Blogger Ace, from Ace of Spade Headquarters, fisked Ms. Harris-Perry's letter of complaint with typical aplomb.  An excerpt:
...there is a level of professional decency, respect, and communication that has been denied this show for years.
Because it's not very good, it's silly, and you wear tampons as earrings.
And now you're telling me you cry all the time like a crazyperson
And the utter insulting absurdity of the past few weeks exceeds anything I can countenance.
From your own self-description, you can't countenance a lot of things. What, with all the crying and stuff of countless tears rolling down your cheeks into puddles of sad.

I have stayed in the same hotels where MSNBC has been broadcasting in Iowa, in New Hampshire, and in South Carolina, yet I have been shut out from coverage.
You know who else got to stay at the same hotels as other on-air television personalities, but then who were denied on-air hits?
Slaves did, that's who.
I have a PhD in political science and have taught American voting and elections at some of the nation�s top universities for nearly two decades, yet I have been deemed less worthy to weigh in than relative novices and certified liars.
So many credentials!
Did you also get a Ph.D. in Crying Too Many Tears to Count? Because if not, it sounds like you're just a few credits short!
Hey, let's hear some more bragging about yourself.

I have hosted a weekly program on this network for four years and contributed to election coverage on this network for nearly eight years...
I'm noticing no words like "I have consistently won my time slot" or "I have succeeded in increasing ratings from our lead-in."
... but no one on the third floor has even returned an email, called me, or initiated or responded to any communication of any kind from me for nearly a month.
Maybe they were worried you would cry, and there would be too many tears to count.
It is profoundly hurtful to realize that I work for people who find my considerable expertise and editorial judgment valueless to the coverage they are creating.
That's a direct quote from a slave's journal.
