    Once again, the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Joe Scarborough hinted that "certain networks," (ahem, MSNBC) hold quite the double standard between Democrats and Republicans. When the subject matter was President Obama's snub of an Iraq War question during his vacation at Martha's Vineyard – he remarked "We're buying shrimp, guys" – Scarborough pointed out that network coverage of Bush would have been far more negative.As NewsBusters reported last week, Scarborough also believes "certain networks" will "maul" Haley Barbour if he runs for President in 2012.

    VIDEO: Joe Scarborough, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," discussed news coverage Thursday of President Obama's "We're buying shrimp" response to reporters who asked about the Iraq War. Scarborough argued that "certain networks" would have trashed President Bush if he had made the same response, and yet have not criticized President Obama over his remarks

    Following a harsh exchange between MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas on Twitter in May, Moulitsas writes today that he has been banned (for now) from appearing on the network. He publishes an email from MSNBC President Phil Griffin explaining the reasoning (a “cheap shot”), but Moulitsas concludes he has “been booted from the network because of a Scarborough temper tantrum.” Moulitsas writes today on Daily Kos about the circumstances in a post “Why I am blacklisted by MSNBC“. “In case you were wondering why you haven’t seen me on MSNBC recently, it seems that Joe...

    Ad hominem attacks supplanted thoughtful discussion yet again on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” On Monday, co-host Joe Scarborough chastised Republicans as “genuinely stupid” for criticizing President Barack Obama’s handling of the BP oil spill, adding that the GOP must think the American people are “dumb as hell.” “The Republicans blaming Obama look genuinely stupid because of eight years of deregulation,” scolded Scarborough, who is developing a penchant for favoring personal attacks over rational debate

    Looks like Zucker is history, and you know what that means… Let the dominoes begin to fall! The New York Post is reporting the Jeff Zucker is history. Additionally, our sources say trhat Zucker has actually been answering to a Comcast liaison for months. He is no longer in charge and makes no decisions on his own. Good thing for NBC. His reign over programming has been nothing short of a disaster. There is also widespread chatter inside MSNBC that their days of being a propaganda machine for Obama are over. Comcast is not likely to keep the formula of...

    Here is video of Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner on “Morning Joe” finally saying that President Obama and his administration need to put all the relevant facts out concerning the alleged offer of an administration job in order to get Joe Sestak to drop his U.S. Senate bid against incumbent Arlen Specter. Joe Scarborough said he believes Joe Sestak will eventually be forced to walk back his claim that he was offered the bribe of a job. Pat Buchanan agreed that Sestak is going to have to “walk that cat back a long way.” They are probably right. In order to...

    Joe Scarborough has finally smelt the coffee and is moving forward arm in arm with his Socialist soul mate Mika Brzezinski into radio sunset under the guise of taking a "brief hiatus". Citadel claims that they are "working" on getting them a three hour show(with wishful hints that Rush Limbaugh could be bumped to make room for the Obama mouth pieces)Don't Hold Your Breath Joe & Mika! Fact is, Joe Scarborough has been shown on his TV show, Morning Joe receiving news ideas directly from the white house; even going as far as changing his point of view when the...

    Here is video from Morning Joe today, where Joe Scarborough actually likened the new Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law to Nazi "Guards" demanding, "show me your papers." Scarborough said that even he - as an anti-amnesty person - "is offended by this," and said it will be a "nightmare for Republicans" in 2012 if they are identified, as Chuck Todd described it as, "the Party of 'Show me your papers.'" This analysis is beyond over the top. The Arizona law is essentially what the Federal Law already is, but it is not being enforced. To equate what Arizona is doing to...

    Brent Bozell thinks I have fallen from the ranks of true conservatives and wrote a scathing blog on his website listing my offenses against Republicanism. Judging from the harshness of his tone, you would think that I threw my lot in with a pack of pot smoking Greenwich Village Marxists or, at the very least, lent grudging support to the public option. But no. My crimes against conservatism were much worse. Brent Bozell has accused me of committing the unpardonable sins of saying unflattering things about George W. Bush, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. The truth is that while I...

    Fox News's Chris Wallace Thursday blasted Joe Scarborough for suggesting that he rolled his eyes at the camera after Sunday's interview with Sarah Palin, and said he was "offended" people even watched the former Congressman on MSNBC. The "Fox News Sunday" host was referring to what transpired on Monday's "Morning Joe." "Look at the end of Chris Wallace's interview where he rolls his eyes, uh, embarrassed. There's no doubt he is," said Scarborough. "Now he will deny that, but Chris was sending a message to all his friends, 'yes I know she is not a serious thinker.'" As Scarborough predicted,...

    Joe Scarborough was surely right about one thing: he's going to take some flak . . . On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said that Sarah Palin has been "lowering the bar" with her public pronouncements, asserting that she hasn't done the necessary homework to permit her to speak seriously on the issues. Joe also claimed that while "top conservatives" are afraid to take Palin on publicly, "behind the scenes" they are angry at her for her alleged lack of preparation.

    Is The Tea Party Over? The anti-Obama anger that helped fuel the 'Massachusetts miracle' is now threatening to tear the movement apart. By Joe Scarborough | NEWSWEEK Jan 22 As the election results began reaching the White House, the young president found himself shaken. How could this unknown Republican win election in one of the last great bastions of progressive politics? How could it be that not so long before, it was the president's own party that had been carried to power by a wave of public discontent similar to the one that now threatened to destroy his ambitious health-care...

    There was a little public tiff between MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Joe Scarborough, this week. It started on Monday when venomous Olbermann described Senate Candidate Scott Brown as "an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, tea-bagging supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees." Scarborough blasted Olbermann's comments via 3 quick tweets:

    Donny Deutsch is host of The Entrepreneurs, a primetime special profiling the success stories of America’s entrepreneurs on CNBC. I thought I would introduce him to you because I didn’t know who he was until he appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, and I assume you haven’t heard of him before either. As said, despite him being an absolute nobody, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough invited Deutsch to appear on their show nonetheless. ‘Why?’ I wondered, ‘why would they invite somebody no one has ever heard of?’ The answer to my question came after only a few minutes: that’s...
