  • REPORT: Fox News Hosts Criticized, Mocked Trump During Advertiser Meeting

    A new report about the relationship between President Donald Trump and Fox News alleges that hosts Chris Wallace and Martha MacCallum criticized and mocked Trump during a closed-door meeting last month. Fox News hosts Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, and Martha MacCallum attended an event in Manhattan to assure advertisers that “Trump doesn’t own” them, according to a piece published Sunday in the New York Times. The Times report continues: “‘Contrary to the opinion of some people, he’s not our boss,’ Ms. MacCallum said, marveling at Mr. Trump’s criticism of Fox News for airing interviews with Democratic presidential candidates. ‘It is...

    The Washington Times ^ | Sunday, October 13, 2019 | Seth McLaughlin
    Campaign's attempt to berate the press, squelch stories has so far shown only modest payoff Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has shown flimsy fealty to the facts in his own political career, but his campaign is now fighting to be the arbiter of truth, lobbying media outlets to squelch stories and refuse ads he says stretch the truth. His campaign asked networks to stop booking Trump ally Rudolph W. Giuliani and then tried to organize a boycott of a Trump campaign ad by accusing the president of lying about Mr. Biden’s actions to try to get a Ukrainian prosecutor...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 11, 2019 | Graham Piro
    A panel on MSNBC's Morning Joe expressed skepticism about Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) ability to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. "Americans don't want, 160 million Americans don't want to be told they can't get the insurance they want," MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch said. "Elizabeth Warren, and I take a lot of heat for this and she's wonderful, is the only thing that can keep Trump in office." Cohost Joe Scarborough said he has heard from moderate Democratic voters that not nominating former vice president Joe Biden could drive them away from the party. "If what we're hearing is...

    Let's give Morning Joe some modified credit. On today's show, Democrat House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff was criticized for not telling the truth when Sam Stein asked him on the show's September 17th episode whether his committee had spoken with the whistleblower. Schiff denied it to Stein. In fact, the whistleblower had contacted the committee, and they spoke. Offered Stein today: "I will say, this puts him in some trouble. He clearly wasn't being forthright in that interview with us a couple weeks ago. And he should have been." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Dire talk of fascism, threats to democracy, constitutional crises, etc. are Morning Joe's everyday fare in the Age of Trump. But to the fevered proceedings, Willie Geist normally brings a welcome dose of equanimity. It was thus a shock to hear Willie of all people floating a dark scenario on today's show. He claimed that there's no one around the table or watching at home who thinks that President Trump will "go quietly" if he's impeached or defeated at the polls. Geist troublingly claimed, "that’s the context in which you hear this coup talk, and you hear this civil war...

    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....
  • MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough falls for 'Daily Show' parody of Trump-Ukraine call transcript

    Fox News ^ | September 25, 2019 | Bradford Betz
    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough appeared to be fooled Wednesday by a parody transcript of a July phone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The parody transcript was tweeted by Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” amid claims that Trump improperly withheld military funds from Ukraine until it investigated then-Vice President Joe Biden’s dealings in the country. The White House released an unclassified transcript of the July 25 call between Trump and Zelensky, during which the president made no explicit reference to withholding military aid. “The Daily Show’s” tweet shows a clearly doctored version of that transcript, portraying Trump as...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 9/23/19 | TNS Staff
    Because practically no one watches them or their POS network MSNBC, morning anchors and hubby-wife duo Mika Brzezinski and “Morning Joe” Scarborough have to do and say outrageous things to get noticed. Like practically beg Obama’s second secretary of state, John Kerry, to jump into the 2020 Democratic presidential race. Because, apparently, even clown ‘journalists’ recognize a train wreck when they see one, and that perfectly sums up the class of idiots running for the 2020 Donkey Party crown.

    This was rank political exploitation of Biden family tragedies as a shield against legitimate inquiry. On today's Morning Joe, after mentioning the death of Joe Biden's first wife and daughter in a car accident, and the death of son Beau due to brain cancer, a mawkish Mika Brzezinski described Hunter as the "surviving son" and denounced criticism of him by the Trump campaign.

    VIDEO Donny Deutsch after going through several "Big Ones" in the past thinks that this time he has finally found the ultimate "Big One" on Fridays's Morning Joe that will be the "Game Changer" to take down Trump. Of course, he did not go into specifics. Could it be that doing so would harm a certain Democrat candidate that he is supporting? Unfortunately for poor Donny, President Trump did go into those inconvenient specifics in a video that he tweeted about Joe Biden that Donny preferred to avoid.

    Just when it seems that the quality of the Democratic candidates and the ethical standards of the Democratic media might start to rebound to normal civilized levels (not a high bar since the days of JFK, LBJ, and Hubert Humphrey), they excavate new depths of inanity and unprofessionalism. I believe that the latest outburst against Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh will be seen as a significant milestone in the slide to perdition of the Democratic presidential nominating process and of that party’s lock-step media accomplices. The New York Times produced an allegation that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted a woman 30 years...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome reached its apotheosis on today's Morning Joe, as MSNBC "Republican" Elise Jordan literally called for a Trump adviser to be sent off to die. Commenting on Rudy Giuliani's conversation of yesterday with Chris Cuomo on CNN regarding possible contacts between the Trump administration and Ukraine, Jordan said: "It's simply astounding to watch Drunk Grandpa last night, who just needs to be pulled off to hospice, if not . . .

    Thursday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough reacted to President Donald Trump touting the wall to be built at the southern border in California the day before. Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski after playing a series of clips of Trump speaking at the border laughed at Trump’s “ridiculous” and “sick” comments regarding the wall, calling his remarks and the wall itself “all show biz.” “It’s all show biz, that’s really all it is,” argued Scarborough. “It’s all show biz because if you even talk to his first secretary of Homeland Security, General Kelly, he said, you know, physical structures, there...

    Joe Scarborough still occasionally claims to be a conservative. But based on his rant this morning, it sure sounds like Joe would prefer Supreme Court appointees in the mold of RBG/Sotomayor rather than Gorsuch/Kavanaugh.On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough fretted that if President Trump and Mitch McConnell are successful, they will "shape the judiciary for the next 50 years." Scarborough expressed his concern in the context of criticizing Joe Kennedy for launching a Dem primary campaign against incumbent Sen. Ed Markey in Massachusetts. Scarborough worried that money spent on that campaign will divert funds that could be used to defeat President...

    Morning Joe might have been more motivated by concern for Democrats than with upholding journalistic standards. But the show did today rip the New York Times for its "glaring omission" in failing to include in the original version of its article about a new accusation against Brett Kavanaugh the fact that the alleged victim doesn't want to speak and that friends say doesn't recall the incident. Joe Scarborough also criticized the Times for failing to mention that the person who brought forth the new allegation, Max Stier, was on the other side from Kavanaugh in the Ken Starr probe into...

    HBO host Bill Maher derided 2020 Democrats'apparent shift to the left during the primary season Thursday, suggesting it was a plague on the progressive movement. “It’s not good. It’s kind of a cancer on progressivism," Maher said on "Morning Joe" hours before the third Democratic primary debate. MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had asked the comedian about the 2020 field's criticism of former President Obama: "How maddening is that to you that they're having this race to the far left?" Several media personalities criticized the 2020 field after the second primary debate when most candidates knocked the Obama administration on issues like immigration and health care as a way to attack...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski appeared to suggest that President Donald Trump's youngest son, Barron Trump, isn't actually his during Friday morning's broadcast of Morning Joe. The conversation started when Brzezinski, her co-host Joe Scarborough and a panel of guests were critiquing former Vice President Joe Biden's performance during Thursday night's third Democratic debate. The two showed a clip during which Biden made a gaffe while going over on his time talking about education. In his response to racial inequality in schools, Biden said a helpful way to educate kids is to "make sure the record player is on at night."...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was fed up Friday morning over the Democratic presidential candidates spending too much time at Thursday night’s debate “quibbling” over minor health care policy differences. The “Morning Joe” host said he was “astounded” to see the candidates, for a large portion of the first hour, “pounding each other on technocratic niceties” related to their health care plans, while ignoring the big picture. […] Scarborough concluded by saying that pitching “Medicare-for-All’ to the American people is a “waste of time” because it will never pass in Congress after the election. “Barack Obama basically had to use every...

    On today's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch urged the Democrats participating in tonight's debate to "assault" President Trump, because "we need to get rid of this ogre." Deutsch claims nothing else matters because "our democracy is under siege." Instead of squabbling over their various plans to wreck America's health care system, or who said what about busing 35 years ago, Deutsch urged the Democrats participating in tonight's debate to focus their fire on President if they haven't been doing that. "I hope one of them stands up, and understands what the American people want to hear tonight. And they want...

    VIDEO Morning Joe Scarborough snapped and called former Senator Claire McCaskill "insufferable" for daring to disagree with him. This was another symptom of his Anger Management issues. Later in the show, Scarborough mocked panelist Donny Deutsch over his recently cancelled show (due to toilet ratings) "Saturday Night Politics."
