Joe Scarborough Now Sparring With All Of MSNBC
Holy, holy crap. If you thought last night's blow up between Joe Scarborough and Chris Matthews/Keith Olbermann was explosive, you didn't see today's Morning Joe, where Scarborough all but tore into his colleage David Shuster. While Mika B. unsuccessfully played referee, Joe and David's sparring over John McCain (around the 4:00 mark) only hinted at a deeper disconnect: The two guys hate each other. Read into Joe's complaining about David "sleeping through" and skipping three recent Morning Joe appearances as you will, but according to one control room source, "producers couldn't believe it. Some know these two don't get along, but it was awkward even for us. I watched [the clip back] later and it was even worse the second time."
Of course, this is just a long list of internal MSNBC feuding. Scarborough has aimed his ire at Keith Olbermann (later excused as an attack on Anderson Cooper, though nobody believed it). And more interesting, Scarborough appeared excited when he turned to David Gregory on remote — since these two hate each other as well.
