Re: Whose interpretation? Ours or theirs?

Peter, Peter, my friend, why does your post seem to be a condemnation of my support for and defense of MSNBC? Where have I ever defended that news network? Maybe you need to be reminded that Tamron Hall was just another in the number of Black faces that were simply eliminated from MSNBC's line up. I'm sure you remember the Tulane University professor, the dynamic Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, who was suddenly pulled like Ms. Hall from her MSNBC's Sunday morning show. And there was Toure and others.

Hey man, in the interest of fairness, and not just a one-sided dismissal, let's not forget that Keith Olbermann (as White as they come) was likewise summarily dismissed from MSNBC's nightly lineup. Who was a more fierce critic of President George W Bush and his puppeteer, Dick Cheney, than Olbermann? Yet despite his popularity and huge ratings, MSNBC kicked him too, to the curb. Btw, can you imagine if Keith was still at that network during Trump and these tumultuous times? His ratings would have gone through the roof!!

So Peter, money and race may not have been the sole determinants in the firing at MSNBC. However, that's not to say they may not have been huge factors.
