Joe Scarborough Asks How 9-Year-Old with Uzi at Range Killed Man

Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 10.14.53Yesterday at an Arizona shooting range, a 9-year-old lost control of an Uzi, subsequently killing a 39-year-old instructor, Charles Vacca.

Today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough went off on how this even happened.

“A man is dead and they’ve ruined a little girl’s life,” Scarborough passionately stated. “I say this as a father of an eleven year old girl. Who would put an uzi in the hands of a nine-year-old girl? What is wrong with these people? What is wrong with this culture?…What right is advanced by doing that?” Read more

WaPo’s Wesley Lowery Responds to Joe Scarborough’s Criticism on CNN

MSNBCNNFergusonThis morning on CNN, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery, who was arrested, assaulted and released without charges, paperwork or the names of the arresting officers last night in Ferguson, Mo. with HuffPost’s Ryan Reilly, addressed comments made by Joe Scarborough today on “Morning Joe.”

Scarborough said, “I’ve been in places where police officers said, ‘All right. You know what? This is cordoned off. You guys need to move along.’ You know what I do? I go, ‘Yes, sir,’ or ‘Yes, ma’am.’ I don’t sit there and have a debate and film the police officer unless I want to get on TV and have people talk about me the next day.”

Lowery began by encouraging Scarborough to “get out of 30 Rock where he’s sitting there sipping his Starbucks smugly” and “do some reporting on the ground.”

NBC Sources Tell Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove ‘Gregory is Toast’

Gregory_1.22Yesterday, the New York Post’s “Page Six” reported that David Gregory‘s tenure as host of NBC’s “Meet the Press” may soon be coming to an end.

The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove wrote in a follow-up piece that, “In multiple conversations that I had with people inside and outside NBC after the item appeared, it was taken as a given that Gregory is toast.”

Grove’s analysis differs dramatically compared to what an NBC spokesperson told “Page Six’s” Emily Smith Tuesday night, saying, “We heard the same false rumors and suggest you take them with a grain of salt, as we did.” Read more

Final Ratings for NBC’s Snowden Special In, Rep. Pete King Calls Interview an “Infomercial”

WilliamsSnowden-1024x576The final numbers are in for last night’s interview of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden by NBC News’ Brian Williams. Early numbers for “Inside The Mind of Edward Snowden” were released this morning and as of last hour, the final Nielsen report is out.

The NBC special averaged 5.948 million total viewers. It was ranked #1 among the broadcast networks during the hour in all 18-49 demo ratings (tied with CBS in W18-49) and M/A25-54. During the 10pm hour, CBS aired a repeat of “CSI.”

And in case you missed it, Joe Scarborough asked Rep. Pete King (R-NY) on today’s “Morning Joe” whether Snowden deserves any leniency. King referred to Snowden’s claims as a “myth.”

“Unfortunately, Brian Williams almost added to that last night, basically giving him an infomercial,” said Rep. King. “I really wish Brian Williams would have gone after him, and asked him if he had one piece of evidence that shows that the NSA has violated the law in any way.”
