies.
“the King and RFK assassinations .”
I knew Elvis was assassinated.
“Media entities”. Good God, they don’t even think of themselves as mere human beings.
Joan Walsh is the author of Whats the Matter With White People? Finding Our Way in the Next America, which the Philadelphia Daily News called one of the best books of 2012 and even more relevant now.
Hardball host Chris Matthews called it Engaging, thoughtful, provocative, utterly persuasive.
The think of talking heads as heros and imagined that we do too. They get confused and act like they are still “in office” (Obama era) presiding over the unwashed, claiming to slay dragons for us. Indispensable - they think they are all indispensable.
Tough times have fallen on the fake news industry.
Since when is being clueless considered a talent?
If these networks had a real interest in who killed RFK and MLK and why they would have to look very hard into the mirror—because it was the (predecessors of the) same deep state folks who control every word they say!
Their virtue signaling is pure decoy.
Joan Walsh is a MENA girl....Hateful as HELL! And I don’t believe the PIE MAKING story, Joannie!
uh...MEAN girl, Not MENA girl....yikes.
