Scarborough To Conservative Bloggers: Boycott Morning Joe, Please
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/01/2012 9:35:28 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Calling them "Cheetos-eaters living in their mothers' basements," Joe Scarborough, angered by criticism by conservative bloggers of a segment on last week's Morning Joe, has told them to boycott the show.

Last week, Morning Joe ran a clip of the crowd chanting at a Romney campaign event. Morning Joe superimposed a screen graphic indicating that the crowd had been chanting "Ryan!" Romney was then seen instructing the crowd to instead chant "Romney-Ryan!" Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski proceeded to rip Romney for what was depicted as an egocentric display. In fact, there is considerable controversy as to what the crowd was chanting, with various people reporting from the scene that the crowd had in fact been chanting "Romney," so that Romney's action was gentlemanly, not egocentric. Listen and judge for yourself. On today's show, Scarborough ran a clip of the campaign event, but without the Morning Joe screen graphic that was at the heart of the controversy.

Scarborough says conservatives should boycott his show: I’m sure many FReepers will be only too happy to oblige. Ping to Today show list.

It is the height of hypocrisy for “Joe” to claim that a predominance of those living in their mothers’ basements are Republicans. Simply not believable. It would not surprise me if his mom doesn’t bring him S’Mores each night to the basement after his show that day.

I’ve never watched anything on MSNBC. Does that count?

Joe went off the rails a long time ago and is preoccupied with finding agreement with his lib-thinking guests.

This entire nework is made up of nothing but phonies. The weekend broadcasts make for some hilarious entertainment. But you will need a barf bucket in order to stomach it.

Scarborough says conservatives should boycott his show

***************

No, Joe....

I think I will enjoy watching you every day....
Shining the light on your incredible bias & liberal lunacy..

And exposing your hypocrisy and flamboyant BS to the wider audience of critical thinkers...

All you are missing is the red-bulb nose, rainbow fright-wig and clown shoes...

I hope the conservative blogosphere rides your sorry @$$ like a rented mule....
Every day until you decide to shut your pie-hole.

The Morning Schmoe seems to be under the thumb of the liberal Mistress Mika.
But he still likes to brag that he is a conservative!

The people in his former Florida district need to thank their lucky stars he’s on an obscure TV network and not [mis]representing them.

Who’s Morning Joe? And since I haven’t been watching him at all, I guess I’ve already boycotted him. :)

This is coming from a guy who was formerly a Republican,That was a member of the House Of Representatives at the same time as Newt Gingrich Whe. The Democrats suffered their worst defeat in 50+years.

Now all he can do is act like the Liberals he dispised on a Cable TV Network Few People even watch.

Scarborough is just a boring moron. Who would want to watch him?

He doesn't even have any of the laughably insane pyschotic logic that makes it occasionally fun to watch Maddow, Matthews or O'Donnell make asses of themselves.

Scarborough's just lifeless and clueless.

Boycott the SPONSORS, not the show, which is unwatched anyway...

Maybe this should be a topic for a new thread. But I have an idea.

Most businesses have a directory of employees with titles. I would love to see all the networks publish a list of their show hosts with a title that distinguishes news from commentator.

Those two are the most uncomfortable looking pair on Morning TV

She tries to be friendly but he ignores her and doesn’t even look at her or respond to her

He's got a show? I thought that after the conservatives pushed him out of his congressional district that he took up pole-dancing or pimping.

He was actually a pretty good Congressman at one time but something happened and he jumped the shark.

I’ll do you one better.

Let’s all just boycott MSNBC for life... We’ll never have to worry about “Joe” getting a show on another network.

And Jimmy Carter’s neo-national socialist (White Russian) former nat. security psycho Zbigneiew for a father-— what a heritage.

Joe S, a white columbian marching powder monkey from the Panhandle— anyone in the know in Pensacola knows who/what he is.

Joe Boy needs to hook up with another washed up loser on the RINO shoals in Florida-— one, tanned trial lawyer Charlie Crist (Christofouros, in the original)— and they could “go Greek” together.

Just sick of this bastard (joe i mean).
