Far left anchor Tiffany Cross speaks out on MSNBC about ‘poor judgement’ on and off the air

MSNBC has severed ties with controversial, far-left weekend host Tiffany Cross after NBC Universal executives grew tired of her “poor judgement”.

Cross, who hosted the weekend program Cross Connection, will be replaced with rotating guest presenters until a replacement is named, a source close to the situation told Fox News Digital.

MSNBC decided not to renew Cross’ contract after two years and immediately parted ways with her. The move is billed internally as a program decision, and their staff stays with the network and produces whatever lands the “Cross Connection” timeslot.

“Repeated bad behavior on and off the show. Bad judgment,” a second source close to the situation told Fox News Digital when asked about MSNBC’s decision not to keep Cross.

The Cross team was informed on Friday. The move only affects the hostess of the same name and not her employees.

MSNBC declined comment when reached by Fox News Digital.

Cross was previously a backup host for Joy Reid’s weekend show AM Joy and got her own Saturday program in 2020. There she was known for her scathing remarks about conservatives, noting that a “civil war” was already raging in the US, urging liberals to “take up arms” in the fight for democracy and calling on the Supreme Court Justice to Clarence Thomas, Justice for Pubic Hair on My Coke Can.

She also warned against “white replacements” on the show and berated Republican congressmen as “white supremacists.” Cross recently drew ridicule when she commented on Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion incident by mistakenly calling the Miami Dolphins quarterback Black and his head coach White. Tagovailoa is Samoan and his trainer is multiracial. Cross had suggested that Tagovailoa, who suffered a concussion in a September game, had been threatened by his coach for racism.

Cross’s divisive rhetoric is believed to have angered NBCUniversal honchos.

Shortly after news of her exit broke, Cross began retweeting messages of support from her fans. Many of the messages she shared were critical of MSNBC.

In August, Cross countered a liberal media theme that the economy is doing better by declaring that “we’re not doing better,” namely minority communities.

“Some of the challenges I have in the mainstream media and you hear things like, ‘Oh, the economy is doing better.’ And for many of us, the economy is not the stock market. We’re not doing any better,” she said.

Cross then claimed that the minority community is not included in these talks about the economy. “And when you have these conversations, sometimes it feels like there’s such a disconnect between us and the community, we feel left out of the conversation,” she said.

Cross urged his fellow progressives in January to “take up arms and get involved in the ‘war’ for the country’s survival.”

“It is indeed a war. And I have to say, they’ve won some battles … but we have to keep an eye on the war in the country,” she said.

Cross seemed to be speaking metaphorically, but the language was still striking. She also slammed Republicans celebrating the acquittal of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, who a jury found had acted in self-defense.

“I find these people disgusting,” she said last year.

Cross also referred to Judge Thomas as “Tom,” an apparent “Uncle Tom” reference used to disparage blacks who are seen as overly deferential to whites.

At other times, Cross has allowed guests to spew controversial rhetoric on her program.

In July, guest panelists told Cross that the Democratic Party’s “greatest crime” was “collaborating” with the Republican Party in turning the American dream into the “American nightmare.” Another declared Florida the “MAGA Republican Capital of the Confederacy.”

Cross wrote the book Say It Louder: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy, which was published in July 2020.
