MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry criticized the New York Times because it actually had the nerve to publish a photograph of a person that it wrote an article about.

Can you imagine such an atrocity? A newspaper actually published a photograph to accompany one of its articles!

Has the New York Times no shame?

Harris-Perry: By Showing Malik in Hijab, NYT Suggesting ‘This Is What Terrorism Looks Like’

December 5, 2015

They would have used a photo of her in an NRA cap, but none was available . . . Man, it’s getting hard to navigate the nuanced shoals of political correctness. Now, even the ineffably sensitive New York Times has run afoul of the rules, as propounded by Melissa Harris-Perry. On her MSNBC show today, Harris-Perry griped that the Gray Lady had run a photo of Islamic terrorist killer Tafsheen Malik wearing a hijab. As per H-P, the Times was sending a message that “this is what terrorism looks like.”

Damn those anti-Muslim bigots of the New York Times! But seriously, what was the poor paper supposed to do? Should the Times have photoshopped the hijab off Malik? Harris-Perry might have complained that the paper was suggesting there was something offensive about the garment. Sometimes you just can’t win with the PC crowd.

Melissa Harris-Perry says children “belong to whole communities,” but sends her own child to a private school

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry recently said the following:

We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. “Your kid is yours, and totally your responsibility.” We haven’t had a very collective notion of “These are our children.” So part of it is that we have to break through our kind of private idea that “Kids belong to their parents” or “Kids belong to their families,” and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.

If she really believes what she said, then why does she send her own daughter to a private school?
