In the wake of the tragic Parkland, Florida shooting, there have been some disgusting and crazy conspiracy theories attacking some of the survivors as “actors” who didn’t really suffer through an ordeal. These comments are obviously offensive and should be condemned. But one person who doesn’t have the credibility to do that is former MSNBC analyst Toure. Why? Because he’s promoted 9/11 truther…

February 6th, 2017 10:15 AM
Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC displayed how the Left can interpret racism or racial insensitivity into anything as host Joy Reid not only mocked President Donald Trump's words of praise for iconic anti-slavery activist Frederick Douglass, but even treated it as somehow inappropriate for Vice President Mike Pence to send out a tweet on February 1 commemorating President Abraham Lincoln signing onto…

Touré: Prince Was a 'Conservative,' a 'Republican'
April 22nd, 2016 7:27 PM
Will this stem the MSM's flood of deserved praise for Prince? It turns out that Touré--better known in these parts as a former spoke in MSNBC's since-cancelled Cycle--is also a Prince biographer, his book published in 2013.

MSNBC Canceling The Cycle? Where Will 9/11 Truthers and Angry Libs Go?

According to multiple sources, MSNBC will soon announce the cancellation of The Cycle, its 3pm EDT show.

April 24th, 2015 10:35 AM
The Washington Free Beacon has made another terrific clip compilation – this time, on the MSNBC hosts who owe large chunks of tax money thumping a tub against tax avoidance and in favor of civic-minded taxpaying. One precious clip is Melissa Harris-Perry proclaiming “I don’t get to opt out of paying taxes once we’ve kind of made a collective decision.” David Rutz offered a summary:
