Omarosa Manigault Newman, who once worked in the White House under the official title of mixologist of the crew, is back on her mixtape grind and while she didn’t drop another secretly recorded gem, she’s been speculating on who wrote the hit New York Times op-ed and confirming that many White House staffers actually…

MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid is apologizing (once again) for inflammatory posts unearthed from her now-defunct blog, the Reid Report.
On Saturday morning’s AM Joy, the brilliant host of the MSNBC weekend staple, Joy-Ann Reid, began her segment apologizing for words that may have hurt those in the LGBTQ community, calling the commentary “despicable.”
After screenshots of blog posts by Joy Reid surfaced last week, everyone, including me, shot the MSNBC host a healthy dose of side-eye when she explained away homophobic statements from as far back as 2006 by saying that her old blog was hacked.
The Today show is a-searching for someone to take up the space that longtime host Matt Lauer was rightly booted off of after being accused of sexual misconduct, and it looks as if MSNBC Live anchor Craig Melvin is in the running.
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid has issued a statement apologizing for a series of homophobic blog posts she wrote a decade ago, calling them “insensitive, tone-deaf and dumb.”
Joy-Ann Reid is quickly becoming the face of sanity and standards in a news industry fast devolving into chaos as a presidential administration and its minions consistently push fake news and conspiracy theories.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid is known for her poise, intelligence and depth of knowledge about politics. But clearly she will cut you (with her words, of course) if you cross a line.
Joy-Ann Reid has become a national treasure. As one of few black faces in an anchor chair on MSNBC after the network dealt with the sudden departure of Melissa Harris-Perry in February 2016 and this February’s exit of Tamron Hall, Reid is one of only three African Americans with a regular show on the network. And…
When Rachel Maddow tweeted that she had Vladimir TrumPutin’s tax return, it was as if Beyoncé and Frank Ocean had made a duets album that leaked at midnight. We all rushed to see what the hell she’d found. But in the end it was less Blond Lemonade and more Geraldo, his dumb-ass mustache and Al Capone’s empty vault.

It isn’t funny. Thousands of fictional people lost their lives! Fictional families are still in mourning trying to pick up the fictional pieces that have been scattered since the fictional Bowling Green Massacre!
In their groveling assent to the “people of the country who are so forgotten”—you know, real Americans—NBC is reportedly contributing its own special brand of self-interested racism to the culture by keeping daytime TV and news as white as it wanna be.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is not here for Donald Trump, his racist comments, his sexist comments, all his comments or his inauguration. She doesn’t want any part of this president, and she couldn’t hide her disgust during a recent appearance on MSNBC Live With Tamron Hall. Waters, the representative for…
Before we get into what it means to give no fucks about what White People™ think, we must first establish what it doesn't mean. Because existing in this fuck-less space is complicated, and it's easy to conflate and confuse existing there with other things that exist independent of its existence.
The cover photo from my Facebook profile is a screenshot of my appearance on Melissa Harris-Perry last August. I don't get anxious much when meeting new people; at least not anymore.
