Morning Joe


On his MSNBC show this morning, Joe Scarborough made it clear that he believes in global warming. But it didn't stop him from giving one of the oil-company-funded "lobbyists" against global warming a huge chunk of time on his show.

Here's a snippet from the guest: "Carbon dioxide: You call it pollution, we call it life."

The guest also used smokescreens -- such as a New York Times editorial from 30 years ago, which warned of an ice age -- as "proof" that the current talk about global warming is a bunch of hooey.

Huh? The Times editorial is not really evidence to disprove global warming, but it is what I'd call a smokescreen to deflect discussion of the real issue.

At least one person is watching MSNBC. That increased ratings dramatically.

The man is correct...carbon dioxide is life. Using that same logic, Dihydrogen Monoxide is an unregulated deadly substance that has been ignored for far too long.

In the end, you can twist anything whichever way you want. But truth is still truth, regardless of the spin.

THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLELY THE WORST MORNING SHOW EVER PUT ON
THE AIR. THE COMMENTATORS COULD NOT BE ANY MORE POLITICALLY
SKEWED TO THE LIBERAL LEFT THAN THAT OF BILL MAHER. WHAT EVER
HAPPENED TO THE BI-PARTISAN NEWS COVERAGE? I LITERALLY WANTED
TO VOMIT WHICHING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT IS TRULY AN
OUTRIGHT DISGRACE TO NBC PROGRAMMING AND THE ANCHOR'S SHOULD BE ASHAMED.

I think if Joe says one more time "Everybody agrees that we need to do the entitlements" ? I think about 35 percent want to maybe? I don't know any poor or middle class people who need to lose their benefits! Joe needs to get out and talk to real people more.
