Hugh Hewitt is a man that knows a lot about the issues at hand, but unfortunately can't separate those issues from his hackery. Always content to play a GOP shill, he joined the Morning Joe crew earlier today and tried to peddle his bogus media bias theory against Ben Carson that he used on MTP yesterday. He blathered on about how the media is ignoring Hillary Clinton's (supposed) impending arrest over another silly email scandal while attacking those who dare to vet Ben Carson's autobiography.
Hillary Clinton gets more scrutiny from the mainstream press than probably all the Republican candidates combined, (that's conjecture on my part) but that doesn't stop shills from lying about those facts.
The Scar would have none of it and lambasted Hugh for being an embarrassment, who's only interest is to impress the extreme GOP base of voters, instead of being honest about the issues surrounding the Republican candidates they are trying to choose for the presidency.
During a heated discussion with Hugh Hewitt, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough discussed how conservative media has sided Ben Carson amid his recent slams against liberal media bias.
When Hewitt argued that the media shouldn’t be “knifing” GOP candidates while ignoring issues like Hillary Clinton‘s email scandal, Scarborough retorted that he and other media outlets have been digging into her controversies for months, whereas the controversy over Carson’s West Point story has only blown up for a few days so far.
After Hewitt made reference to “You Manhattan people” who take pleasure in criticizing Carson more than Clinton, Scarborough shot back, “I put my neck on the line every single day here. Hugh, please don’t embarrass yourself… you owe me an apology on the air right now because you know better than to say that about me.”“The mainstream media will not cover Hillary’s problems,” Hewitt responded, which sent Scarborough into a fit of disbelief.
“If your only argument is that the media is covering Ben Carson for a day and a half but they haven’t covered Hillary Clinton’s problems long enough, that is not a very strong argument,” Scarborough said. “If you’re interested in impressing the Republican base and not winning the presidency, then keep that up. This is about finding out who the strongest Republican candidate is.”
I posted the entire video of the two because the longer it goes, the more heated it becomes.
