The ReidOut is a weeknight television show airing on the cable network MSNBC at 7 p.m. ET. The program, which premiered in July 2020, addresses provocative political issues both inside and outside of the beltway by means of one-on-one conversations with politicians and newsmakers. Broadcasting live from Washington, the primetime lede news talk show is noted for its tenacious interviewing style and the host's passion for the exploration of the intersection of race, justice, and culture in America; all the while delving into the day's unfolding political headlines, and breaking down complex issues in a way that makes them digestible and accessible.

The ReidOut is hosted by Joy-Ann Lomena-Reid, a best-selling author and public speaker, who first joined MSNBC in 2011 as a contributor. Joy Reid previously hosted an afternoon show called The Reid Report and AM Joy, which aired on weekends. With The ReidOut, Reid's third show for MSNBC, she became the first black woman to host a national primetime news show since PBS NewsHour’s Gwen Ifill died in 2016, and the first black woman to anchor a primetime network show in the history of cable television. Prior to joining MSNBC, Joy Reid worked in the local news scene of Florida and also served as press secretary for the 2008 Barack Obama campaign.

    I don’t understand how MSNBC can support a host who specializes in disinformation and hate. Put her on the View, Joy and Whoopi can worship her, and join in on an hour of hate and disinformation.

      Say you don’t understand. That’s because you don’t want to understand. You don’t like what’s being said., so suddenly YOU don’t understand. The misinformation you get from Fox News, even though you know it’s a lie, you understand. Keep watching Fox, cause its what you want to hear, not what’s true. You’re a typical racist Trump supporter.

    Absolutely frightening this woman has a show. EVERYTHING is Racist. She's not likeable or trustworthy. Extremely hateful and condescending. I cringe whenever she starts speaking about the "Privilege" of white people to the white panel (co-hosts). They ignorantly nod in agreement as she shanks them on live TV.

      What's more frightening is that she gets over 1 million viewers listening to the garbage coming out of her sewer.

    The fact that MSNBC allows a show like Reids’s to continue spitting out lies and vitriol says a lot about the network and those in control.
    Our media has sunk to the lowest levels of hate it’s disgusting.

      Robert you are.100% right she and msnbc are reason why there were riots.in Kenosha by lying about the man that was killed last.August was.unarmed and since there were no national guard Rittenhouse went to the city to protect it and was defending.himself killing two criminals. Now he will likely spend resr.of.his life in prison because of lies by msnbc calling him a murderer and white supremcist

    While scanning channels for election information I happened to see a panel that had Joy Reid. Frankly I found her comments shocking. She has a ugly heart. I will avoid her at all costs.

      There has always been hate from all races because of ignorant people like her. She should not have a mouthpiece in a society that is trying to stop this hate. My one black friend ask me what could we do. I told him he would not be able to trust some of my white friends or me his friends, because we really don’t know who the raciest are. She fuels this just like stupid white raciest. Stop it or the raciest will start a Civil War, Is that what you want Ms. Reed?

    I am politically quite left and a longtime viewer of MSNBC but can no longer tolerate watching Joy Reid's shows. I started out a fan but the guests are often second-rate, not that credible, and I unfortunately now feel that she's taken a turn to make the show primarily about racism. Although my views are left wing, I want to hear more balanced perspective and in-depth reporting from leading journalists and newsmakers, not trivial gossip and accusations.

      Ann you’re a idiot. 1st you’re lying about watching MSNBC, you’re not a patron of the Reid Out or MSNBC never have been, for that matter. You’re a Trump loving Fox News Viewer. Reason: you love the misinformation they give you and their audience. Racism is what all the cable TV shows is about. You just love the ones (FOX NEWS) that support YOUR racism.

    Joy Reid is just about the most racist journalist I have seen on TV. Is she a journalist? I watched her show twice and finally had to turn it off. She is a despicable, hateful woman who also needs a lesson in personal grooming. As a whole MSNBC is just awful and I won't tune in to that network again. They are absolutely part of the fake news.

    She is a hateful bitter racist and everything she reports on she turns it into a racist "white Privilege" story.She is actually turning the country back to voting for Trump and she doesnt even realize it because the American people see right through her.Look at the Virginia race that just got done as an example and just wait for the 2022 vote and the 2024 Presidential vote and when thats done and Trump is back in office she will have realized that her non-stop racism and hate speech doesnt work and she will be left with her own miserable racist self.These type of people that spew hate and racism always get theirs in the end and hers is coming...

    Joy is hard to listen to. I’m m a white guy so I’m a white supremacist. I am a moderate Republican so I’m a Jan 6th insurrectionist.
    She is a hater, how is it possible that a person so bigoted can have a National TV show??
    If she was white and espoused similar beliefs against blacks would it be acceptable…..OF COURSE NOT.
    Come on MSNBC, smarten up.
