Tiffany Cross, a former MSNBC host, alleged on her podcast that Joe Scarborough, host of “Morning Joe,” played a role in her departure from the network.

She mentioned feeling pressured to cover topics related to Trump and claimed that she faced resistance when trying to focus on issues like inhumane treatment in prisons, mental health among Black men, and the erasure of Afro-Latinos.

Cross also accused the network of not supporting her when she was targeted by Tucker Carlson, and she criticized the network’s president for their handling of the situation.

“There’s an unspoken rule that you’re not supposed to disagree with Joe, and I didn’t get that memo,” Cross said.

“It was a battle to cover things that I wanted to talk about. The network’s philosophy was Trump, Trump, Trump. They wanted me to be part of the echo chamber,” she added.

“I wanted to cover things like inhumane treatment in prisons, that’s something that disproportionately impacts my community. Mental health among Black men, the erasure of Afro-Latinos in the Latino community, land battles of the indigenous, Native Americans trying to get their family artifacts back from museums right here in America. Black farmers, reaching Latino voters, things like that,” Cross said.

“The network did not issue a statement the way they had for some of my white colleagues who had also been targeted by MAGA extremists. Instead, executives spoke to me and instructed me that I could not respond to Tucker Carlson at all, and then they began to scrutinize my show and every little thing I wrote.”

“The network began attacking me. They planted hit pieces in the press. The president of the network began a bizarre, unhinged tour where she was on damage control; I don’t know what she was trying to do,” Cross said.
