Walk on By! MSNBC has parted ways with host Melissa Harris-Perry after she complained about pre-emptions of her weekend program and implied that there was a racial aspect to the cable-news network’s treatment, insiders at MSNBC said. Harris-Perry refused to appear on her program Saturday morning, telling her co-workers in an email that she felt “worthless” to the NBC-owned network. “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” wrote Harris-Perry, who is African American. “I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back.”
