Talk about the the pot calling the kettle black! This is just hilarious! The “fake news” newspaper, Washington Post calls out MSNBC for faking the Friday after Thanksgiving Show!
When is Morning Joe aired?
Typically, Morning Joe is aired live, five days a week. Instead of having a “fill-in” personality like most shows, Morning Joe went through an elaborate fake out. They pretended the show was being shot live on Friday. When in fact, it was actually taped on Wednesday for a Friday release. They took the small “Live” logo off the screen, and scrolled current news. Yet, failed to mention, in any form, that this was a pre-recorded show. H/T Fox News.
How the Washington Post got wind of the fake out:
The Washington Post reported that “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.”
The Fake Out:
To see the opening segment click here and go to MSNBC to watch the beginning of the show. If it is still available. The show opened and “the rest was cooked up to appear as if it was happening in real time. Brezinski opened the program by saying, “Day after Thanksgiving! Hoo! I’m stuffed.” The second segment picked up the after-holiday theme. “I always cook the turkey with the guts in it!” said Brzezinski. “Joe didn’t notice. He ate the bag,” quipped co-host Willie Geist, pretending that Scarborough had consumed Brzezinski’s theoretical turkey. “It was good!” said Scarborough.” as reported by the Washington Post.
The biggest tell tale sign was that they never mentioned the biggest news of the day, which was ‘deadly terrorist attack at a mosque in Egypt that killed more than 300 people” per Fox News. Mainly because, it had not happened yet!
The most amusing part of this is that Washington Post actually told on Mika and Joe, who are soon to be married. Back in May, Vanity Fair ran a piece saying the co-hosts are now engaged. Vanity Fair cited, “When the show debuted, both co-hosts were married. Scarborough to his second wife, whom he divorced in 2013, and Brzezinski to her former husband of 23 years.” Long engagement and there is no date set. And THAT is not fake news!
