NBCer Insults Starbucks

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” may be “brewed by Starbucks” as the morning saying goes. But NBC’s Chuck Todd is irritated and lashing out at the company that feeds him and his colleagues. “Is it Starbucks company policy that their airport locations have to run inefficiently?” he asked on Twitter early this morning.  More importantly, what kind of a world are we living in where Todd ever has to wait for coffee?

Other journos swiftly agreed with the NBC correspondent.

Salon‘s Editor-at-Large Joan Walsh replied to Todd, saying, “Yes, it is. The Starbucks code of conduct requires airport locations to operate at half-speed.”

AP‘s Henry Jackson also concurred. He wrote, “Yes — and also rail station units.”

Starbucks and MSNBC formed an alliance and marketing relationship in June 2009.
