MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough blasted the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, saying the paper is going out of its way to mention Donald Trump’s talking points.
“There is no doubt the Wall Street Journal has gone from being the most hostile conservative voice toward Donald Trump during the campaign to certainly now seeming to bend over backwards to actually parrot much of what the administration puts out,” Scarborough said.
The MSNBC morning show pointed to a Journal story titled, “Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump on Leak Concerns.” It includes the sentence, “The officials emphasized that they know of no instance in which crucial information about security threats or potential plotting has been omitted.
Scarborough also criticized a recent editorial that appeared in the paper that did not mention any contacts that Michael Flynn had with Russia.
“Instead their editorial focused solely on leaks. It was as if Donald Trump had written the editorial himself,” Scarborough said.
Just yesterday, co-host Mika Brzezinski said she doesn’t want Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway appearing on her show, citing her “as not credible anymore.”
Brzezinski explained that Conway often gets herself booked for her frequent television appearances, saying, “We know for a fact that she tries to get herself booked on this show. I won’t do it because I don’t believe in fake news.”
