(National Sentinel) Typical: If you hoping that the brass at NBC would do the right thing and fire MSBNC host Joy Reid over recently discovered homophobic posts, you are going to be disappointed.
They won’t. She will remain fully employed and on the air.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
MSNBC is sticking by its host, Joy Reid, and will keep her on the air, despite the discovery of anti-gay posts from her blog in the 2000s.
Reid has contacted law enforcement about the issue, and the network will hold off on taking any permanent action until they hear back, according to an NBC spokesperson who spoke with Politico.
Reid said her blog was hacked and her posts were compromised, but NBC declined to say if they will be conducting their own internal investigation, Politico reported. Reid did not reply to Politico’s request for comment.
An LGBTQ group revoked Reid’s “Straight for Equality in Media” award, which she was to receive in May.
Disruptive hackers had fabricated the slurs, Reid claimed; but as time went on, her story became more convoluted and began to fall apart.
This isn’t Reid’s first foray into homophobism.
In 2007, she went after former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, writing, “Miss Charlie, Miss Charlie. Stop pretending, brother. It’s okay that you don’t go for the ladies.”
On the same blog she now claims was “hacked.”
She apologized in December 2017, telling TheWrap: “This note is my apology to all who are disappointed by the content of blogs I wrote a decade ago, for which my choice of words and tone have legitimately been criticized. As a writer, I pride myself on a facility with language — an economy of words or at least some wisdom in the selection. However, that clearly has not always been the case.”
But now it appears as though she’ll get by with it, because the Left has all sets of different standards.
There is one standard for white men. One for conservatives. One for conservative white men. One for liberal white men. One for black men. One for black women who are obsessed with racism and who see it everywhere — but mostly in people who merely disagree with her Alt-Left point of view. Like Joy Reid.
“Most cable new shows are pretty varied, they cover a lot of topics,” The Daily Caller co-founder said. “But over on MSNBC, Joy Reid’s show is the exception. Her show has only one topic — how everyone who disagrees with her is a racist. She’s not a civil rights advocate, she’s just a monomaniac,” Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson observed earlier this year.
Of course, he’s right. Watching her program for a week will prove it.
Which is what we’ll all be able to do now that her network has decided to treat her differently for her homophobism that it would someone like, say, Tucker Carlson.
