Morning Joe’s hosts Mika and Joe should know better than to lie and fake a post-Thanksgiving show…Mika even said: “Day after Thanksgiving… I’m stuffed”…The only thing is that the show was taped the day before Thanksgiving! This has to be the pinnacle of fake news…
“Joe didn’t notice. He ate the bag,” Willie Geist said.
Scarborough, still giggling, fired back, “It was good… the game last night made up for it.”
The show did not feature a disclaimer that it was pre-taped and the only noticeable difference to a normal, live version of the show is the disappearance of a subtle “live” graphic that is typically present. The scam continued throughout the remainder of the show when the hosts asked guests, such as MSNBC contributor Rick Tyler, about their Thanksgiving holidays.
The show obviously failed to mention any news that occurred after it taped on Wednesday, such as the deadly terrorist attack at a mosque in Egypt that killed more than 300 people. However, the network’s chyron and news ticker were updated with events that were actually occurring in real time.
A LONGTIME VIEWER BUSTED THEM:
“A longtime viewer of the program noticed that Friday’s edition had none of the usual discussion of breaking news and contacted The Washington Post to inquire if “Morning Joe” was presenting “fake news.” He said he was surprised to see Scarborough and Brzezinski appearing in a New York studio on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
“I was quite flabbergasted by the way they were so deceptive about this…especially when they are always so quick to castigate lying [or] deception they attribute to others,” said the viewer, who asked not to be identified.
Embarrassing stuff but these two might never acknowledge that they tried to pull one over on their viewers…They just don’t care.
