Priceless! MSNBC asks own scandal-ridden Joy Reid, ‘What do you have to do to get fired from a network?’

Talk about tone deaf!

Prior to ABC cancelling the “Roseanne” sitcom Tuesday in the face of an ill-advised tweet from actress Roseanne Barr directed at Obama royalty member Valerie Jarrett, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked colleague Joy Reid, “what do you have to do on social media to get fired from a top-rated show on an American broadcast network?”


Reid being the woman behind blog posts featuring racist, bigoted, homophobic and Islamophobic content. The same woman who claimed that she was hacked, until the feeble excuse collapsed.

Incredibly, Reid, who has a weekend show on MSNBC, then claimed she did not write what she wrote because she could not “believe” she would write it.

“I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things because they are completely alien to me,” she proclaimed. “But I can definitely understand based on things I have tweeted and I have written in the past why some people don’t believe me.”

At which point her liberal media allies, people like Andrea Mitchell, quietly swept the controversy under the rug.

Reid rambled on in response to Mitchell’s question, saying white people feel it’s okay to compare black people to apes, before concluding it’s all President Donald Trump’s fault.

And while ABC sought the moral high ground in jettisoning Barr, who may or may not have known Jarrett was African American — she was born in Iran — the network took vile Keith Olbermann along with them.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement.

It’s all about “our company’s values,” as CNN’s Brian Stelter reported.

ESPN and ABC are owned by Disney, and the left-of-center sports network recently announced that Olbermann will co-host a number of “SportsCenter” shows.

Social media users were quick to remind Disney of the “values” represented by the foul-mouthed political commentator, and the double standard at play.
