Joy Reid : Hypocritical Homophobic Hack?

The Evidence Is Not With Joy Reid

A strange story about MSNBC host Joy Reid has been unfolding for a week. It began when a Twitter user with about 1,000 followers, @Jamie_Maz, dug up what appeared to be homophobic posts on Reid’s defunct blog, the Reid Report. They were similar in nature to posts that Reid apologized for as “insensitive” back in December, after @Jamie_Maz brought those to light.

 Reid released a statement to Mediaite saying that she’d been hacked and was not responsible for the posts. “In December I learned that an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, to include offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology,” Reid said.

The posts had been dug up on the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, which maintains copies of many pages on the web. When Reid said she’d been hacked, many jumped to the conclusion that it was the Wayback Machine that had been hacked. On its blog, the Internet Archive said that Reid’s lawyers had contacted them about a possible hack, but that they had no indication that one had occurred.

“This past December, Reid’s lawyers contacted us, asking to have archives of the blog (blog.reidreport.com) taken down, stating that ‘fraudulent’ posts were ‘inserted into legitimate content’ in our archives of the blog,” they wrote. “Her attorneys stated that they didn’t know if the alleged insertion happened on the original site or with our archives (the point at which the manipulation is to have occurred, according to Reid, is still unclear to us).”

On review, the Internet Archive “found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the Wayback Machine versions.”

As he notes, it is possible that someone did this, but “extraordinarily unlikely.”

Among the implausible factors is that for Reid’s story to be correct, someone would have had to hack her blog back in the ’00s, but no one, including Reid herself, noticed the invalid posts.

Joy Reid is a joke, and she's also one of the people who advocated and personally popularized the "Bernie Bros." shit.

Although I can't help but to think she's getting thrown under the bus.

I've been calling out this fat cunt on her bullshit for years.

And what's funny is MSNBC is defending her.  Usually they fire people for this shit.  Remember when that dyke Maddow got Baldwin fired for his off air homo comments?

That entire network is a joke.

MSNBC only fires people or ignores possible guests that challenge their increasingly corporate slant. They have been heading that way since the days of showing Phil Donahue the door.

Otoh you can be a huge Cheney/Bush loving warhawk, "health" industry shill, or climate science denialist and they will pony up huge sums provided you don't question their big money agenda.

This headline and the accompying soundbytes made me laugh. Even though it is actually pretty sad.


MSNBC pulls a Sinclair, compares corporate owner Comcast to Nelson Mandela

https://www.rt.com/usa/425145-msnbc-pulls-sinclair-mandela/

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180424/08595139700/comcast-owned-msnbc-blasted-8-minute-news-love-letter-to-comcast.shtml

Comcast-owned MSNBC this week took a bit of a beating for an eight-minute "news" segment that was effectively little more than a sappy love letter to their parent company. The segment featured top Comcast lobbyist David Cohen, who years ago began calling himself the company's "Chief Diversity Officer" to tap dance around federal lobbying rules (Comcast yells at us whenever we point that out). The program, aired during the company's Morning Joe program, waxed poetic about Comcast's altruism, at one point using Al Sharpton to compare Comcast’s corporate volunteerism with Nelson Mandela’s lifetime of civil rights work.

While Comcast volunteer programs certainly can and do help people in some limited capacities, Cohen has perfected the act of using Comcast's minority and low-income advocacy as a grotesque lobbying weapon to perpetuate policies that actively harm the communities Comcast professes to be helping. For example, Comcast routinely pays some less ethical minority advocacy groups to parrot policies that actively harm their constituents, whether that's supporting the death of net neutrality, the company's latest megamerger, or the elimination of privacy protections for consumers.

My favorite is how they are hiring war criminals/ war hawks and ex-CIA liars only because they hate Trump.

The same people who lied us into the Iraq war are now our heroes I guess.  Just because they hate Trump.

Trying to say it was a "hack" is beyond stupid. Of course, lies like that is the fashionable thing in American politics now.

Skimming over the actual "homophobic" comments there were dug up, I didn't quite get what was awful about them. She was basically saying that straight people get grossed out by looking at gay sex and that gay marriage was a stupid political issue to focus on. Seems mostly like a case of thoughtpolicing the past from a present perspective.

This is just layer on layer of stupid nonsense.

They didn't actually buy B99. They already owned it. It was being made by Universal Television which is the production side of NBC. It's the same scenario as Last Man Standing.

But I concede. There are examples of beautiful things blooming from the trash heap that is Comcast
