The Answer to Ed Driscoll's DNC Morning Joe Question

There was a throw away line in this piece at Instapun­dit con­cern­ing Deb­bie Wasser­man Schultz’s and wik­ileaks that jumped out at me:

What is it with the DNC and their strange stalker-​like obses­sion with Morn­ing Joe any­how? Here’s video of the Obama admin­is­tra­tion email­ing the show and one of Joe’s distaff co-​hosts (pos­si­bly Savan­nah Guthrie) read­ing on the air a White House “cor­rec­tion” to their cov­er­age back in Octo­ber of 2009. That was also around the time “a ‘senior White House offi­cial’sent an email call­ing Joe Scar­bor­ough an ‘ass­hole’ for mock­ing Pres. Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.”

And you thought Trump couldn’t han­dle criticism!

While these days my work/​prayer sched­ule pre­vents me from watch­ing the answer is actu­ally pretty obvi­ous to any­one who has watched the show.

Morn­ing Joe has two things that no other MSNBC show has

A Repub­li­can host who while occa­sion­ally going off the reser­va­tion and not a big fan of Tea Party types pro­vides a reli­able con­ser­v­a­tive view­point on basic issues that as a rule MSNBC view­ers are never exposed to.

A Demo­c­rat co-​host who while a par­ti­san Demo­c­rat is hon­est and cares about her rep­u­ta­tion enough not to lie to the view­ers sim­ply for the sake of the party and is will­ing to ques­tion things that smell to her.

Even worse when a Tea Party con­ser­v­a­tive shows up on the show, they are treated fairly and not as a rule dis­missed as some kind of loony

It’s one thing to dis­miss Fox or GOP activists or even blog­gers it’s another to dis­miss some­thing when the MSNBC dri­ve­time show talks about some­thing as legit.

For the Democ­rats that makes them dangerous.

That’s why I think con­ser­v­a­tives should invest time in the show an cul­ti­vate both Joe and Mika, it’s their eas­i­est entre to intro­duce news that the MSM wants to sup­presses into the stream out­side of Fox.

While these days my work/prayer schedule prevents me from watching the answer is actually pretty obvious to anyone who has watched the show.

Morning Joe has two things that no other MSNBC show has

 A Republican host who while occasionally going off the reservation and not a big fan of Tea Party types provides a reliable conservative viewpoint on basic issues that as a rule MSNBC viewers are never exposed to. 

A Democrat co-host who while a partisan Democrat is honest and cares about her reputation enough not to lie to the viewers simply for the sake of the party and is willing to question things that smell to her.

Even worse when a Tea Party conservative shows up on the show, they are treated fairly and not as a rule dismissed as some kind of loony

It’s one thing to dismiss Fox or GOP activists or even bloggers it’s another to dismiss something when the MSNBC drivetime show talks about something as legit.

For the Democrats that makes them dangerous.

That’s why I think conservatives should invest time in the show an cultivate both Joe and Mika, it’s their easiest entre to introduce news that the MSM wants to suppresses into the stream outside of Fox.
