    MSNBC Stands By Joy Reid After She Apologizes For Controversial Blog Posts


    Joy Reid at a town hall event in New York on March 8, 2017.

    MSNBC said Friday that it is standing by host Joy Reid, who apologized for writing offensive blog posts that resurfaced this week and said she no longer holds the opinions found in them.

    “Some of the things written by Joy on her old blog are obviously hateful and hurtful,” the network said Friday of comments Reid wrote on her now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, more than a decade ago. “They are not reflective of the colleague and friend we have known at MSNBC for the past seven years. 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.”

    MSNBC’s statement comes two days after BuzzFeed reported on two controversial posts Reid wrote in 2006 and 2007. The posts feature a 9/11 conspiracy theory and a manipulated image of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) as a mass shooter. BuzzFeed resurrected them weeks after Reid claimed her blog had been hacked to feature homophobic content written under her name.

    “There are things I deeply regret and am embarrassed by, things I would have said differently and issues where my position has changed,” Reid, who now hosts the weekend show “AM Joy,” said Friday in a lengthy apology, adding that she has reached out to McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain regarding the incident.

    “I’ve also spoken openly about my evolution on many issues and know that I’m a better person today than I was over a decade ago,” she added.

    Reid’s apology did not reference her previous hacking claims, which her attorney said at the time were being investigated by the FBI. Neither did the statement from MSNBC, which previously pushed evidence claiming to support Reid’s hacking claims

    I'm so glad MSNLSD decided to stand behind Joy after giving Tweets that were hurtful and bigoted. After all, everyone makes mistakes and she said she was sorry.

    Kudos Ms. evolving Black Progressive! 😵

    But as Marauder rightly said, we should not be focused on such things.

    Sorry in advance.

    You spend all your time like a monk in endless prayer? Is that what your bio blurb is saying?

    So the fact that liberals ate hypocrites is just old news nobody cares about.

    I would have to agree. The US is such a banana republic.

    Yes, it's old news. But this doesn't change the fact that you are what you eat.
