    I really wished Melissa had not used words like: token or mammy in that email to her staff. I understand she was probably heated, but why bring race into this when this is all about business. MSNBC is trying to compete with CNN and Fox and cover all things dealing with this election.

    I absolutely enjoy MHP because the show is very thought provoking and spoke about issues on poverty, gender politics, race, education,healthcare, and entertainment. Melissa’s round table can be filled with veteran journalists and passionate young bloggers that bring a different perspective on issues. I hope this isn’t the end of MHP, but if her time is up with MSNBC, I would love to see TVOne or Centric pick her up. I don’t think this will happen, but one could dream.
