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.”
