Joy Reid Reportedly Losing Her MSNBC Show

Joy Reid Reportedly Losing Her MSNBC Show

“Reid has allies at Comcast, however, she is now viewed as “unmanageable” by many”

MSNBC’s Joy Reid may be on her way out, according to an industry insider. If the report is accurate, it really should come as no surprise. Reid’s ratings are terrible, not to mention her ability to analyze the day’s political news.

Reid’s show seems to exist only to push the left’s latest narrative about how awful conservatives are.

Jon Nicosia, who used to work for Mediaite and IJR made the announcement on Twitter:

Ben Johnson of the Daily Wire provides a recent example of the sort of discourse that passes for commentary on Reid’s show:

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Says Conservatives Are ‘A Party Of Selfish People Who Cannot Play Well With Others’

In a stunning lack of self-awareness, MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guests on Monday night suggested that “white, so-called Christian conservatives” are “selfish” people.

“They’re white, so-called Christian conservatives who feel like this country was built by them, for them. Their party, the Republicans,” is merely “a party of selfish people who cannot play well with others,” said Reid in her opening monologue. “They even have their own cable networks.”

She then compared Christian conservatives to a classic “Star Trek” character named Charlie, whom she described as an “annoying alien incel who destroys everything around him when he doesn’t get his way.”

Reid claimed that white, Christian conservatives wrongly believe the country is being taken away from them. “A certain percentage of Americans feel like the country used to focus on them and fixate on them, and they were the main character. And now that they feel that they’re not the main character, and they don’t always win, and they don’t get to do what they want, and they don’t get to have their way, it’s all an outrage. It’s all a crime. Everything must be overturned. so it goes back to the way they thought it should be,” she said in a stream-of-consciousness.

You may recall that back in 2018, Joy Reid was under fire for homophobic comments on her old blog, and claimed she was hacked.

John Sexton of Hot Air wonders if that chapter has something to do with this:

As I argued at the time, the problem wasn’t so much that Joy had made some remarks about gay marriage that were still pretty common at the time she made them (remember Obama claimed he was against it when he ran for office). What really disqualified Reid was her 2018 lies about having written all of it. She even dragged the FBI into it allegedly.

Has their been some new information which has finally convinced people she was less than truthful? Or did the MSNBC brass just decide she’s not getting high enough ratings to justify their decision to abandon their alleged principles? Because Reid’s ratings are down substantially from where they were a year ago.

This news got a strong reaction on Twitter:

We’ll see if Nicosia’s scoop is true. It really would be something to see Chris Cuomo out at CNN and Reid out at MSNBC just a year after Trump left office.

UPDATE:

Nicosia is standing by his reporting in the face of denials:

I love the smell of schadenfreude in the morning.

Immediately thought of Gutfeld on seeing the headline, losing material as he often says, and there was his tweet. He will always have The View.

Who?

Really, the only time I have ever heard of this person is when some Conservative or other complained about how crazy/stupid/leftist/wrong she was. I suspect that what ratings she has came from those people, looking for something to complain about.

    Why not watch some of her numerous videos, rather than trying to divine what other people say about her? = Direct vs. indirect experience.

      Gosport in reply to Sally MJ. | January 7, 2022 at 12:36 pm

      Because she is a racist harridan who should never have been given the opportunity to inflict her disgusting views on an international audience.

      Clicking on her links can enable more of her bad behavior.

      I don’t care enough to bother. She is a non-entity.

      AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Sally MJ. | January 8, 2022 at 2:22 pm

      Really Sally? Watch some of her “numerous videos” instead of trying to divine what other people say about her?

      Bullshit. Pure and simple.

      I know a stove is hot. I don’t need to have “direct experience.”

      I know a train will kill me if I stand on the tracks in front of it. I don’t need to have “direct experience.”

      I know having seggs with gay men will more than likely cause me to have HIV. I don’t need to have “direct experience.”

      I know that liberal news talking heads are liberal. I don’t need “direct experience.”

      And I know I wouldn’t fuck Joyless Reid with your dïck.

      Another harridan bites the dust.

No show at all? Not even a move to a lousy timeslot like they’ve done with other hosts who had good timeslots but bad ratings (for example, Al Sharpton)?

This may be a bit of hyperbole, but isn’t nearly every MSNBC show existing to push the left’s latest narrative on how awful conservatives are? (And Trump, can’t let go of him.)

Too stupid to be helpful to the leftist cause, is the judgment. The soap opera isn’t supplying the emotional hits required by her viewers.

This is all part of the plan. Joy Reid, Lebron James, Colin Kaepernick, Antonio Brown and planning to start their own network. They should call it the “It’s Not My Fault You Racists!!!” Network

Ahh…..

“There is no Joy in Mudville…”

Strike Three! Y’er OUT!

Joy Reid proved the adage. Dumb has no bottom.

Comanche Voter | January 7, 2022 at 12:22 pm

She’s had three strikes. One–she’s not interesting; Two–she’s annoying; Three–and her ratings are in the toilet.

Sorry Joy–don’t let the door slap ya on the backside as you depart.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Comanche Voter. | January 7, 2022 at 2:35 pm

    Four…she’s ugly and unfunny with her hot takes

    Pasadena Peabody in reply to Comanche Voter. | January 7, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Five–she’s misappropriating the word joy. She’s a bitter, miserable, unhappy and totally wretched specimen of a human being.

      I always thought there was more than a bit of irony in regard to her name???

        MajorWood in reply to WISteve. | January 8, 2022 at 1:02 pm

        I think the pattern is that anyone who is named Joy was rised in a house that was the psychological opposite. Similarly, I am desperate so I am going to name my daughter “Hope.” I am going out on a limb and suggesting that any girl named Chastity has a mom who is a Hoe, that is, if the opposites pattern holds up.

Truly awwwwwww-inspiring news.

“Less than truthful?” is this a euphemism to describe racist, bigot, and homophobic hate spewing from her mouth?

What’s really amazing is that it took over 3 years for this failure to reach its fruition at the Microsoft National Broadcast Company.

    Whatever happened to Clippie, the helpful AI icon that would pop up on the screen and say things like, “It looks like you’re trying to consume political disinformation! Can I help you with that?”

Will CNN hire her to replace Cuomo?

Someone somewhere has finally convinced TPTB that people like Reid are hurting the left more than helping.

it appears those allies have found out she has been “less than truthful about past incidents”

translating to normal people speak “she lies through her teeth constantly.”

Good news for Reid: Now she’s free to enter a career path more suited to her talents. Like, oh say, operating a fryer at Arby’s.

I don’t understand how Reid could lose her job. She exemplifies every virtue in MSNBC’s mission statement. She is the personification it’s business model.

There is only ONE edgy journalistic practice that might further enhance her value to her MSNBC followers, and I’m sure that Jeffrey Toobin could coach her on that. That would put her in the MSNBC Hall of Fame.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Q. | January 8, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    Hmmm. Is Toobin going to teach her how to pull out her peniz and wank on camera?

Just found out that this wretched woman is not even African -American. Congo on daddies side Guyana on mommies, but was able to steal an affirmative action slot in Harvard from authentic african Americans.
Why aren’t authentic african americans screaming about this? Her father’s side may have been slave traders. we owe her NOTHING!

    henrybowman in reply to avi natan. | January 7, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    I’m not even following your objection. Is it that her Congo daddy somehow wasn’t African, or is it that neither of her parents were American?

      avi natan in reply to henrybowman. | January 7, 2022 at 7:37 pm

      they and she are not African- Americans.
      they didn’t come in the Middle Passage, didn’t live through reconstruction, Jim Crow or the Civil Rights era. Immigrants who may be black are not african American and deserve nothing.
      Or do you believe in the Rosie Ruiz school of affirmative action?

Losing her show? I’ll believe it when I see it. Reid has black skin and a vagina, and MSNBC could be in for a world of hurt with its racist/sexist viewership if she is removed.

“Reid’s show seems to exist only to push the left’s latest narrative about how awful conservatives are.”
That’s not fair.
It also exists to continually validate conservative narratives about how brainless, vindictive, and outright racist the left’s opinion leaders are.

Reid vituperatively and pre-emptively alienates more than half her own audience, then lowers the IQ of the remainder an average of one point per episode.
I can’t believe MSNBC is looking to cashier a goldmine like her.
