(GEORGE CURRY MEDIA)—Twitter “blew up” Friday night with the hashtag #Nerdland after word got around that Melissa Harris-Perry was being “dogged out” by MSNBC, the network that tries to position itself as the antidote to Fox News.

In an email to her staff at the MHP show that afternoon, the talented scholar described the abusive snubbing she received and how her abilities and value were being disrespected by a gang of “good ol’ boys” in the top echelons of the network.

Harris-Perry, who is eminently qualified to comment on the American political scene, has been sidelined by MSNBC during the coverage of the presidential primaries to make room for less qualified pundits and some who are arguably less truthful in their presentation of the facts.  Her show aired on weekend mornings from 10 to 12, but for the past few weeks, it has been pre-empted by other hosts covering the primaries.
