Phil Griffin, MSNBC president, said in an interview published Wednesday at The Hollywood Reporter that the controversies caused by some of the network’s on-air talent in 2013 haven’t caused any permanent damage.
“Of course I’ve talked to everybody in the building about it — and we move on,” Griffin said. “Some of these mistakes are being played out far more inside the media world. I don’t think it hurt us in any way.”
Current MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and former ones Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir started separate stirs in the second half of 2013 controversial comments, each of which ended with public apologies.
