TV game show “Jeopardy!” producers have responded to online uproar from Palestinian sympathizers over a controversial in-game question regarding the state of Israel.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough is angry at the Democrat presidential contenders for having, in last night's debate, focused on the details dividing them regarding health care. He suggests that they should instead paint the bigger picture: "the Democratic Party supports universal healthcare as a right for all Americans!

Later, Scarborough mistakenly suggests that Alex Trebek is the host of "Wheel of Fortune." Willie Geist politely points out that show's host is Pat Sajak.
