The story of How Bill Clinton Got His Groove Back continued today on Morning Joe, where Joe Scarborough took offense to what he sees as media bias for the former Democratic president. Mika Brzezinski characterized Judge Henry Hudson as a “George W. Bush appointee,” and it was that qualifier that so irked Scarborough. “They never say Clinton appointee” when one is implicated in an unpopular event, he said. But whenever there’s controversy, there are Bush appointees and Reagan appointees all over the place—including MSNBC, he made sure to note.
“It was our staff that did it this time,” he said, before launching into his mini-rant on the matter. Newsweek escapee Jon Meacham was there to “totally agree” with him, offering that “it shows a certain tendency to caricature the right.”
This morning’s MSNBC argument corresponds to last night’s MSNBC argument, which had Chuck Todd musing to Chris Matthews that there a lot of “Clinton Kool-Aid drinkers” in the media who are “enamored” with any “shiny metal object that has the Clinton name on it.”
Scarborough, however, isn’t as star-struck by the Secretary of State’s husband, which you can see for yourself in the MSNBC clip below.
