MSNBC Loves Taxes… When You Pay Them

April 22, 2015

As America’s leading progressive “news” network, MSNBC has championed expensive big government programs like Obamacare. They’ve also repeatedly attacked Republicans who want to lower taxes.

But like all progressives, what they want doesn’t apply to them…

MSNBC fails to address tax problems of hosts

National Review reported today that MSNBC’s Touré, who co-hosts the network’s afternoon program “The Cycle,” owes nearly $60,000 in taxes to New York State, according to a pair of tax warrants that the magazine found. And as the story fully noted, there’s a trend afoot here:

*Al Sharpton: The New York Times reported last year that the MSNBC host ran a “delinquent” nonprofit organization and calculated “$4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.” Sharpton convened a news conference to deny the story’s allegations.

*Melissa Harris-Perry: The Winston-Salem Journal last week reported that this MSNBC host and her husband, James Perry, had been socked with a $70,000 IRS tax lien. Harris-Perry said that more than $21,000 of that amount had been paid.

*Joy-Ann Reid: National Review reported that Reid, a former MSNBC host and managing editor of, and her husband were slapped with a nearly $5,000 tax warrant from New York state.

MSNBC host Touré has been particularly critical of Republicans on taxes…

Now watch these hypocrites lecture people on paying taxes…

    They’re just TV hosts; I don’t think you can hold them to the same standards as politicians. Also, I am sure that a lot of conservative TV hosts must have the same issues.
