Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe had some choice words for the New York Times on Tuesday morning. The newspaper ran a front page story about a possible second Chris Christie
bridge scandal instead of the more-important IRS investigation, according to Scarborough who openly questioned the New York Time’s news priorities.
He said: “Is it possible that the New York Times and Washington Post are not putting on the front page of their newspapers the fact that an internal investigation has been launched against the IRS on the most shady behavior, and yet they put the Pulaski sky bridge whatever on page A-1?” Scarborough asked. “This is garbage.”
He continued, “This really is a scam. This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. It’s why they don’t trust broadcast news. There’s a double standard and you can see it on every broadcast. You can see it on the front page of every major newspaper. This is why we don’t trust the national news outlets, because they are so biased and slanted. It’s not the news that they run, even though this is a joke of a story to put on the front page here. It’s the stories they don’t run. It’s the omissions, the acts of omissions when Democrats are in power. It’s stunning.”
The IRS story was on A19 of the Times.
