Did America just forget about MSNBC star Joy Reid’s homophobic blog posts from the early-to-mid 2000s?
Fox News star Tucker Carlson didn’t forget the scandal that Reid apologized for in 2017… and he brought on an expert to ask, “Whatever happened to Joy Reid’s gay-bashing scandal?”

“Joy Reid is an anchor on MSNBC; she was found a few years ago to have this blog attacking gay people. ‘Putting them in danger!’ Then she said she never wrote it,” Carlson said on his Thursday show. “Someone had hacked her blog, and she called law enforcement. Then we never really heard the end of that. Did Vladimir Putin hack Joy Reid’s gay-bashing blog?”
The editor-in-chief of Outspoken, Chadwick Moore, shared his thoughts.
“What do you think happened with Joy Reid’s gay-bashing blog that put millions of American gay people in danger?” Carlson asked sarcastically.
Moore said that the Joy Reid from a few years ago, the woman that wrote the blog piece, would be on board “100 percent” with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ bill in Florida asking teachers to stick to age-appropriate content with kindergarteners.
“She wrote in that blog about ‘gays recruiting children’ — of course, the Florida law isn’t about that,” Moore said.
Instead, the blog was “obsessed with gay people” and claimed there were homosexual conspiracies at all levels of government.

“An investigation happened. She had a hired gun and claimed that yes, it was hacked,” he replied said. “Then her employer, the far-left Daily Beast did their own investigation and said, no, it was not hacked.”
“Then the FBI got involved and we still haven’t heard what came of that,” Moore said. “We do, however, have a name when someone fakes a crime, gets law enforcement involved, and then wastes money and government resources when they know it’s faked.”
“It’s called pulling a ‘Smollett.’ And if there’s one thing that’s going to hurt Joy Reid, it’s being compared to Smollet.
“We’ve got a murder epidemic underway in the country, there’s a war in East Europe,” Carlson said. “Now is not the time to tie up FBI resources with your fake hate crime claims. Why hasn’t Joy Reid been charged for lying about this hacking of her blog?”
“Isn’t that fascinating? It makes you wonder if she went to the officers and admitted, ‘I wrote this blog. I just have to do this for the camera’ and cut some sort of deal. Or maybe she just has liberal media privilege.”
“What would it look like for MSNBC, which carries water for the Democratic Party, if one of their top hosts were arrested for pulling a ‘Smollett.'”

“It appears that it was either Joy Reid that wrote these very homophobic blog posts… or Vladimir Putin,” Moore concluded.
