MSNBC host Joy Reid blames ‘white and male media’ for Kamala Harris’ low approval rating

MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed Vice President Kamala Harris’ poor popularity rating is due to her representation in a “white and male media” rather than her time in office. Reid stated in a recent interview that the white, male media will not allow Harris, who has a 41% approval rating, to put her personality on display.

Reid told The Root that “She’s just a regular sister in the same way people would always say that Michelle Obama is like if your cousin became first lady. Kamala Harris is like if your cousin became VP of the United States. I think she doesn’t get to show that personality often enough, and so people haven’t had a chance to get to know her.” She added that “Most of the media is still white and male. And their take on Kamala Harris becomes the take. It becomes conventional wisdom.”

Additionally, Reid claimed that “The job she’s had is dead serious and this time is so serious. Think about her portfolio: voting rights, immigration and the border, and police reform. The things on her plate are the toughest things that the Biden administration has to deal with outside of inflation and the war in Ukraine. I think sometimes the cynicism of our politics makes us forget how important she is and what she represents for us.”

Reid believes Harris has been cloaked by a negative narrative pushed by traditional media and is frequently seen as an incompetent leader who fumbles when giving statements. However, Reid claims that this is an inaccurate and unjust assessment of her ability.
