How some people on what's left of Liberal Teevee continue to screw thing up for the rest of us.
Here's a fun fact! The amount which MSNBC's Touré "Touré!" Neblett owed in taxes last year is greater than my total gross income for the last two years.
Here's another fun fact! The first Fun Fact wouldn't bother me in the slightest, were it not for the additional fact that Touré decided he did not need to pay his taxes last year.
And neither did MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, Al Sharpton and Joy-Ann Reid (from [shudder] Politico, citing The National Review [double shudder]):
4 MSNBC hosts plagued by tax debtIt turns out Al Sharpton and Melissa Harris-Perry aren't the only MSNBC hosts who have outstanding tax debts.The National Review reports that Touré Neblett, the co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, owes more than $59,000 in taxes, according to public records. New York issued a state tax warrant to Neblett and his wife for $46,862.68 in September 2012 and an additional warrant for $12,849.87 six months later.The National Review also notes that New York last month filed a $4,948.15 tax warrant against former daytime host Joy-Ann Reid and her husband. Reid recently hosted an afternoon program on MSNBC and now serves as managing editor of theGrio.com....
First, let me say that Al Sharpton should have been sacked years ago.
Make me president of MSNBC on a Monday, and by Tuesday at the latest he and Joe Scarborough would be "special correspondents" doing one-minute movie reviews at 2 AM on weekend slot between episodes of "Prison".
That said, I generally like the rest of this bunch and have a great deal of respect for Joy-Ann and MHP. I really expected better of them, if for no other reason than the existence of actual Liberals on national teevee talking about things that actually matter -- like, say, tax policy and the plight of the dying middle class -- is already such a rare and precarious thing, handing the bad guys a hammer this big is inexcusable.
