Melissa Harris-Perry, whose greatest achievement was Tampon earrings, is out at MSNBC

Melissa Harris-Perry and her cable TV bosses have gone splitsville, both sides said on Sunday.

“Farewell #Nerdland. Inviting diverse new voices to table was a privilege,” tweeted Harris-Perry, who threw a very public tantrum last week in the wake of her weekend show being pre-empted in recent weeks in favor of live news cover of the Democratic and GOP presidential primaries. “Grateful for years of support & criticism.”

An MSNBC rep confirmed the network and Harris-Perry had “parted ways.”

    If only this meant she was gone. Unfortunately she will likely either end up in a higher profile place (not hard after MSNBC), or even more likely on some sort of board or committee that has actual authority to pass rules and regulations to harm those she disagrees with.

    • She is a race baiter, she can’t help but fall upward.

    Good grief – getting FIRED from MSNBC – a lefty being fired by MSNBC. She must have said and/or done something really, REALLY STUPID. I

    • She was just being herself.

      You gotta imagine they’ve been looking for a solid excuse to can her for some time, something that would have stood up to her inevitable screeches about discrimination.

    Tampon Earrings. Seems appropriate for such a complete twat.

    This is what happens when you flood the market with crazy.
    Its value goes down.
    Supply and demand.

    • That may well be the case here, MNSBC became the crazy left super warehouse.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        They were the most efficient producers of crazy since ergot poisoning went the way of the buffalo.
        They were the Henry Ford of crazy.
        First they mechanized it, then they weaponized it!

    I’m tho thorry to thee her go……sarc

  • “diverse new voices” Read: so crazy/unpopular/irrational that no one else would have wasted broadcast bandwidth on them.

    not surprising she was insane even by academic standards

    • David Murrell

      I agree with your sympanthies. But I must disagree with your use of the phrase “insane by academic standards”. There are no standards in academia which rule out insanity. Ms. Harris-Perry would fit in nicely at any university. Her career, I fact, would prosper in such anti-intellectual environments.

    Unfortunately for her, Al Jazeera America will be shuttering shortly.
