Joy Reid Apologizes for Blog Posts She Previously Claimed Were Hacked

Joy Reid Apologizes for Blog Posts She Previously Claimed Were Hacked

Fails to address supposed FBI investigation.

On Thursday, we covered the newest crazy findings on Joy Reid’s old blog and noted that she was running out of excuses. Friday, Reid apologized (again) for things she doesn’t remember writing.

David Rutz reported at the Washington Free Beacon:

Joy Reid Apologizes for Blog Posts, Appears to Drop Hacking Claim: ‘There Are Things I Deeply Regret’

MSNBC host Joy Reid issued an apology on Friday as pressure mounted on her and the network to address inflammatory blog posts she made beginning in 2005.

Reid appeared to drop her previous claims of being hacked, saying she was “sincerely apologizing again” for her posts and that she was “embarrassed” by some of the things she wrote…

“While I published my blog, starting in 2005, I wrote thousands of posts in real time on the issues of the day,” Reid said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. “There are things I deeply regret and am embarrassed by, things I would have said differently and issues where my position has changed. Today I’m sincerely apologizing again. I’m sorry for the collateral damage and pain this is causing individuals and communities caught in the crossfire.”

Reid’s latest statement does not address the supposed FBI investigation of the hacking of her blog.

Charlie Warzel and Joseph Bernstein report at BuzzFeed:

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Is Sorry (Again) For Old Blog Posts, But Still Won’t Address Hacking Claims

Representatives for Reid and MSNBC have both pointed to an ongoing federal investigation into the alleged hacking. But media reports disputed evidence presented by Reid’s team. BuzzFeed News reported in May that Reid’s cybersecurity expert has previously given information to the FBI that led to an investigation that a source with close knowledge of FBI investigations called a waste of time.

In December, Reid admitted having written other anti-gay posts from the same time period and apologized. She apologized again on her show in April when more were uncovered.

After Reid’s latest apology Friday, MSNBC followed shortly after, suggesting the company has accepted she was contrite.

“Some of the things written by Joy on her old blog are obviously hateful and hurtful,” the company said. “Joy has apologized publicly and privately and said she has grown and evolved in the many years since, and we know this to be true.”

An MSNBC spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment as to whether Reid or the company would address the hacking claims or FBI investigation, or whether she would face disciplinary action.

Well she is a member in good standing of The Family, the Politburo or whatever. Red liberal hypocrites. The corporate backers of these people are no better.

and issues where my position has changed.

Since Progressives never change—their intellects and imaginations ossify at an early age—this is obviously a lie.

and we know this to be true.

Since they were ignorant of these posts before they were discovered and publicized, the best they can say is that they hope something is true … until more energetic investigators find additional material. So, another lie.

    Please – seriously. Trump just pardoned Dinesh D’Souza.

    Not true. I can’t comment on their intellects or imaginations, but “Progressives'” positions change constantly, and lately they’ve been changing so fast as to induce whiplash. Yesterday’s leftist orthodoxy becomes today’s heresy, but don’t throw it out because who knows, tomorrow it may become orthodox again. It’s become so bad that it’s impossible for leftists themselves to keep up with what positions they’re supposed to take today, so you get the occasional gaffes, for which they must subject themselves to self-criticism and seek the mob’s pardon.

    Cf 1984.

Barr’s Planet of the Apes comment would be appropriate for Joy Reed.

What about the lying?
No apologies?

I still don’t get why Planet of the Apes hasn’t been pulled from the shelves. Apparently it’s dog whistle racism.

Between Kathy Griffin’s apology and those of Reid and S. Bee, it’s hard not to conclude that their purpose is mostly perfunctory and an effort to signal advertisers or agents or producers that they will now be more cautious in public. In other words, it isn’t sincere. It’s an act. And act quickly exposed.

Hey Yellow, dude… You got to fire your writer. Your talking points suck. They make you look fat.

    Don’t be too hard on him (or her) as he is a tool of the inner circle and he will be discarded when his utility drops to zero. Many supporters of the French Revolution lost their heads after their side won.

Joy Reid will be protected by the Central Committee until she is no longer a useful tool to them. She will then be disposed of quietly or with much noise a la Roseanne. It is all a matter of utility in advancing the narrative. It is not about substance. To the Central Committee, Joy has no intrinsic value as a person. She obviously still has some value as a tool to them. The key to making any sense out of this is the story behind the story.

Given her long record of bullshit, I fail to understand why anyone expects more of Reid and her compatriots. This is exactly what she’s always done.

As a shameless hypocrite and leftist hack (forgive my redundancy) no one can be surprised that this disgusting creature lies so frequently that is only employable by MSNBC. Her M. O. is extracted of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky.

We all know if she’d just said she’d “evolved” from the very beginning that this wouldn’t even have been a blip, yes? It’s her defense which dragged this out. I don’t take it personally, because I don’t think of her as a person better than this. It’s only her and her lawyer’s unnecessary bluster that made this a larger issue to begin with.

Hey Yellow stain. You made my day. I get off every time a snowflake melts away with my comment. Keep it up (inside your esphincter of course).

JBourke, what do you mean she’s evolved? Like when a Pitechantropus evolved into an Australopithecus? Blame Darwin.

    In Planet of the Apes they were genetically engineered to be smarter that then contemporary humans, leaving humans on the wrong side of the Bell Curve, Joy Reid is definitely on the wrong side of the Bell Curve. While the suggestion that linage was in part Muslim may be considered an insult, being compared to smarter than humans Planet of the Apes was not an insult.

    Some people are far too quick to be insulted, much of that may have financial motives.

    Reid was in large part elected by a group who were marginally dumber that her. If Barr can be fired for her comments, then Reid should sure as hell be fired for hers.

‘Evolved’, when used to describe anyone from anywhere on the political spectrum, is just a euphemism for ‘abandoned really bad beliefs’.

DouglasJBender | June 2, 2018 at 10:18 pm

I thought a person saying their thinking has “evolved” meant that their thinking is mindless and random.

Shining example of affirmative political racism. She is only allowed to her job because of her skin color AND her political bent.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to healthguyfsu. | June 2, 2018 at 11:16 pm

    She was elevated (if that’s the proper term for getting to host a show on MSNBC) to her current position with MSNBC fully aware of every public ugly claim she’d ever made. As I said before, she’s a host at MSNBC not despite of her earlier bullshit, but specifically because of it. That’s the attitude MSNBC (and ABC, CBS, CNN, et al) wants in its on-air ‘talent’. Her skin color and political is her ‘talent’, like you said. There’s nothing else about her one would consider talent.
