“Morning Joe” part of state run media?

I was never a fan of Joe Scarborough's show. Truth be told I never waste my valuable time tuning in to MSNBC’s BS. The only time I ever tune in is when one of my lefty friends requests it.  Well if ever there was a reason not to tune in this might be it.

During his syndicated radio show Friday, libtalker and MSNBC host Ed Schultz relayed to listeners how he observed 'Morning Joe' Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski take feedback directly from the White House during their program last week.
Schultz appeared on Thursday's Morning Joe and directly challenged Obama's David Axelrod on the current version of the health care bill under consideration in Congress. Interestingly, this particular segment has since generated a great deal of attention elsewhere, given the defensive nature of the White House advisorand the supposed conflict between the far left and the administration: 

Here is the Morning Joe segment in question: 

I would put this in the VERY plausible category. Both Olbermann and Maddows have been invited to the White House and tingly Chris Matthews already said it was his job to make Obama succeed. So why not have Joe Scarborough doing the administration’s bidding as well? Come to think of it, Joe did write that foolish book about the GOP needing to move to the middle.

I have mixed feelings about Joe. Some of what he says makes sense. There was a big to-do in the DC area about him. The local talk radio station took of a staunch conservative which is a local show (Chris Plant, don't know if you are aware of him) and replaced him with Joe and Mika. People down here went crazy with boycotts and letter writing campaigns.

I would listen to his radio show on ocassion, I didn't hate it nor did I love it. He did have some good guests. Recently they went back to Chris Plant. Who I agree with most of the time.

If working for MSNBC is the only job you can get, it doesn't say much for your skill set.
