It’s hardly just a “vast right-wing conspiracy” that was criticizing Hillary Clinton during her campaign. While the overwhelming majority of those in the mainstream media were in the tank for Hillary, there was one show on MSNBC of all places that dared criticize her. MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ is hosted by former Republican representative Joe Scarborough, with Democrat co-host Mika Brzezinski to balance the show out. The show wasn’t necessarily “pro-Trump” either; they just dared to actually criticize Hillary.
As it turns out, Hillary wasn’t happy that a network like MSNBC — clearly in the tank for her as a whole — would dare have individual voices who dare criticize her.
Via Fox News:
During Friday’s episode of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski claimed that while Clinton and Donald Trump were battling for the White House, the Clinton campaign attempted to get her “pulled off the air.” Brzezinski said the incident took place after she hinted that Clinton didn’t have the presidential election in the bag as many thought.
“I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance. They needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over,” Brzezinski recalled on Friday. “I’ll just say it: NBC got a call from the [Clinton] campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air.”
Brzezinski expressed her shock at the alleged reaction from the Democratic nominee’s camp.
Well, it turns out, Brzezinski was right: Hillary really didn’t have the presidential election in the bag as many thought. Fortunately, it was Clinton who didn’t get the job, while Brzezinski kept hers.
