MSNBC ‘Parting Ways’ With Host Melissa Harris-Perry

February 28, 2016 12:27 pm

MSNBC told The New York Times Sunday that it was “parting ways” with Melissa Harris-Perry after the MSNBC host told staff in an email that she felt as if she lost editorial control and would not appear this weekend on her show.

Harris-Perry told the Times that “terms of severance, not reconciliation” were still being negotiated. She posted this on Twitter early Sunday:

Harris-Perry gave a scathing review of the network in her email to colleagues.

“Our show was taken—without comment or discussion or notice—in the midst of an election season,” Harris-Perry wrote in the email.

The network initially called the email “surprising, confusing and disappointing.”
