NBC News will keep Joy Reid on-air as investigation into alleged anti-LGBT remarks continues

Published

NBC News is not ready to bench MSNBC host and political commentator Joy Reid after alleged anti-LGBT posts from her long-shuttered blog were surfaced by an amateur sleuth on Twitter. Reid has stated her site was hacked and denies she wrote the posts. She says she contacted a cyber-security expert who investigated and has issued a report that finds there was a breach of her site.

An “NBC spokesperson, who declined to be named, said that Reid has referred the matter to law enforcement and that the network would wait for that process to play out before taking any action,” Politico reports.

“NBC representatives declined to say whether the network itself will investigate the posts.”

Politico points to a few statements that were supposedly found on her blog, which she closed in 2011, and denies writing.

“Most straight people cringe at the sight of two men kissing,” one of the posts reads. “The nature of political correctness is that gay people are allowed to say straight sex is gross but the reverse is considered to be patently homophobic.”

There are, however, tweets from 2010-2011 about Ann Coulter that are being called transphobic.

Many are surprised, given her support of the LGBT community over the years.

GOP senator admits she’s hoping Trump’s Ukraine scheme successfully sinks Biden

Published

In a press conference with reporters on Monday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) gave the game away by implying she hopes that President Donald Trump's scheme to dig up foreign dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden successfully sinks his candidacy and causes him to lose the Democratic caucuses in her state.

"Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening. And I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic caucus goers. Will they be supporting Vice President Biden at this point?"

The remarks came after White House lawyers spent hours trying to change the subject from Trump's attempts to extort the president of Ukraine with military aid, to the conspiracy theory surrounding Biden's son's work in Ukraine that he had been demanding they pursue.

Republicans defended ‘a vile scoundrel’ who is ‘racist’ and ‘a petty tyrant’ — and it wasn’t Donald Trump

Published

President Donald Trump's defense attorneys were blasted for their defense of a different president on Tuesday.

"I mean, of course Trump's lawyers are defending Andrew Johnson. Of course," noted MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes.

"Johnson was a vile scoundrel and a drunk and a racist and a petty tyrant whose presidency brought blood and shame upon this nation," Hayes continued. "That's the kindest characterization I could muster."

The host linked to a 2019 piece on Johnson that he wrote for The New York Times as a book review of "The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation by Brenda Wineapple.
