According to Dylan Byers of POLITICO, Karen Finney, former DNC spokesperson and MSNBC commentator, will join Media Matters For America as a senior fellow and consultant. The liberal watchdog group told POLITICO that Finney, “will write regular commentary pieces for Media Matters in addition to continuing her independent consultancy and other projects.”
Finney, who left MSNBC earlier this month, said, “Media Matters does indispensable work exposing lies, misinformation, and vitriol from conservative media. I’m thrilled to be working with them.”
Finney previously worked in the Clinton White House as well as Hillary Clinton’s first New York Senate race. She was also the first African-American spokeswoman for the DNC and has been an MSNBC commentator and guest host since 2009.
