Information/Press 5 - Learning To Find GOP Plants & The Fake Anti-Obama Echo Chamber
Theory: Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd & Andrea Mitchell are GOP (NeoCon) plants in MSNBC to help them sway public opinion and win elections.
Introduction To Morning Joe
Salon:Attention, Joe Scarborough: “Morning Joe” is also a punch line on the “Daily Show” - The "Morning Joe" host dismissed CNN as a "punch line," but his own show doesn't fare much better on Comedy Central
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough is confident that his morning news program on MSNBC will continue “covering hard news” despite a recent report that the network’s ratings are slipping, and that, for the second consecutive month, CNN’s “New Day” has beat “Morning Joe” in viewership. Scarborough dismissed CNN, telling the New York Times that the network has become a mockery thanks to the “Daily Show”:
“CNN has made itself a punch line on the ‘Daily Show’ for its phony breaking-news headlines and breathless coverage of random ocean debris,” Joe Scarborough, the anchor of “Morning Joe,” said. “ ‘Morning Joe’ topped CNN in the first quarter by covering hard news, just as we have for the past five years. We will do the same in the future and won’t be distracted by ‘X-Files’ cable news programming.”
While this may be true, Scarborough must have forgotten that “Morning Joe” is also a long-running punch line on “The Daily Show.” It was only a month ago when Samantha Bee performed a 6-minute, one-woman scene devoted to the program, describing “Morning Joe” as a “family” that puts its own agenda ahead of anything else.
“My ‘Morning Joe’ family may fight and bicker and star-fuck like nobody’s business,” Bee said, “but when the chips are down for one of our powerful friends, we pull together to attack anyone who questions them. Because that’s what morning news shows do.”

Believe it or not, the liberal answer to Fox actually makes for worse TV
MSNBC, we’re told all the time, is the liberal Fox News. That’s reductive and stupid. It isn’t. MSNBC isn’t the liberal Fox News for two very important reasons: It usually demonstrates a greater respect for the truth than Fox News, and it’s not as good as Fox News. It’s not as good at being liberal as Fox is at being conservative. Fox is rigidly ideologically consistent, with its “straight news” programs echoing the same talking points and pushing the same slanted stories as its opinion shows. While there’s no doubt that MSNBC is more unapologetically liberal than it used to be, it’s still all over the place, with a conservative anchoring its flagship morning show, objective Beltway “straight news” proponents like Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell dominating in the daytime, and weekends full of … prison shows. But more important, it’s not as good as Fox at being compelling TV, which is why millions more people watch Fox every day. (There are demographic reasons for Fox’s advantage, too, but it’s still a huge number.)
