Investigation: Why Joy Reid’s Ratings Tanked To Worst Week Ever

Videos by OutKick

Aside from Dr. Fauci’s 7-10 weekly TV hits, Joy Reid’s primetime program, The ReidOut, routinely stands out as the worst that TV has to offer. The worst of the worst. Reid is so dishonest and radical now that even the far, far-Left has tuned her out.

Between June 14-18, The ReidOut averaged a CNN-like 1.2 million viewers, the lowest since Reid’s primetime debut in July 2020. It also tanked to an all-time low among viewers in the key 25-54 demographic.

Race-baiting appeals to Twitter users. See LeBron’s following. Unfortunately, the 8% who spend their days tweeting — many of whom are fans of Joy Reid — don’t turn on the TV.

With Donald Trump gone and Joe Biden in, news hosts have had to change their approach. Bill Maher, Tucker Carlson, and Rachel Maddow have elevated themselves as a result. And while Reid’s post-Trump direction may not be as cringe as Jim Acosta’s (whose is?), it’s still unwatchable.

Since Trump’s departure from the White House, Reid has calculated that everyone and everything in America is racist. Most recently, Reid called everyone associated with the country’s school system racist. Even the schools that preach Critical Race Theory? You bet. According to Reid, CRT doesn’t go far enough because grades K-12 teach “Confederate Race Theory.”

“Currently, most K-12 students already learn a kind of Confederate Race Theory, whereby the Daughters of the Confederacy long ago imposed a version of history wherein slavery was not so bad and had nothing to do with the Civil War, and lynchings and violence never happened,” Reid says.

Were you taught that in school? Do you know anyone who was?

Two months ago, the MSNBC host baselessly tied Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to a sex trafficking ring. Sure, such an accusation could ruin DeSantis’s life, but Reid wasn’t actually saying it’s true, only that it’s possible.

Hard to top that, you say? Not with Reid, it isn’t.

Reid also claimed that red states are keeping black people alive only so that they cook white people’s steaks. Based on what? There’s no use asking since there are never any answers. So, please, don’t ask.

I know what you are thinking: 1.2 million people tuned in last week?

Anyway, catch Joy Reid at 7 p.m. ET tonight. Could be good.

  1. Definitely in my top ten of the most awful humans on the planet. She’s like the MJ of race baiting bigots. Chick blames whitey for everything. It was good hearted white people that free the slaves Joy. Republicans actually. The dems wanted to keep your ancestors in chains Joy. You’re welcome.

  2. These networks can afford to hire morons like a Joy Reid, D. Lemon, Brian Skelter, Jimmy Kimmel,etc. who all have low ratings, because that money lost from their low ratings is made up Big Pharma and other big companies sponsorships.

    As long as those big companies is steadily pumping millions into these networks, expect nothing to change.

    You will see change if these big sponsors start threatening to pull their advertising.
