Sources at Comcast are suggesting that an “unmanageable” Joy Reid will lose her 7PM EST MSNBC show “The Reid Out” this coming spring. The message from the network appears to be that her show is suffering a ratings drop, and that she is likely being fired due to repeated incidents of untruthfulness and her unlikable personality.
Reid’s past behavior include homophobic statements posted to various blogs, which she initially lied about writing. After her comments resurfaced, she claimed to be a victim of an elaborate hack.
The comments included statements such as “adult gay men tend to be attracted to very young, post-pubescent types,” followed by an acknowledgement that she was openly homophobic.
