Joy Reid did not discuss or address any of the controversy over her newly discovered blog posts during her show “AM Joy” Saturday.
Reid’s show runs on Saturday and Sunday mornings. She hosted an entire two hour block Saturday morning and didn’t mention the news about her blogs once.
The Daily Caller, as well as a number of other outlets, broke news about Reid’s old blog this week. Among other things, she promoted a 9/11 conspiracy documentary, ranted against Wolf Blitzer for his reporting on Israel, and made a number of vicious attacks on Ann Coulter.
The old blog posts also appeared to disappear from the internet archive “Wayback Machine.” (RELATED: Old Joy Reid Blog Posts Disappear From Internet Archive)
Reid apologized in a statement sent to reporters Friday.
MSNBC just sent this statement from Joy Reid. It seems to take responsibility – but does not do so explicitly – for the Loose Change and McCain posts, but does not address the FBI investigation pic.twitter.com/d7Oa5yKZmJ

MSNBC commented on her blog Friday, saying, “Some of the things written by Joy on her old blog are obviously hateful and hurtful. They are not reflective of the colleague and friend we have known at MSNBC for the past seven years. Joy has apologized publicly and privately and said she has grown and evolved in the many years since, and we know this to be true.”
