  • MSNBC on Etheridge Assault: An 'Ambush Interview,' GOP 'Set Up'

    In the 2PM ET hour on MSNBC, anchor Tamron Hall did a news brief on Democratic Congressman Bob Etheridge assaulting two students attempting to ask him a question last week, proclaiming: "...there are some Democrats that are blasting the people allegedly behind this video....some would catagorize that as an ambush interview..."

    Classic case of blaming the victim. These people are deranged.

    Guess Mike could always get a gig with the Vienna Boys Choir . . . If MSNBC libs like Olbermann and Matthews were surprisingly critical of Pres. Obama's speech last night, PBO can apparently count on one defender at the network: Mika Brzezinski. So fiercely did Brzezinski go after Mike Barnicle on Morning Joe today for his criticism of the speech, that the panel agreed poor Mike had been "emasculated." Joe Scarborough took it a graphic step further, saying Mika had "castrated" the former Boston Globe columnist. View video here.
  • Mika: Boehner Should 'Just Bend Over'

    Has Pres. Obama's ass-kickin' line given license to MSM members to offer cruder commentary? Could be, judging from Mika Brzezinski's Morning Joe performance today, in which she suggested that House Republican leader John Boehner should "just bend over." Mika normally plays the role of Morning Joe hall monitor, keeping the rambunctious trio of Joe Scarborough, Mike Barnicle and Willie Geist in line. But with Joe away today, it was Mika who indulged in some off-color imagery. Prompting Mika's remark was a clip of Boehner wondering why Pres. Obama isn't looking for someone's "ass to kick" on the subject of unrestrained...
  • Time's Stengel: Sestak? Who He?

    There was a classic moment on Morning Joe today when Mika Brzezinski asked Time editor Rick Stengel whether the magazine's current issue contains anything about the allegations that the Obama admin offered Joe Sestak a top federal job in return for getting out of the Senate primary against Arlen Specter. Hat tip NB reader sarainitaly. A flat-footed Stengel seemed totally stumped. He stammered and stumbled until Mika gently explained she was talking about "the Sestak controversy. Joe Sestak." Finally the penny appeared to drop: "oh, Sestak. No. No. There is not. There is not." View video here.

    On the one hand, you might say it was the least surprising coming-out since Ricky Martin announced he was gay. On the other, it was refreshing to hear Mika Brzezinski say words we knew to be true but at least in my case had never heard her unequivocally pronounce before: "I'm a Democrat." Mika made her declaration in the context of arguing that just because she's a Democrat doesn't mean she shouldn't ask tough questions about the Sestak job-offer allegations or Pres. Obama's handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Mika also took a surprising shot at...
  • Joe & Mika Miffed Tapper Not Tapped For ‘This Week’

    Some cross-network love for Jake Tapper on Morning Joe today, as MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski expressed respect for ABC’s Jake Tapper, and disappointment that ABC News had not chosen him as permanent host of its Sunday talk show, This Week. Instead of elevating its home-grown talent, ABC has brought in Christiane Amanpour, late of CNN, to fill the vacancy created by George Stephanopoulos’ move to Good Morning America. Joe and Mika made their comments after rolling tape of Tapper asking Bill Clinton, in an interview aired yesterday, whether he should have been considered to fill the impending Supreme...
  • Mika Brzezinski's Revelation: Too Much Focus on 'One or Two' Crazies in ObamaCare Aftermath

    If you've tuned on the news, specifically MSNBC, you don't have to watch for very long to see the network views focusing on fringe elements of the right as a newsworthy endeavor. However, as MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski suggested, discretion should be exercised with the amount of attention given to these radical components of the opposition to President Barack Obama's health care reform endeavors. "Yeah, call it out but also I think we have to be careful along the way," Brzezinski said on the March 26 broadcast. "I think this happened during the campaign. I think this happened...

    Don't blame Mika—she was just obeying White House orders . . . When Joe Scarborough tried this morning to comment on Pres. Obama's latest ObamaCare oration, Mika Brzezinski unleashed a series of seemingly serious kicks at his ankles. Having successfully silenced her sidekick, Mika proceeded to read off her Blackberry a statement extolling the glories of what PBO has vouschafed onto a grateful people. At one point, Mika said "I have some talking points from the White House." Being the naive and trusting person I am, I assumed Mika was kidding. Except that, upon a bit of Googling, it appears...

    Barbara Walters was among the guests the other night at New York's Kouros Gallery for Mika Brzezinski's new book "All Things At Once." Brzezinski's book is dedicated to her mother, the sculptor Emilie Brzezinski. The event was co-hosted by Miles Nadal, Chairman of MDC Partners and The Daily Beast's Tina Brown. Other newsers in attendance: Mika's morning partner, Joe Scarborough. Their boss, MSNBC president Phil Griffin, NBCU CEO Jeff Zucker, CNN's Alina Cho, Gayle King, Tom Brokaw and The New York Times' Andrew Ross Sorkin.

    As she continues a tour for her new book, All Things at Once, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski opened up with Julie Menin about the state of the media today. "I've worked in the mainstream media for all the networks and I will say what people aren't saying. It's got a liberal world view. There are great people working at the networks, and they're mostly democrats, ok?," said Brzezinski, whose father was National Security Adviser to Pres. Carter. "I think honestly what needs to happen, is we need to stop pretending about who we are and every journalist should tell us what...

    Fox News on-air talent, eat your heart out - that is, when it comes to Mika Brzezinski's ideal conservative. Brzezinski appeared at Politics & Prose bookstore in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 13 to promote her new book, "All Things at Once" along with her MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host and author of "The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America's Promise," Joe Scarborough. Brzezinski was asked by a member of the audience why she is sometimes reluctant to be more vocal with her ideologically liberal views on their show. She explained that wasn't necessarily her role. ...more (w/video)...

    Here is video of MSNBC's Morning Joe crew mocking Sarah Palin for her answer to a question posed by Glenn Beck yesterday. Beck asked Palin (Part 5, 4:30 mark) who her "favorite founding father" is. Palin at first said "all of them," because she went on to explain that they collectively pledged their lives and fortunes to gaining Independence for America. After Beck rudely interrupted her with "bullcrap," she finished her sentence and then said George Washington would have to be her choice because he really led them. MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski laughs and scoffs at Palin, and then at around...
  • Remember Wright? Mika Says Obama 'Worked For Decades' To Transcend Racial Issues

    Does the name Jeremiah Wright ring a bell with Mika Brzezinski? The Morning Joe co-host sought today to explain the pass Pres. Obama gave Harry "negro dialect" Reid by claiming that PBO has "worked to transcend racial issues for decades." The skeptical look on Joe Scarborough's face [see still after jump] as Mika uttered her assertion was priceless. Let's take a stroll down memory lane with Rev. Wright [h/t Bump Shack], and consider that as far as the record shows, PBO never uttered a peep as his pastor made the following remarks, and to the contrary chose this man to...
  • Tina Brown: Palin's Confidence Based On 'Total Ignorance'

    Tina Brown is the very avatar of elite MSM opinion. So when the Daily Beast creator, late of the New Yorker and Vanity Fair, derides Sarah Palin as ignorant, it's safe to assume she's expressing a view harbored in many a liberal media breast. On today's Morning Joe, while admitting a grudging regard for her appeal, Brown claimed Palin's confidence is based on "total ignorance." Hosts Joe Scarborough [who last week took his own shot at Sarah's smarts] and Mika Brzezinski, if not precisely leaping to Palin's defense, did respond with some skepticism. View video here.

    DB: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest? Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch? DB: What if they fly over anyway? Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this...

    Last year Zbigniew Brzezinski, adviser to former US president Jimmy Carter, described the Bush administration's policy of maintaining the option of military action against Iran as "counterproductive." Now Brzezinski, who advises Obama on foreign policy, is calling for the US to shoot down Israeli jets. Brzezinski is known to be anti-Israel. The Weekly Standard Blog reported: In a little noticed interview with the Daily Beast (presumably little noticed because serious people don't read the Daily Beast), Zbigniew Brzezinski suggests that Barack Obama do more than just refuse to support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites -- the American president...
