MSNBC Contributor Suggests ‘Wikileaks & AltRight’ Responsible For Joy Reid’s Anti-Gay Blog Posts

It would appear that U.S. Intelligence expert and MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance is supporting Joy Reid‘s questionable claims that she wasn’t responsible for those homophobic posts on her old blog.

Reid has been taking major heat over her recently-uncovered, highly-controversial posts under her old byline. Reid denied writing those posts and claimed she was hacked, but she hasn’t been able to prove that, and her allegations have come under intense scrutiny.

Nance has tweeted and retweeted statements of support for Reid over the last few days, but on Friday, he seemed to suggest that the scandal really could’ve been concocted by nefarious right-wing forces trying to bring her down.

Reid continues to insist she wasn’t the author for her old posts, but she did offer an apology earlier today for the controversy. Here’s how Nance reacted to her statement.
