Former MSNBC host Tiffany Cross lost her network gig in 2022 — but during a recent podcast, she claimed that “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough played a role in her abrupt exit.

During an episode of her newly-launched podcast — “Native Land Pod, cohosted by Angela Rye and Andrew Gillum — Cross referred to Scarborough as MSNBC’s “favorite white boy” and claimed that she was pushed out for not wanting to spend all her time covering former President Donald Trump.

“There’s an unspoken rule that you’re not supposed to disagree with Joe, and I didn’t get that memo,” Cross said of the longtime morning show host.

“It was a battle to cover things that I wanted to talk about. The network’s philosophy was Trump, Trump, Trump. They wanted me to be part of the echo chamber,” she continued. “I wanted to cover things like inhumane treatment in prisons, that’s something that disproportionately impacts my community. Mental health among Black men, the erasure of Afro-Latinos in the Latino community, land battles of the indigenous, Native Americans trying to get their family artifacts back from museums right here in America. Black farmers, reaching Latino voters, things like that.”

Cross went on to say that although she believed Scarborough had worked behind her back to submarine her at MSNBC, it was a Tucker Carlson segment about her – accusing her of stoking racial hatred — that ultimately led to her firing.

“The network did not issue a statement the way they had for some of my white colleagues who had also been targeted by MAGA extremists. Instead, executives spoke to me and instructed me that I could not respond to Tucker Carlson at all, and then they began to scrutinize my show and every little thing I wrote,” she claimed.

“The network began attacking me. They planted hit pieces in the press. The president of the network began a bizarre, unhinged tour where she was on damage control; I don’t know what she was trying to do,” Cross claimed.
