    Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.” . . CBS in early October hyped O’Rourke as a “rising star.” Sadly for journalists, the “rising star” is now losing by an average of seven points. Over on MSNBC, Wednesday, Eddie Glaude Jr predicted an O’Rourke victory, adding, “If not, then I'll just reach for my Jamieson bottle.”

    Veteran Morning Joe viewers were surely anticipating an emotional reaction from Mika Brzezinski this morning in response to President Trump having called Stormy Daniels "horseface." After all, Trump had once tweeted that Mika was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" when he met her at Mar-a-Lago. Mika and her fiancé Joe Scarborough have not forgotten, relishing every opportunity to take it to the President. And Mika delivered as expected this morning, calling President Trump "base, animalistic and disgusting" for his "horseface" remark. Brzezinski took things a significant step further, wondering "what could the Russians have on him?"Get the rest of the...

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...

    Donald Trump is responsible for all manner of things, particularly if you ask anyone at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post. He’s caused unrest around the world using nothing more than tweets, sparked riots in the streets and I’m pretty sure at least a couple of people have blamed him for global warming. But perhaps his greatest trick of all has been to increase the rates of alcohol consumption in America. Or at least that’s the opinion of WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker. Amid hurricanes, a vanished journalist, the recent Supreme Court hearings, midterms and “mobs,” it...

    Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers. Hannity was the most watched cable show in the country averaging 4.4 million total viewers. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Ingraham Angle both clocked in with 3.7 million viewers. Ultimately, a total of five Fox...
  • Scarborough: ‘I Challenge’ Media to Investigate How Dems Handled Ford Accusations

    Breitbart ^ | 9 October 2018 | TRENT BAKER
    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday challenged media to investigate how the Democrats handled Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Scarborough argued Ford’s “unsubstantiated allegations” that leaked would “most likely not have made print” five or 10 years ago. “What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and asked Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing. Not one,” stated Scarborough. He...

    After Brett Kavanaugh was smeared as a gang rapist, after Feinstein's last-minute machinations, after having to endure lectures from Richard Blumenthal--Richard Blumenthal!--about "integrity," can you begrudge Republicans some celebration over the Kavanaugh confirmation? Yes--if you're the cast of Morning Joe. Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

    Imagine a conservative saying on MSNBC that female Dem senators were being "so emotional, almost hysterical....behaving as if it's their time of the month." Does anyone doubt that said conservative would be forcibly escorted off the set? Yet on Ari Melber's MSNBC show The Beat Thursday night, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, speaking of Republican senators who had spoken out on the Kavanaugh confirmation, said: "First of all, I just want to comment on that appearance by those senators today. They are so emotional, almost hysterical. I mean, I would make a joke about it, that they're behaving as if...

    Mediaite ^ | October 3,2018 | Colby Hall
    Joe Scarborough may have publicly left the Republican party, but he still very often takes the same conservative approach to the news of the day. This was on full display this morning has he slammed what he sees as biased media coverage of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whose confirmation is in question after numerous sexual misconduct allegations from over three decades ago have come to light. “The media coverage of this has been so one-sided, it has been so biased,” Scarborough claimed, adding the media’s “presumption from the beginning has been that every single allegation made against the...

    Cory Booker’s shameless gambit of launching his presidential bid by attacking Jeff Sessions has really gotten under this Insurrectionist’s skin. From my Quick Hit of this morning: “I reckon he earned the scorn of many of his fellow Dems for his transparent ploy.” And so it was gratifying to get confirmation this morning from Joe Scarborough, who on Morning Joe said this of Booker’s stunt: “obviously calculated . . . in a way that would have the other senators, especially Democratic senators, wanting to drag him away . . . a lot of senators irked, especially on the Democratic side....

    Deadline ^ | October 5, 2018 | Date Hayes
    Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski envision possibly four more years of Trump in 2020 — just not Donald Trump. “Ivanka Trump Is going to run for president,” Brzezinski declared during an on-stage conversation with editor David Remnick on opening night of the New Yorker Festival. Remnick did a double-take, asking them to explain the theory. “He’s got this obsession with positioning her,” Brzezinski said. “You can pull up her Instagram and she’s got these carefully composed sizzle reels, ,,, She’s going to all of the companies–” Scarborough interjected, “Giving speeches in front of the presidential seal.” He...

    When I saw Mediaite’s original headline for this clip earlier today, I thought Brzezinski was suggesting that Conway might have lied about being sexually assaulted in order to lend a little moral authority to the White House’s criticisms of Christine Blasey Ford.But that’s not what she’s saying. Nor is she saying, as some critics have implied, that she thinks Conway should somehow be “forced” to describe the details of her sexual assault.What she’s saying is that Conway shouldn’t complain about how delicately Ford’s been treated if she’s unwilling to put herself in Ford’s shoes by describing the details of...

    If once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, and three times is a trend, what is five times? Because that is the number of times that we have noted the Joe Scarborough/Mika Brzezinski duo being fair to Brett Kavanaugh. The latest came on today's Morning Joe, where Scarborough absolutely slammed the MSM's "biased, one-sided" pro-Ford coverage. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/24/18 | Becket Adams
    Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has covered herself in shame these last couple of weeks. Her desire to see Brett Kavanaugh's chances of replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy destroyed by any means necessary has been a sickening display of petty, short-sighted partisan zealotry. But there is one unintentionally humorous moment in the parade of awful that has vomited forth from the senator’s office: The moment this week when she attacked the GOP for supposedly behaving like ... Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.? Republicans “cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up,” Hirono said Monday on...

    Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware predicted Monday that Republicans will “almost certainly” have to resort to the “nuclear” option to approve the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which held four days of hearings on the Gorsuch nomination, doesn’t envision Democrats crossing party lines to vote in favor of President Trump’s nominee. “He will get an up or down vote. Sen. Schumer, our minority leader, has said it is going to be a 60-vote margin, and I doubt he is going to get 60 votes. The question...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    A surprising exchange on today's Morning Joe between Mika Brzezinski and Jonathan Swan of Axios. The upshot: Mika found Brett Kavanaugh's anger to be authentic. Brzezinski twice stated her agreement with Swan's view that "if you did believe you were innocent of what he's been accused of, not being angry would not seem natural." Note also Swan's opinion that Kavanaugh's anger was "not manufactured" to please a "party of one," meaning President Trump.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Jane Mayer said on Monday that Deborah Ramirez, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her, told her New Yorker colleague Ronan Farrow that she couldn’t be sure of the Supreme Court nominee’s guilt. Confronted with a New York Times report indicating Ramirez expressed doubts about Kavanaugh’s guilt to former Yale classmates, Mayer said Ramirez shared those doubts before they published their bombshell report on Sunday. “To Ronan she said she wasn’t absolutely certain, she needed to make certain before she was going to say anything publicly. She remembered the specifics, the graphic specifics, and she tried to remember for...

    Why is the New York government hiding the name of a woman who admitted that she had falsely accused two men of rape after her false accusation caused them to spend 26 and 11 years in prison? I recently came across this New York Times article from May of this year.It says that two innocent men were falsely accused of rape, and were convicted largely based on the testimony of the alleged victim.One of the innocent men spent 26 years in prison. The other innocent man spent 11 years in prison.The woman now says that the rape “never happened.”The New York...

    Imagine what would ensue if someone on TV suggested that the Democrats were a party of "ignorant" women, or non-white people. Such a person would be forcibly defenestrated for racism/sexism before you could say "Roseanne Barr." But when it comes to white men, all's fair and unobjectionable. And so it was on today's Morning Joe that Donny Deutsch, discussing the Republicans' handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation, said: "You're seeing on display a metaphor of, like, what this party is, and just basically, just ignorant white men."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
