The woke insanity, uncontrollable hatred, and blatant racism of the far-left continue to take their toll on cable news outlets that offer nothing else, and MSNBC host Joy Reid is the latest casualty.
The same week that Warner Bros. Discovery announced they are speeding up the shut-down of CNN’s new streaming service CNN+ comes news that her program’s ratings, which were nothing at all to write home about, to begin with, are worse this week than they’ve been since her program was launched.
Powerhouse cable news outlet Fox News has the details:
MSNBC host Joy Reid’s “ReidOut” finished April with its smallest monthly audience in the far-left program’s nearly two-year history.
“ReidOut” averaged 1.1 million viewers during the news-heavy month, a 31% decline from April of last year. She also shed 11% of viewers who tuned in last month and a staggering 51% compared to the show’s debut month of July 2020.
“ReidOut” has also lost 57% of her total audience among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54 since the program launched in July 2020, finishing April with a dismal demo average of only 124,000 viewers. “ReidOut” viewership during April was MSNBC’s least-watched month during the weeknight 7 p.m. hour among the critical demo since July 2015.
Apparently oblivious to the flight of her audience, Reid — a serial racial gaslighter — continued her schtick this week, suggesting that Tesla and SpaceX founder and CEO — and South African native — Elon Musk “missed” the country’s racist apartheid era as she ranted against his takeover of Twitter. She and another racist gaslighting regular, Jason Johnson, riffed on Musk while claiming that conservatives are “outsiders to the culture” who are likely going to miss “smart” liberals (like them?) who vowed to leave the platform
She also declared conservatives on Twitter want to be able “punch people in the face” and then chuckle about it.
Just this week the host caused another stir when she claimed that black children associated with a foundation launched by former NFL standout safety Jack Brewer were subjected to “child abuse” for being pictured with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as the GOP leader signed legislation banning critical race theory curriculum in public schools.
Earlier this month she suggested ending mask mandates was letting “a-holes win,” and she has also posted a video on her TikTok account scolding people who continue to ask her to define what a woman is.
On April 5, she argued that Republicans are now appealing to a pro-rape and pro-child marriage base, tweeting out a thread condemning the Republican Party and asserting they are attempting to reach the “most prurient fears of white Christian parents” as their political strategy.
Reid also claimed Republicans are also “forcing women to be child-birthing slaves of the state” and are “banning” the teaching of slavery.
Last month, Reid claimed that there is a “racial disparity” in the way Western media have portrayed the very real suffering of Ukrainians in that war, saying they are seen as more “human” in comparison to their “browner and blacker counterparts” involved in conflicts elsewhere.
The fact is, this woman is a racist, a hater, and a bigot — she was busted once disparaging gays in an old blog (she claimed initially that she was hacked) — and the results are showing in her reduced viewership numbers.
We doubt that she’s going to learn any lessons about this any time soon, though.
