CNN took a shot at MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry on Wednesday in a segment that tied the host's recent remarks about Mitt Romney's black grandchild to a string of controversies that have plagued the progressive cable news channel.

After noting that both Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir had recently left MSNBC in the wake of highly controversial comments, CNN's Fredricka Whitfield said "some are calling for Melissa Harris-Perry to be fired."
