Joy Reid to host 'The ReidOut' weeknights on MSNBC

Joy Reid, an MSNBC political analyst and weekend host, has been tapped to lead the 7 p.m. weeknight hour, the network said Thursday.

Reid's new Washington-based show, “The ReidOut,” will debut July 20. It will feature one-on-one conversations with politicians and newsmakers and cover the political issues of the day, drawing from Reid’s experience of covering the intersection of race, justice and culture.

Reid, one of the network's most prominent Black on-air personalities, will take the time slot previously occupied by Chris Matthews, who announced his retirement in March after a series of events that resulted in criticism of his statements about Bernie Sanders, Black lawmakers and comments he had made to female journalists and coworkers.

Reid is the host of the weekend show "AM Joy," which will feature a rotating lineup of hosts until a permanent replacement is named in the fall.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid expected to replace Chris Matthews on primetime show

MSNBC is reportedly eying Joy Reid to replace Chris Matthews as the host of a primetime news and opinion program.

The network is negotiating with Reid to step into a 7 p.m. slot and precede MSNBC’s primetime programs hosted by Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes, sources told The Wall Street Journal.<:p>

Reid currently hosts the network’s weekend morning program “AM Joy.”

She’d fill a void that came when Matthews abruptly resigned from his longtime role as “Hardball” host in early March after a sexual harassment allegation had surfaced against him.

Both sides are still discussing Reid’s new role and an agreement hasn’t been reached.

Should Joy Reid be punished for insensitive blog post by MSNBC

By George L. Cook III African American Reports

MSNBC is standing by Joy Reid in the wake of new revelations about even more incendiary old blog posts. Reid's old blog post, some of which date back to 2005 include homophobic slurs and 9/11 conspiracy theories about the federal government.

This probably wouldn't be much of a story now if Reid had not lied about her account being hacked, just owned up to the post, and told us all that she is not that person anymore. I believe myself and many would have given her the benefit of the doubt and forgiven her.

Now I don't think that she should lose her job, but there are those that believe that Reid should be punished for those older post and going so far as to say that she should lose her job at MSNBC.

What do you think?
