Morning Joe Calls Out Fox's 'Outnumbered' For Khashoggi Smears

Good on Morning Joe for showing a clip of Fox's 'Outnumbered' for using "some people say" to enhance right-wing smears against the murdered journalist.
Views:

All too often, the mainstream cable news networks treat Fox News with kid gloves. "There are some very fine people who work there" "our colleagues at Fox News" baloney.

So it's refreshing to see Morning Joe actually use a CLIP from "Outnumbered" and call out Harris Faulkner's words while at the same time showing her saying them. Because what she did was atrocious -- saying she was just "putting it out there" that "some people say" (a Fox favorite for pushing right-wing conspiracies) that murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi was possibly affiliated with (insert bad Arab boogie man terrorist organization here).

Mika called out by name the Faulkner line, "just putting it out there" as a complete lie and terribly irresponsible.

You'd think Mika was auditioning for a writing post at Crooks and Liars because we also ran a clip and called Faulkner out earlier. Sorry, Mika, this blog is full. (HA!)

They ALWAYS are, Joe and Mika. Thanks for pointing that out today.

And Joe? We haven't forgotten your Standing-O for Trump in 2017...

...or the 2016 Crookie Award we gave your show for hosting monthly (!) call-in interviews for Mr. "Donald's Got His Groove Back" throughout the 2016 campaign.
