Melissa Harris-Perry appears to be an early victim of the post-Obama world. She is not taking too well the changes being made at MSNBC where the “Lean Forward” network has been blown back by the likes of Fox and CNN in the ratings race. The network wants to put on more hard news versus the “social justice, can’t we all just get along, I wanna be like Oprah with a Phd” bullshit programming that Dr. Harris-Perry has been anchoring for the past four years.
I believe that given Mr. Obama’s pending departure from the White House, reality has set in. MSNBC doesn’t need any more blacks to sell the Obama narrative or offset the neo-bigotry narratives pushed by Fox Skews. In short, and on this point Dr. Harris-Perry is correct, she brings no value. She is “worthless” to MSNBC.
Now if CNN could only get rid of that asswipe Van Jones ….
