On Friday, MSNBC dropped a bombshell after cutting ties with host Tiffany Cross as the network opted not to renew Cross’ contract after two years.

There was plenty of reaction from the news media world, but rather than ignoring the elephant in the room on her show, Joy Reid signed off with a message of support to Cross after MSNBC ousted “The Cross Connection” host. 

“I just want to say one quick thing about my friend, colleague and sister, Tiffany Cross,” Reid noted on Friday’s edition of “Reid Out.” “She’s not just my friend. She is my sister. I love her. I support her. I was boosting for her to get the show that she created, “The Cross Connection.”

“She put her heart and soul into every day. And I just want to say that those on the far right who are attacking her on a social media app that I won’t name, you don’t understand how sisters move. So watch this space. We will be here; her sisters will be here to support anything Tiffany Cross ever does. Know that. Believe that.”

Executives at MSNBC reportedly were concerned about the anchor’s willingness to address statements made by cable-news hosts on other networks, such as Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. As a result, it might have played a role in her exit. 

Over the weekend, Cross provided a statement regarding the network’s decision to part ways.

    It’s really a shame that they don’t even have a once of shame either. They are acting like “it’s doesn’t matter about Black folks “. So, I am with you, in not watching MSNBC anymore.

    It is unbelievable that MSNBC would cut ties with Tiffany Cross. There is no reason for it, and I will cut back watching their programs, except for the Joy Reid Show.

Lawrence O’Donnell: Jesse Watters Proves ‘How Stupid You Can Be’ on Fox News

“Jesse Watters is the newest liar to occupy the 8 PM slot on Fox, the lying channel.”

Former President Donald Trump parrotted a talking point from Fox News primetime host Jesse Watters. MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell took extreme displeasure with the situation.

During the jury selection for the first trial against Trump, a juror was asked if they believed that anyone was above the law. When they said no, Watters said “I don’t know about that,” before claiming it was an attempt to “rig this jury” with “undercover liberal activists”, which Trump cited Watters for unveiling.

On The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, the MSNBC host took Watters to task for what believed was a purposely inaccurate encapsulation.

“Jesse Watters is the newest liar to occupy the 8 PM slot on Fox, the lying channel,” O’Donnell began. “The previous occupant of the 8 p.m. slot had told so many of those lies, that even Fox decided they had to let him go. And the occupant before that one (Bill O’Reilly) … lost his job only after being exposed as a grievous serial sexual harasser at Fox.

“Jesse Watters is the same person who — last week — said publicly that he believed that the minimum wage produces an income of $100,000 a year in America. That’s how stupid you can be on Fox at 8 PM, or in the case of Jesse Watters, also at 5 PM.”

O’Donnell concluded by stating that Trump simply “rewrote” the lie from the Fox News host. He added that there is no evidence of any “undercover liberal activists” attempting to get on the jury.

ABC News is losing its Chief Medical Correspondent and co-host of GMA3, Dr. Jennifer Ashton.

When her contract expires in June, Ashton will leave the network to launch a new women’s wellness company, Ajenda, where she will serve as the CEO.

“Sometimes an important message needs the right messenger, and I feel like there is no more critical time in this country for women’s health, and for weight management,” Ashton told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re facing an obesity epidemic, and menopause and perimenopause and women’s health is literally in a spotlight like never before. And I want to be the messenger for those messages.

“And so I’m excited about finally having the opportunity to just devote 100 percent of my time and effort into that, and using the skills that I’ve learned from being at the number one network for 13 years, I think are going to be really vital in that.”

Dr. Jennifer Ashton added that she received the support of ABC News President Kim Godwin and Networks Division leader Debra OConnell.

“They both said to me, ‘Is there anything we can do to change your mind?’ And when I said there really isn’t, because I really feel strongly about doing this, they basically said you know, ‘we’re going to be behind you.’ And I think that’s really unusual in this business in this day,” she said.
