Melissa Harris-Perry: I will not be used as a tool

If she knows nothing else, Melissa Harris-Perry really knows how to burn bridges, except she would probably call it speaking truth to power.


Melissa Harris-Perry is refusing to do her show at MSNBC, the home sweet home of the questionably talented partisan pundit. It seems that the lily-white bosses that lurk upstairs unseen by the lowly network masses have been awfully mean to MHP and she is just not going to stand for it anymore. A private resignation email is too good for them, so she made it public!

No one on the third floor has even returned an email, called me, or initiated or responded to any communication of any kind from me for nearly a month. It is profoundly hurtful to realize that I work for people who find my considerable expertise and editorial judgment valueless to the coverage they are creating.

This is simply unthinkable, and likely sinister, in a season where election coverage only takes up all but 1% of news on every news channel everywhere. MHP’s own words are illustrative and persuasive:

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.
