Who’s the Real Morning Joe?

Here’s a look behind the scenes during Arianna Huffington‘s stint co-hosting CNBC’s Squawk Box alongside Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick and Joe Kernen.

CNBC_3.31.jpgAt the end of the 3-hour show, the conversation turned to the media and Huffington’s site with Quintanilla saying, “The knock against the aggregators is that they don’t help pay for journalism and journalism is expensive to produce.”

Huffington told them what she told us yesterday, that 30% of Huffington Post content is original, meaning 70% is from somewhere else. She then changed the subject to blogging and tried to get the Squawkers to work for her site, for free, no doubt. “I hope you’re going to blog, Joe, you must blog. Becky, you must blog.”

“Can I Tweet?” asked Kernen.

Huffington promised to be back on the show, “and I’ll bring more Greek cookies,” she said.
