Former Democratic presidential nominee Andrew Yang was blacklisted from one of MSNBC’s top shows, a former producer said recently.
“The list of candidates was dictated, but the reasons for allowing them or not were not explained,” she said on Twitter.
The list was unique to O'Donnell’s show and did not come from upper management, she added.
An MSNBC spokesperson didn’t respond to a request for comment.
During an appearance on CNN, Yang said that during a primary debate hosted by MSNBC, he got called on less than any other candidate.
MSNBC has also “omitted me from over a dozen fundraising and polling graphics,“ Yang added. ”I’m not the kind of guy who takes offense easily but at this point you have to call it like you see it.”
Yang started a boycott of MSNBC, which he ended late last year because he decided he wanted “to speak to as many Americans as possible.”
