What makes Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski chief Party Propagandists par excellence? I think it is how with the utmost arrogance and without the slightest attempt at fairness, nuance or balance, they set up their guests with ever-leading questions in such a scripted way as to guarantee the political answers they seek. Day after day they frame their political friends and hustlers into the nation’s heroes and their political enemies into the very essence of evil. MSNBC thinks it can hide it’s essentially nihilist political philosophy and lies, just as Nancy Pelosi thinks that through the cynical use of pious words, she can hide her contempt for traditional Catholicism.

Donald Sutherland on Joe Scarborough, Huffington Post, 2010:
“Who is this idiot? Why is he there? He can’t even listen. He doesn’t conduct a decent conversation. He runs over everyone else’s words with a landslide of diarrhea. I saw him on Friday, stomping around the stage like a posturing rooster, calling Paul Krugman a political hack. Paul Krugman’s a political hack? Surely they put make-up on Mr. Small Mouth. Doesn’t he look in the mirror? That’s where he’d see what a political hack looks like.”
