Melissa Harris-Perry Spills Some Tell Tale Tea About MSNBC

Melissa Claps Back!


Melissa Harris-Perry

Melissa Harris-Perry is a woman you don’t mess with. If you know anything about what now is her “defunct” talk show MHP then you know she’s brash, outspoken and not one to back down or off from folks that “come for her”. I would think that MSNBC would know that better than anyone else.

I’m wrong.

An email sent by Harris-Perry to her staff on February 26th confirmed that there was something rotten in Denmark  at MSNBC. In the email, Harris-Perry charged MSNBC with purposely keeping her off the air and out of the 2016 primary election coverage. She also stated in that email she would not host her show the upcoming weekend.

She made good on her promise. No Melissa on Saturday or Sunday morning

Then on Sunday morning, February 28th, a spokesman for MSNBC confirmed MSNBC was parting ways with Harris-Perry.

I knew this wouldn’t be the last we would hear about this riff between Mellisa and MSNBC. I knew some tea was going to be spilled by Melissa because the woman don’t throw shade. She comes straight at you.

On Tuesday, March 1 Melissa took to Twitter and spilled all kind of hot tea about MSNBC.


She offered apologies to former MSNBC hosts for not taking more of a stand against the network’s hatchet when it came swinging for them.

She then turned her attention to MSNBC’s president Phil Griffin and its SVP and senior editor Yvette Miley.

She outs them for leaking the Friday Email to the media.

She then put MSNBC on front street for trying to buy her silence with a buyout and non-disclosure agreement. I could have told MSNBC that wasn’t going to go well. Here’s a lady you paid to talk now you want to pay her to shut up? Not!

She didn’t let up. She proved her show was a portal for diversity.

She ended the Twitter “tea spill” as only Mellisa can do. She took a slogan from from 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump and tossed it at her former bosses.The picture attached to the tweet says – “I’m done”.

Now Harris-Perry won’t exactly land in the unemployment line. She is the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University. There she is the Executive Director of the Pro Humanitate Institute and founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Center.

Don’t make any mistake  in your assessment of Melissa Harris- Perry’s departure from the talk show / cable news genre. She’s a huge loss to a lot of people with issues she took to the spotlight.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
