    Melissa Harris-Perry Walks Off Her MSNBC Show After Pre-emptions

    • an email to co-workers this week that her show had effectively been taken away from her and that she felt “worthless” in the eyes of NBC News executives, who are restructuring MSNBC.

      “Here is the reality: Our show was taken — without comment or discussion or notice — in the midst of an election season,” she wrote in the email, which became public on Friday. “After four years of building an audience, developing a brand and developing trust with our viewers, we were effectively and utterly silenced.”

      In a phone interview, Ms. Harris-Perry confirmed she would not appear on the show this weekend. She said she had received no word about whether her show, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays and Sundays, had been canceled, but said she was frustrated that her time slot had faced pre-emptions for coverage of the presidential election. She said she had not appeared on the network at all “for weeks” and that she was mostly sidelined during recent election coverage in South Carolina and New Hampshire. (She was asked to return this weekend.)

      In her email, Ms. Harris-Perry wrote that she was not sure if the NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, or Phil Griffin, the MSNBC president, were involved in the way her show was handled recently, but she directed blame toward both.

      “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” she wrote. “I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by Lack, Griffin or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back.”

      Ms. Harris-Perry is black, and Mr. Lack and Mr. Griffin are white. In the phone interview on Friday, Ms. Harris-Perry clarified her remarks and said she did not think race played a role in her recent absence from the air.

      “I don’t know if there is a personal racial component,” she said. “I don’t think anyone is doing something mean to me because I’m a black person.”

      An NBC News spokesman said in a statement, “In this exciting and unpredictable presidential primary season, many of our daytime programs have been temporarily upended by breaking political coverage, including M.H.P. This reaction is really surprising, confusing and disappointing.”

      For MSNBC, this is unwelcome news during a heated election. Last year, after its scandal involving Brian Williams, Mr. Lack, the former head of NBC News, was brought back to run the news division, and one of his chief missions was to fix the ailing MSNBC, which significantly trails Fox News and CNN in viewership. In last few months, Mr. Lack has steered MSNBC away from its liberal identity and moved it toward harder news in the daytime hours. Since January, the network has had round-the-clock election coverage (including the reintroduction of Mr. Williams as co-anchor on primary nights), and notched strong ratings gains year-over-year in the mornings and afternoon.

      Ms. Harris-Perry, who is also a professor at Wake Forest University, has hosted her MSNBC show since 2012. She has used the show to explore issues like social justice and racism, and diversity has been the centerpiece of the show since its start.

    I am a liberal and I watch MSNBC but I never cared for her show. She certainly comes across as a prima donna and may have made it so that she can't work in the industry.

    There is nothing more unintentionally hysterical than when liberals attack each other for not valuing their special made up version of entitlement.

    I'm sure her 73 viewers will be quite enraged. And who watches tv from 10am to Noon on a Saturday?

    so she walked into work one day only to find out she no longer had a job?

    that's not really uncommon
    happens to most of us at least once

    life goes on

    What a shame, another anti-whitey show is done. Only 965 more to go.

    She's so light-skinned that I'm guessing she's either half or a quarter white. It makes you wonder why she hates white people so much.

    I never knew she was a professor. What does she teach, applied racism?

    Can she lose that job too?

    Bahahaha. Good. She's vile. One of the biggest racists on TV. They took Sharpton's 5 day-a-week evening slot and stuck him on early Sunday morning. Guess they've had enough.

    Hey, give her credit. At least she's black, unlike that nincompoop Shawn King over at the NY Daily News.

    Wasn't she fired from Princeton & somewhere else?
    I can't stand her - she has a major chip on her shoulder.

    Plus, anyone that spends that much time on their hair is crazy ( those braids are ALWAYS super tight - she must spend 6 hours sitting in that salon chair getting them done weekly )

    You shouldn't give anybody credit just because they are black.

    Also she raised by her white mom in lily white neighborhoods. She also uses bronzer to make her blacker.

    How convenient. Now I won't have to put any effort into not viewing her show.
