MSNBC anchor Joy Reid used her appearance Saturday on the network to try to change a conversation swirling around her.

Reid has been under a microscope in recent days owing to a new set of allegations that she penned a cache of old blog posts carrying homophobic remarks. The anchor has grappled with the problem since late last year and apologized previously, but found herself this week fending off a new discovery items that she claimed were not hers, but the result of the work of hackers. Reid has been working with a cybersecurity expert to bolster her assertions.

"I genuinely believe I did not write those hateful things," she said during the opening segment of "A.M. Joy," her MSNBC program, on Saturday, even as she admitted her team has not been able to find conclusive evidence that her posts had been manipulated. "The reality is, they have not been able to prove it," she said of consultants working with her. "I cannot take any of that back. I can only say that the person I am now is not the person I was then. I like to think that I've gotten better over time, that I'm still growing," she said during the program.
