As Her ‘Hack’ Claim Collapses, Joy Reid’s Column Is Suspended At Daily Beast
Breitbart ^ | 4-27-2018 | John Nolte

Posted on 04/27/2018 10:10:44 AM PDT by blam

The far-left Daily Beast says it has “hit pause” on Joy Reid’s columns until its own reporters have had a chance to investigate her claim that homophobic writings attributed to her were actually written by a hacker. In other fallout news, the embattled MSNBC anchor canceled a public appearance, a high-profile panel discussion she was set to appear on in New York.

On top of that, a gay rights group abruptly canceled an award Reid was scheduled to receive next month.

“We’re going to hit pause on Reid’s columns,” wrote Daily Beast executive editor Noah Shachtman in an internal email. “As you’re well aware, support for LGBTQ rights and respect for human dignity are core to Daily Beast. So we’re taking seriously the new allegations that one of our columnists, Joy Reid, previously wrote homophobic blog posts during her stint as a radio host.”

Shachtman added, “We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we wish we hadn’t done. We deserve the room to grow beyond our past. But these allegations are serious enough that they deserve a full examination.”

Hopefully, Schachtman is not talking about 12-year-old writings being a disqualifier. It would be outrageous to fire or suspend someone over something they wrote at a completely different site more than a decade ago. The only thing that should matter to the Daily Beast is if Reid follows its own editorial policies and guidelines.

Reid’s problem, however, is not what was published at her site in 2006. Reid’s problem is if she is lying in 2018, and by all accounts her story of being hacked is springing leaks right and left.

"But even if she is caught lying, that might not be enough for her to lose her status in an establishment media that still parades Dan Rather and Brian Williams around as Pillars Of Virtuous Journalism. "

Apparently one of the indicators is a chronic misspelling of a common word - something almost nobody else would do (especially in the age of spell-check & auto-correct), yet occurs often in her writings. That raises the point that writing style is an identifiable indication of authorship, and has been quantified almost to the point of objective proof. If there’s no distinctive variation from her style, we can be quite sure she wrote it.

It would be a blessing if we were rid of Joy Reid.

Like Brian Williams, she’ll be brought back at a later time.

Pay bcareful attention here: Being anti-faggot overrides being black and female. This is a new calculation by the left.

Idiot.

Hacks like that don’t happen.

Happended to me once on FR but, that was my fault for leaving my computer on and not logging out of FR.

Her’s was persistent....

And, if those were her views she should defend them and explain why she may have evolved or stand fast as that being her views.

Excellent - NBC has already asked the FBI to check her "hacked" claim.
Just doubling-down on stupid.

The gays are not tolerant of anything but total support. She will pay some sort of social penalty. They might let her scrape and grovel her way back because she has been a dedicated communist to this point and she has a racial card.

She PO’d people with her hateful comments about Christianity, but they can’t sack her for that because of liberal hate. So they found an excuse to get rid of her - homophobia. It is the excuse they can live with.

So it’s outrageous to judge Joy for something she wrote 12 years ago but accusations from a porn star are to be taken at face value.
