Scarborough Gloats Over Fox News 'Trust' Ratings, Ignores MSNBC's Miserable Ones

"And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Time for Joe Scarborough to brush up on the Sermon on the Mount?

On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough gloated at length over survey results indicating that the public's trust in Fox News has declined and that PBS is the only network that more people trust than distrust. But he conveniently failed to mention that Fox News remains the network that more people trust than any other . . . and that his own MSNBC trails way—way!—behind Fox News in public trust.

This says it all: the photo shows Scarborough giddy with glee as he exclaims “it really gets no worse for conservatives!” Ping to Today show list.

Scarborough has got to be one of the more loathsome creatures who once slimed his way through the halls of Congress. Honestly, he’s reptilian and repellent!

The left is a sickness, and Scarborough is part of the left in terms of spreading their propaganda. Joe ignores the complete collapse of the traditional media and gloats over Fox’s reduction. He is too far in to realize the reduction in Fox’s trust rating is coming from people like me who watch Fox purging free thinking conservatives and further marrying the DC consultancy class. Fox is quickly becoming part of the problem, like the rest of the media.

Probably because of Downton Abbey...lol.

It's no much that misrepresents the situation by ignoring his own station's miserable ratings in terms of trust-ability. I am beyond getting upset at the media's left wing pro Dem spin. I expect it and to me it's a given that anything (even seemingly non political things) will have the left/liberal/progressive spin. I can't take them seriously nor can I take people who accept what they "report" seriously.

The more disturbing issue is that more than half of the people think PBS can be trusted as a non biased news source.
