The thorough dismantling of the main stream media has been on display for all to see. Weather its been done internally, such the comical failure that was the CNN+ streaming service.
Or if it was done from the outside, such as the abysmal performances in the ratings. The CNN+ streaming service, just to remind you dear reader, cost the network well over three hundred million dollars. As for the ratings, they’re more comical than the actual late night shows. One would have to be referred to Greg Gutfeld for elaboration.
This was thought to be the “last straw” that got Tiffany Cross fired from MSNBC- she calls Florida, “the dick of the country”. Hours later she was let go. pic.twitter.com/JqEXTw7LxU— Mike Sington (@MikeSington) November 4, 2022
It is now being reported that The National Review that:
MSNBC has cut ties with weekend host Tiffany Cross, one day after she called Florida the “d*** of the country,” according to reports.
The network has decided not to renew Cross’s contract after two years and fired her, effective immediately, per Variety. The production staff on her show, The Cross Connection, will remain at the network in different roles.
The National Review went on to report that:
Sources told Variety Cross’s relationship with the network was “becoming frayed” and that executives were worried about her willingness to address statements made by cable-news hosts on other networks and her commentary that did not meet the standards of MSNBC or NBC News.
The last straw may have been comments Cross made as a guest on Charlamagne Tha God’s Hell of a Week show on Thursday, sources told the New York Post.
Cross and other panelists were asked which swing state Democrats could afford to lose in the midterm elections.
Cross named Florida, saying that it “literally looks like the d*** of the country.”
“Ron DeStupid, Ron DeSantis, whatever you wanna call Florida man, he is so problematic,” she said. “He traffics in stupidity and ignorance, and I just think they are a problem for the rest of the country. Let’s get them out.”
It was The Wrap that went on to report that:
Tiffany Cross said she was “disheartened” by the sudden cancellation of her MSNBC show “The Cross Connection” on Friday morning and questioned that the decision happened four days before the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
“I am disheartened to learn of MSNBC’s decision to cancel The Cross Connection, at such a crucial time—four days before the midterm elections,” Cross said in a message posted to Twitter. “From the beginning, we were intentional about centering communities of color, elevating issues and voices often ignored by the mainstream media, and disrupting the echo chambers. As a result, viewers consistently made The Cross Connection MSNBC’s highest rated weekend show.”
The Wrap went on report that:
Cross and her staff were notified of the show’s cancellation Friday morning, according to an individual with knowledge. Her last show was last Saturday.
“Fresh off the heels of a racial reckoning,’ as so many have called it, we see that with progress there is always backlash,” Cross wrote. “Now is not the time to retreat to politics or Journalism as usual. It is my hope that the last two years at MSNBC have been disruptive and transformative, changing how politics are discussed and making policy more digestible. It was the opportunity of a lifetime to create a show the culture would be proud to keep trending every weekend.”
The demise of the media as it fall to leftist snobbery has been well chronicled. In fact, we reported back in September that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk called out the mainstream media for not reporting on the massive border crisis in Texas. Elon Musk is not a stranger to speaking his mind on hot topics. He recently commented on a string of tweets by Fox News Correspondent Bill Melugin.
Melugin shared a tweet of hundreds of migrants illegally entering Eagle Pass, Texas. He said that Eagle Pass has seen approximately 400,000 illegal immigrant crossings since October 2021. He noted that that number is larger than the population of New Orleans. He also noted that the groups are made up of mostly single adults, not families. “400k from one border crossing in less than a year?” Musk wrote in a tweet replying to Melugin’s thread. “That’s correct,” Melugin said in response, “400,000 in just the Del Rio sector since fiscal year 2022 began on October 1st, and that does not include getaways.”
