nslayton:

I am shock at this video. Russell Brand continues to demonstrate that he’s incredibly smart, and that he has a better grasp on real news that TV news anchors. This is one of the most condescending fluff approaches I’ve seen on TV news, and Brand is clearly freaked out by it, then decides to try to save it by offering lessons in manners, focus, and actual news.

After you’re done watching this, read this interview Gawker did with Russell Brand about Bradley Manning: "What’s actually important? A human being doing a thing that was quite bold—possibly from a position of some personal trauma—but that regardless has brought attention to important stuff. We all know that shit goes on! But he’s brought palpable, tangible evidence of mendacious—oh no, don’t want to use that word again—conduct apparently for the protection or for the furtherment of the American people." 

Seems that someone was clearly underestimated this morning.

Joe flirted with the idea of running against Barack Obama. An ex–Florida congressman and a moderate Republican, he conferred with fellow centrists just before the primaries, occasionally shuttling around with his friend Mike Bloomberg. (From time to time, Mika’s father, Zbigniew, Jimmy Carter’s national-security adviser, weighed in with sage advice, as did a handful of George W. alumni.)

Joe could be a good choice. He’s a smart dude and knows a thing or two about reaching out to the other side — something the Republican Party (or even independent voters) might need if Romney loses in November.

The Republican Party has moved so far to the right, you can’t recognize Mitt Romney. What Mitt Romney will appear in October? Mitt Romney has changed positions more often than a pornographic movie queen.

Everyone at Morning Joe considers Pat Buchanan to be a friend and a member of the family. Even though we strongly disagree with the contents of Pat’s latest book, Mika and I believe those differences should have been debated in public.
A statement from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” • Disputing the recent firing of Pat Buchanan by the network in the wake of controversial comments in his most recent book, ”Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” The book, which has drawn the ire of numerous groups, led to a lengthy suspension for the former presidential candidate, who spent a decade at MSNBC. Think the network made the right move? Or should they have let the crew of “Morning Joe” grill him?

Chuck Todd shall henceforth be named “Facepalm” and he shall host a show called “Moments In Extreme Candor.”

"Morning Joe" censors Ann Coulter: She apparently called John McCain a “douchebag,” but she had an entire comment censored in this clip. Perhaps “Morning Joe” was being overly sensitive after the whole hub-bub earlier this year after Mark Halperin called Obama a “dick,” unbleeped? (thanks Matt)

It would be nice to think that the rapidity of the official reaction had to do with legitimate disapproval. Actually, it is a reflex quickened by practice because what cable news now calls political journalism is set up to produce just this kind of ‘television moment’ and its attendant swirl of attention-getting faux controversy.
L.A. Times columnist Tim Rutten • Offering a room-clearing take on the whole situation with Mark Halperin and “Morning Joe.” To put it simply, he doesn’t think it’s actually any sort of controversy of the real kind, but instead an opportunity to create a conversation-of-the-day moment. (Which Halperin’s quip successfully did, by the way.) It’s an idea that started with Fox News but has kinda expanded from there. There’s even a site dedicated to this idea. And well, you know, he’s right. But it makes good TV, and that’s all that matters, right? source  (viafollow)

Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate  and  unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and  all of  our viewers. We strive for a high level of discourse and  comments like  these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be  suspended  indefinitely from his role as an analyst.

Do not call the president a dick on live TV. Even if it’s a(n admittedly great) show that a twelve-year-old wouldn’t be caught dead watching, like “Morning Joe.”

producermatthew:

Breakdown on the set of MSNBC: A clip from The Late Show with David Letterman sent Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski into an uncontrollable giggle fit Monday morning.

The Letterman clip, which lampooned former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart problems, tickled the news anchor’s funny bone twice during the show.

Brzezinski’s co-workers seemed unamused. Co-host Joe Scarborough thought the David Letterman skit was in “bad taste.”

Viewer response was less than positive. A producer for Morning Joe said he’d “never seen such angry e-mails about anything.”

Brzezinski defended her giggles, saying the Letterman skit was a piece of “funny television.” [Video: MSNBC]
