Reagan Brothers Crowd Cable News

A few hours after Michael Reagan, son of Pres. Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman, was on Fox News Channel Tuesday, his half brother Ron Reagan was on MSNBC. Both Reagan brothers were talking politics and, in the case of the Fox News segment, the media’s coverage of politics.

Michael Reagan and Scott Rasmussen were guests on Megyn Kelly‘s show. At one point, Kelly showed a CNBC clip of NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd seeming to take a shot at less-than-reliable polling, like Rasmussen’s, pointing out how much NBC News (and partner The Wall Street Journal) pay for their polling. While Kelly noted the historical accuracy of Rasmussen’s polling, he laughed off the criticism: “It’s part of the life of being a pollster,” he said. Reagan added, tongue in cheek, “Don’t ask me about the Reagans. Boy, they never say anything mean about us!”

An MSNBC analyst and former show host, Ron Regan is a regular on “Hardball” and other shows. Michael Reagan has been upping his appearances on Fox News, having guested more frequently on Kelly’s show as well as “Your World” and FNC’s weekend shows.

Following Tweet, Calls for an Apology from Fox News analyst Monica Crowley Update: Apology Tweeted

There are demands for an apology from Fox News analyst Monica Crowley after she sent this Tweet Thursday just after 1pmET:

Crowley followed up with, “I love exposing the Left’s total lack of a sense of humor.” By 2:30, the term #CrowleyJokes was a top trending topic on Twitter.

But Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who got an apology from Rush Limbaugh after he called her a “slut” on his radio show, didn’t find it funny. And she isn’t asking for an apology from Crowley. But she says Crowley does owe an apology to the LGBT community for a Tweet that was “homophobic and offensive.” (Video after the jump)

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz‘s ended his show last night talking with Fluke about it. “It’s certainly not a way I wanted my engagement be treated,” said Fluke, who got engaged to her boyfriend of 8 years. “What really bothers me about is the blatant homophobia in the statement.”

Crowley has been with Fox News on and off since the network launched. In 2004 she co-hosted a show on MSNBC called “Connected: Coast to Coast” with on Ron Reagan.

> Update: This afternoon, Crowley apologized on Twitter:

Joe Scarborough in 2012? Ron Reagan says ‘Why Not?’

Ron Reagan has been making the rounds the past couple weeks selling his new book, My Father at 100. The presidential son and former MSNBC host — remember such hits as “Connected: Coast to Coast” with Monica Crowley and “After Hours” with Joe Scarborough? — talked with WHC Insider’s Tammy Haddad on Politico.com. Haddad asked Reagan if his former MSNBC colleague Scarborough should run in 2012. “Sure,” said Reagan with halting confidence. “He’d be the only Republican candidate not on FOX I think, instead over on MSNBC,” says Reagan. “Joe’s got some good qualities and he could spice up a debate pretty well.”

Joe Scarborough and Ron Reagan hosted the late-night show "After Hours" on MSNBC during the 2004 RNC & DNC. Here with guest, the late Ron Silver.
