Is Morning Joe losing its hate-all-things-Republican edge? Last week, we noted the show being surprisingly supportive of the Republican decision to move for a vote on Brett Kavanaugh.
Today, Joe Scarborough took things a stunning step further, blasting partisan liberals in the media who have convicted Kavanaugh in advance. Said Scarborough:
"We've been harshly critical of Fox News for being in the tank and being state television for Donald Trump. Let me tell you something. What we've seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a (D) in front of the name of the so-called journalists that have already decided that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist, or, what was the, 'serial sexual abuser.' Oh, really? You know that? Do you really know that?"
Mika had teed up Scarborough's comment by warning guests that today's show would be a "smear-free zone," and "honestly, if there's smearing of Dr. Ford, or Ms. Ramirez, or Brett Kavanaugh on this show, you will be kicked off this set. We're not doing that. It's just facts."
