THANK you, Joy Reid!

I am certain that the media's recent discovery of their backbones is largely due to Joy Reid's fierce fact-checking and always polite but firm "I don't have time for your bullshit" challenges to lying liars.

It's really nice to see them trying to do better the last couple of days. Let's hope it lasts.

1. Joy is the only member of the media to call out the RW lies and bullshit all year. Love her!

4. She has definitely been ahead of the curve on that...

Funny how real journalism sounds these days.

5. I second that! I never miss AM Joy, and it's a treat when she does fill-in for a weeknight host.

6. Yup! My far better half and I have really really enjoyed Joy, also Chris, Rachel, and Lawrence!

 

Joy is very delightful, and sure is worth watching on the Weekend. Great for her and for the MSNBC evening lineup (maybe other than the TPP, net neutrality -- but baby steps on these -- and some not so baby!

Very good Joy et al!

7. YES!

My same thoughts, none of the so called journalist had the guts to call those surrogates. Joy showed them how to do it and some of them took a lesson from her.

She is a shinning light in normally dismal cable reporting.

8. I agree Joy's awesome. :)

Thank you to Joy for really knowing her stuff and having the courage to call Republicans out on their lies.

9. I wish they would move Chris Matthews to some other time

 

and give Joy his slot. I'm so tired of his asking a question and then completely talking over the person who's trying to answer. I'm sure he's still patting himself on the back for getting birtherism back out in the open. I hope it turns out badly for Trump but I know a lot of people tuned in today and instead of seeing a travesty they saw the "great businessman/developer" showing off his newest creation while surrounded by war heroes kissing his ring. To use one of his words, disgusting!

10. Joy deserves her own weekday show.

MSNBC should stop scheduling her show on the weekends. Joy belongs on primetime.

14. I'm retired and used to hate the weekends

We stayed in on weekends because everyone else was out and we didn't want to add to the crowds. TV was crap. Now I look forward to seeing Joy on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It's like a breath of fresh air to watch her. She is awesome!
