    "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski apologized on Friday after coming under fire for saying that she had tried to set up meetings between veteran journalist Mark Halperin and women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. "In our discussion about sexual harassment this morning, I said some things that hurt people," the MSNBC host said in a statement, posted online by CNN's Oliver Darcy. "In the case of Mark, my goal today was to start a conversation about hearing from the men whenever we can, but I realize that is not my place." "It isn't my call to make, and...
  • Heilemann Sure Roy Moore a “Perp,” but Claims Knew Nothing of Partner Halperin’s Misconduct

    Ain’t that odd: based just on the transcript of his interview with Sean Hannity, John Heilemann can look at Roy Moore and say, “that’s a perp right there.” . . . So surely supersleuth Heilemann must have been aware of the sexual misconduct by Mark Halperin, which led to his firing from MSNBC and loss of other engagements. After all, Heilemann worked side-by-side with Halperin for a decade, co-authoring two books and co-hosting a TV show with him, among other projects.

    CNN senior correspondent Clarissa Ward said on Thursday that Mark Halperin’s alleged sexual harassment was an “open secret” at ABC News “for years.” Ward — who was an international correspondent for ABC News from 2007 to 2010 — took to Twitter to respond to the CNN report that spoke with five women who accused the now NBC News analyst of sexual harassment while he was at the news network: This was an open secret when I was at @ABC for years- brave of these women to speak up. https://t.co/xQgu2xZMUk — Clarissa Ward (@clarissaward) October 26, 2017

    In the course of his time at ABC News, journalist and co-author of Game Change, Mark Halperin, sexually harassed multiple women, according to report released Wednesday night which cites five women who claim to have endured the harassment."During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me," Halperin said in a statement obtained by CNN. "I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize. Under the circumstances, I'm going to take a step back from my day-to-day...

    Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?" Imagine he pressed further. Do you have a favorite traditional black food? Who's your favorite African-American performer? It's a safe bet that journalist would be lucky to have a job today as a greeter at Wal-Mart. Mark Halperin isn't in danger of losing his job -- nor should...

    As most of America slept early last Sunday morning, the Bush administration hustled and bustled to prepare for the Sunday morning talk shows – among others Colin Powell was appearing on "Face the Nation" and Donald Rumsfeld was booked on "Fox News Sunday." Condoleezza Rice was not scheduled to appear until prime time, when she would make a star appearance on CBS' "60 Minutes" – the last in a long line of media appearances that caused 9/11 Commissioner Richard Ben Veniste to quip that "Condi Rice has appeared everywhere but at my local Starbucks." Well, others in the Bush administration...

    Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week and said that there have been people who are optimistic about Trump, but added that there’s the other half who think that this is the worst thing that’s ever happened in their lives. My God—will these people ever get over it? I mean I hope they don’t. The more they whine, the better the Republicans’ electoral chances look in 2018 and 2020. Still, have these folks forgotten about the 9/11 attacks? And Halperin also added that Trump’s victory was more cataclysmic than 9/11 (via Daily Caller): “Outside...

    In his first interview after accepting the Republican presidential nomination, Donald J. Trump spoke with Mark Halperin for THE CIRCUS about the week of the Republican National Convention.

Don't miss new episodes Sundays at 8PM ET/PT. In this wide-ranging interview, Trump discusses that he saved former primary campaign rival Sen.

    With news of the death of Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane, let's take a line from another group of the late 60s, Buffalo Springfield: "there's something happening here." What it is ain't exactly clear, but it doesn't seem to bode well for Hillary Clinton. Today's Morning Joe featured an ominous exchange between Joe Scarborough and Mark Halperin. The notion was that a variety of sources--from a senior network exec, to top Obama admin officials, to FBI agents--are saying the same thing: the FBI investigation of Hillary is much further along than most people realize. Listen to Halperin: "the body language...

    So who's Hillary's enforcer? Last week we asked "who got to Donny Deutsch?" when he suddenly became supportive of Hillary whereas just the week before he had been very critical of her. Now the same thing has happened with Ed Rendell. Just yesterday, the former DNC Chairman and Pennsylvania governor was quoted in the New York Times saying Hillary has handled the email scandal "poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly." But on today's Morning Joe, Ed was suddenly singing a different tune, claiming Hillary is doing everything right and plaintively suggesting that there is no problem. That led Mark Halperin to...

    By now, I assume most of you have figured out that I’m not a huge fan of Sen. Ted Cruz. I’m even less of a fan, however, of what passes for journalism in this country these days, by which I mean the shallow, image-driven, trivia-obsessed folderol that seeks to find the “gotchas” in the most ridiculous things. Did Obama ordering orange juice on the campaign trail mean he’s not a “regular guy” who can relate to the kind of simpletons these overpaid celebrity journalists assume we are? Did Hillary Clinton not tipping in a diner mean she’s insensitive to working...

    After his controversial interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin (which ThinkProgress dubbed “the most racist interview of a 2016 candidate“), Sen. Ted Cruz responded to Halperin’s apology with magnanimity: “Mark Halperin is a serious and fair-minded journalist,” Cruz wrote on his Facebook page. “Today he kindly issued an apology for some silly questions he asked me in an interview. The apology was unnecessary — no offense was taken, nor, I believe, intended — but is certainly appreciated.” This is both smart politics (what’s the saying about picking fights with people who buy paper by the ton and ink by the barrel?)...

    The United States owes Bloomberg columnist Mark Halperin a debt of gratitude. For a rare and fleeting moment, Americans of all political persuasions, religious affiliations, and ethnic backgrounds were united in revulsion over the spectacle of his attempt to interview Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Halperin’s ham-fisted, chauvinistic effort to force Cruz to prove the authenticity of his heritage by riffing extemporaneously on Cuban culture and to speak en Español were both embarrassing and insulting. Halperin’s motives were transparent. He set out to demonstrate in some small way that Cruz was Cuban in name only — a CINO, if you will....

    You don’t have to like Sen. Ted Cruz, or even agree with him, to find offense in a recent line of questioning he endured. More than awkwardness, Mark Halperin offered a stunning small-mindedness as he attempted to tease out Cruz’s Hispanic bona fides: What Cuban food did he like growing up? Which Cuban music does he favor today? Would he welcome fellow Sen. Bernie Sanders to the presidential race, “and I’d like you to do it, if you would, en espańol”? Halperin, famed for co-authoring the book Game Change on the 2012 presidential campaign and prominent today for his analysis...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Bloomberg Television's "With All Due Respect," hosted by Game Change co-authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is probably the object of more ridicule from Beltway and Manhattan insiders than any other news show on television. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. The vast majority of the Gang of 500, a term coined by Halperin many moons ago, thinks the show is really bad. Which is a problem, because the Gang of 500 is Halperin and Heilemann's target audience. The rest of America doesn't watch the show. Although Ruben Navarette, a San Diego-based columnist, did happen upon Halperin's interview with...

    Pobody's Nerfect. On Monday afternoon, Bloomberg Politics editor and MSNBC senior burrito correspondent Mark Halperin apologized for an interview two weeks ago in which he ham-handedly quizzed Senator and 2016 presidential hopeful Ted Cruz (R-TX) on his Cuban heritage. In the interview Halperin questioned Cruz on his Hispanic appeal, even his consumption of Cuban dishes, and offered to let Cruz welcome Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders to the race en Espańol. The interview flew under the radar until it was torn to shreds by San Jose Mercury-News columnist Ruben Navarrette this weekend. “As a Hispanic, I felt like I was watching...
