Let’s finish off Friday of a contentious week with a hilarious story making fun of liberals.

Apparently Melissa Harris Perry has gotten really angry that her show has been getting the shaft from MSNBC during the election season, and she’s boycotting her own show now!!

From the Hill:

“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. I love our show. I want it back.”
Harris-Perry resents the show’s pre-emption over the last two weeks and MSNBC dictating how it presents content, the report said.

“It is perfectly fine, 100 percent reasonable and perfectly acceptable for MSNBC to decide they no longer want the M.H.P. show,” said Harris-Perry, who has hosted the show since 2012. “But they should say that, they should cancel the show, they should stand up.

“And maybe it would be rewarded with huge ratings, but they shouldn’t kill us by attrition and take us off the air without telling anybody, including us. That for me is what’s painful and difficult.”

Harris-Perry added that she does not see believe racial bias is motivating MSNBC’s decision-making.

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

Jamil Smith, a reporter for MTV News, posted to Medium an email that Harris-Perry wrote explaining her reasoning.

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

“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,” she added.

“While MSNBC may believe that I am worthless, I know better. I know who I am. I know why MHP Show is unique and valuable. I will not sell short myself or this show. I am not hungry for empty airtime. I care only about substantive, meaningful, and autonomous work. When we can do that, I will return — not a moment earlier.”

NBC News downplayed Harris-Perry’s remarks Friday, arguing that presidential election coverage is essential content.

Some people on Twitter are angry and calling MSNBC racist:

I kinda want to take a victory lap on this one, because I only started my “who can say the stupidest thing on Melissa Harris Perry’s show” contest a few weeks ago on the Right Scoop, but we took her down!! LOL!!

Pat yourselves on the back, party people.

And what the heck, go ahead and have an OPEN THREAD!!! If you want, you can discuss what is the funniest and stupidest moment from Melissa Harris Perry’s apparently defunct show.
