For several years, MSNBC's Joy Reid posted homosexual insults at a politician on her blog. She eventually admitted that it was actually her and she apologized for it.
Now more homosexual insults have come out and Reid is claiming that her site was hacked. Here is her statement of denial for analysis. Question: Was she hacked? Post your thoughts in the comments section with analysis to follow.
In December I learned that an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, to include offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology.
I began working with a cyber-security expert who first identified the unauthorized activity, and we notified federal law enforcement officials of the breach. The manipulated material seems to be part of an effort to taint my character with false information by distorting a blog that ended a decade ago.
Now that the site has been compromised I can state unequivocally that it does not represent the original entries. I hope that whoever corrupted the site recognizes the pain they have caused, not just to me, but to my family and communities that I care deeply about: LGBTQ, immigrants, people of color and other marginalized groups.
