MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry made good on her vow to boycott her own show on Saturday, refusing to anchor her weekend program as she wages an extraordinary public war with the executives whom she accuses of having “taken” her show from her.
“I will not be used as a tool for their purposes. I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by [NBC News chairman Andrew] Lack, [MSNBC president Phil] Griffin, or MSNBC. “
Actually, sweetie, that’s exactly what you are and exactly what you have always been to the white leftists who run MSDNC. You may have a Ph.D in Political Science, but so what? There are plenty of people who are way smarter and more accomplished than you who don’t have shows on major cable news channels, and who are capable of asking smarter questions than “Would you quack like a duck for us, Mr Attorney-General?” For that matter, leftist pseudo-intellectuals who can spout such idiocies as “Children don’t belong to their parents, but to the state” and “Star Wars is rayciss because Darth Vader is black” can be found four and five deep behind every Starbucks counter. Why do you think MSDNC gave you a show and not any of them?
