Remember a couple of years ago, when it was revealed that Joy Reid’s old blog had all kinds of hateful and homophobic language on it?
She claimed her blog had been hacked and even said the FBI was looking into it.
Then, after a few weeks the story went away. That’s just one example of how Joy Reid lies.
Now she has been rewarded with a prime time slot on MSNBC.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Joy Reid to Take Over Chris Matthews’ MSNBC Time Slot
MSNBC has officially named as Joy Reid the new host of its 7 p.m. hour, filling the key early primetime slot that was vacated by Chris Matthews earlier this year.
In her new role, Reid becomes one of a handful of Black women to anchor an American evening news program. The last high profile Black woman to host a nightly news show on a major network was Gwen Ifill, who was named co-anchor with Judy Woodruff of PBS Newshour in 2013. Ifill died of cancer in 2016.
Reid will host The ReidOut, which will start July 20 and originate from Washington D.C. She currently hosts the weekend morning show AM Joy and has been with the channel since 2011. She had previously hosted an afternoon program called The Reid Report.
Reid’s new program will cover major political issues and feature one-on-one conversations with politicians and newsmakers.
“I’m thrilled to have Joy on five nights a week,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a statement. “She’s thoughtful and brings so much depth to her reporting. She’s made for this moment.”
Does MSNBC think no one rememebers?
Joy Reid claimed that her homophobic blog posts were not only inserted by hackers, they inserted them into the Wayback Machine, as well.

Joy Reid, MSNBC's new weeknight primetime host, has repeatedly spread left-wing misinformation… like the time she posted a photo accusing a woman of calling a teenage boy a "dirty Mexican" (the boy debunked Reid's claim) https://t.co/9wNVLpgcCk
