MFNBC

I like “Morning Joe.” And I like Joe Scarborough. Never a dull moment with him in the mix.

Like this morning. He said the word “fuck” on the air.

A mistake like that used to be a career-destroyer. Today, it has made Joe Scarborough a YouTube sensation.

Watch the top clip below, with Scarborough discussing future White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. The reactions are priceless!

Scarborough isn’t the first MSNBC star to drop the F-bomb on live television. Check out the bottom clip from 2007. It’s Chris Matthews via telephone on “Imus in the Morning.”

I like the part about him not knowing what he said 30 seconds earlier.

One more reason I have such a resounding faith in what I hear on cable news :)

"Honey!"....., rotflmbao.

Dunno why, but I love me some Mika B.

^ I don't know why either, Craig.

Actually, she's starting to grow on me. But for the longest, I thought she was out of sync with Joe. The rhythm was just off.

He must say that word a lot.

Scarborough is one of the few conservative voices I can stand. He's not totally unreasonable like a lot of them.

No kidding he must say that word a lot! It came trippingly off his toungue like he says it all the time.

I have the same problem.

Scarborough didn't flinch. :-)

Sue Simmons of WNBC in NYC dropped the best F-bomb I ever heard during a news program. Don't know if it was directed at her co-anchor Chuck Scarborough or not.

Homegirl had to apologize after the break. Video

^ Classic, Bklyn6! I remember Sue Simmons during her early years on Channel 4 in D.C.

bklyn6 said...

^Gosh! That must've a long time ago, because I remember when she first came to Ch. 4 in NYC and that had to be at least 25 years ago, if not more.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Yep. Black folks were going for theirs in the 1970s D.C. local news market.

Also, Bklyn6, I'm wanting to say that Sue Simmons rocked the Afro hairdo at WRC. But I need some D.C. people to back me up on that, or else correct me.

bklyn6 said...

^Oh, I TOTALLY believe you, UBM. One night last week Sue rocked a curly 'fro. (It reminded me of that Michelle Obama afro on the cover of "The New Yorker," fo' real.) I was surprised! It was so anachronistic. I wish I could find a picture.
