Here's a letter she allegedly wrote to inform her "Nerdland" viewers of her snit.
As you know by now, my name appears on the weekend schedule for MSNBC programming from South Carolina this Saturday and Sunday. I appreciate that many of you responded to this development with relief and enthusiasm. To know that you have missed working with me even a fraction of how much I�ve missed working with all of you is deeply moving. However, as of this morning, I do not have any intention of hosting this weekend. Because this is a decision that affects all of you, I wanted to take a moment to explain my reasoning.
Some unknown decision-maker, presumably Andy Lack or Phil Griffin, has added my name to this spreadsheet, but nothing has changed in the posture of the MSNBC leadership team toward me or toward our show. Putting me on air seems to be a decision being made solely to save face because there is a growing chorus of questions from our viewers about my notable absence from MSNBC coverage.
Social media has noted the dramatic change in editorial tone and racial composition of MSNBC�s on-air coverage. In addition, Dylan Byers of CNN has made repeated inquiries with MSNBC�s leadership and with me about the show and what appears to be its cancellation. I have not responded to reporters or social media inquiries. However, I am not willing to appear on air in order to quell concerns about the disappearance of our show and our voice.
Here is the reality: our show was taken -- without comment or discussion or notice -- in the midst of an election season. After four years of building an audience, developing a brand, and developing trust with our viewers, we were effectively and utterly silenced.
Lot of drama here over someone's show being "taken" due to, I assume, poor ratings, and general silliness.
Now, MSNBC would like me to appear for four inconsequential hours to read news that they deem relevant without returning to our team any of the editorial control and authority that makes MHP Show distinctive.
More drama-- that they deem relevant. So conspiratorial!
Dude you lost your show because you suck. Persevere to endure. Rub some dirt on it. Walk it off. Put some butter on it.
