    MSNBC host boycotts network: ‘I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head’


    ... “I will not be used as a tool for [management’s] purposes,” Harris-Perry wrote in the memo. “I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by [NBC News Chairman Andy] Lack, [MSNBC President Phil] Griffin, or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back. I have wept more tears than I can count, and I find this deeply painful, but I don’t want to be back on air at any cost” ...

    MSNBC will cut ties with Melissa Harris-Perry. Whatever happened here, it’s too bad


    ... This much is clear: A program that has broken the staid mold for weekend political shows is not on the air with its intended host and architect. That the status of a show on which guests and content have provided context and rare insight into a changing nation passes strange. Finally, that the show has been relegated to the realm of the non-essential during a presidential election in which who and what matters in the United States seem to be central questions, well, that just seems fundamentally unwise ...
