Twitter Celebrated MSNBC’s Decision to Cancel Joy Reid — but It Was Fake News

For a brief moment, Anti-Reid Twitter rejoiced

MSNBC haters celebrated news yesterday that the network would be canceling “AMJoy.” The show and its host Joy Reid has racked up no shortage of detractors over the years.

The only problem — it wasn’t true.

The fake news spread as a result of this tweet from “Wired Sources,” which cited TVNewser.

The Twitter account, which was launched in August 2017 and promotes itself as “your trusted source for news and politics,” turned out to be not all that trustworthy.

Wired Sources issued a correction a short time later revealing that they had mistaken a TVNewser report about Reid’s former MSNBC show “The Reid Report” which was indeed canceled in 2015.

A spokesperson for MSNBC did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap about the matter.

Fake news? Yes. But for a brief moment, Anti-Reid Twitter rejoiced.

The charge was led by Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, who are both known for their accusations of sexual assault against President Bill Clinton.
