Joan Walsh's Contract at MSNBC Is Not Renewed

Joan Walsh's Contract at MSNBC Is Not Renewed”

MSNBC took heat on Twitter Saturday after contributor Joan Walsh revealed the network declined to renew her contract. "A Christmas miracle", Walsh said.

Leftist writer Joan Walsh was sacked by MSNBC 5 months after trashing Ivanka Trump as too pretty to represent real women. "I'm proud of the work I did", she wrote.

Walsh, who was Salon's first news editor and the publication's editor-in-chief for a total of six years, had been regularly appearing on Chris Matthews' Hardball and Chris Hayes' All In, among other MSNBC staples, before the news of MSNBC's decision broke.

"Thanks to everyone who made this happen".

Even more baffling was MSNBC's statement Saturday confirming her departure.

On Saturday morning she held to her promise. Shortly afterward, Walsh's Twitter fans launched the hashtag #KeepJoanWalsh, which MSNBC ignored.

Walsh has also responded to tweets from supporters denouncing the move by MSNBC.

Reid called the network's decision "short sighted" and added 'Given the momentousness of next year's anniversaries: the women's march, the King and RFK assassinations ... we need to be at full strength as media entities, and Joan belongs in the mix.' While Hayes tweeted Walsh is 'indispensable'. "Every year we review our paid contributors list across the ideological spectrum", the network continued. "Unfortunately we couldn't renew Joan, but she and her distinct perspective will still be invited on our shows", an MSNBC spokesperson told TheWrap via email.

The reason for Walsh's ouster was unexplained and a source of great puzzlement as she was very popular with MSNBC viewers and anchors. She is the author of the 2012 book "What's the Matter With White People?" And finally MSNBC host Ari Melber tweeted what seemed like a message of support for Walsh. "It can be risky to comment on what women wear, but the fact that she sat in for her father in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was such a contradiction in terms".

Walsh said there was something deeply disturbing about Ivanka Trump, a fashion designer, wearing a "girly" dress.
