    Melissa Harris-Perry will not appear on her MSNBC show Saturday because she said she feels editorial control was taken from her.

    According to the New York Times‘ Joe Kilbin, Harris-Perry grew frustrated her show has been pre-empted throughout the presidential election. In an e-mail obtained by the Times, Harris-Perry told her co-workers the show had been “taken.”:

    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.
