You won’t find us giving props to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes very often, but dammit if he doesn’t deserve major props for this:
Please watch this excellent closing statement by @chrislhayes
To stand up this way against his bosses at NBC News is remarkable
I should note what makes this even more remarkable is Andy Lack (NBC News Chairman) isn't a big fan of Chris/his show

That can’t have been easy for Hayes. But then, that’s his point, isn’t it? Kudos to him.
Bravo @chrislhayes. We see you and we thank you.

Thank you, Chris. You're truly speaking Truth to power.

This is impressive – @chrislhayes is publicly calling out those who can make his life miserable.
Keep this in mind as the NBA continues to work on behalf of the Chinese govt, Republicans run interference for Trump, and everyone seems afraid to stand up for what is right. https://t.co/ve8NYEm2Gf

This took real guts — major respect for this, despite our many profound disagreements. Wow. https://t.co/oSprbhl8My

That was excellent and took some guts because he is probably going to hear about that from his bosses. But he is right.

I never, ever would have expected that. Wow…

Even Hayes’ swipe at Trump and the GOP had a purpose — to illustrate that, despite what many on the Left and in the media contend, bad actors aren’t just on the Right.
Chris's message here, about the path of least resistance, is important. Villainy is only a small part of what causes evil in this world. The rest is cowardice. Don't be part of the cowardice.
