From TV to Politics: Who’s in the Running?

HuckabeeScarborough‘Tis the season for a lot talk about who may or may not be running for political office.

  • CNBC’s Larry Kudlow told Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg yesterday that he has no desire to run for office. “I love my work. I love my TV show. I love my radio show … You want put me in the Senate?,” Kudlow joked. “Why would you do that to me? I thought you were my pal,”
  • Meanwhile, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, a former Florida congressman, isn’t shutting the door on a campaign run. Last month he told “Fox & Friends” he’s staying put in TV, at least for another 8 years, until his youngest daughter finishes school.

CNN’s John King on Obama/Conan Plug: “Way Over the Line”

CNN’s John King went on Steve Malzberg‘s radio show today. Malzberg, often a guest on cable news, asked King whether he would have done what NBC’s Brian Williams did the other day — use interview time for a late night comedy bit.

Malzberg: You’re sitting down with the President. You have unlimited access, or, or great access to him like Brian Williams had the other day. Do you then ask him to do a promo for an upcoming CNN show the way they did for the Conan O’Brien show? Is that appropriate?

King: The answer on that would be no. No. Never. No.

Malzberg: Okay, well that’s simple. To the point. Boom, boom, boom. I love it. Hey, John…

King: It’s my school of journalism, it may not be everyone else’s school of journalism, but it’s my school of journalism is that I interview all these guys with respect. I respect the office, I respect the people, I respect anybody that puts themselves out there like that. But, I, you know, I need to protect myself and my integrity and my credibility, and the President of the United States, you know, God bless him, God bless the one before him, and God bless the next 200 to come. I’m not going to ask them for an endorsement or a product endorsement. I think that’s way over the line.

Just before 6:30amET, conservative radio host Steve Malzberg and liberal radio host Ed Schultz argued over small-businesses and tax plans. As the disagreement got heated, Kilmeade asked a quick question, and Schultz, who was live via remote, was off.

“I think he wants to be on YouTube,” joked co-host Gretchen Carlson.
