Cable news has been dominated by around-the-clock coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 this week.
And Morning Joe anchor Mika Brzezinski has had enough of it!
Earlier this week, she stopped her co-hosts in the middle of their report on the missing airliner to slam them for speculating on unfounded info and theories!
Oh em gee!
During a round table discussion, in which Joe Scarborough suggested the plane might actually be somewhere OTHER than the Indian Ocean, Mika interrupted and said:
“Can we go to news school for a second, please?! Everyone stop for a second! Because here’s what we’ve got at this point. It’s seventeen minutes past the hour. We shouldn’t be talking about theories. If you want to go to a network that has theories about Pakistan just blared across for hours and hours and hours, you’ve got many choices out there! But that’s actually capitalizing on a non-story for the sake of ratings!”
We think we know which network she’s talking about!
No, not her own MSNBC but her competitor, CNN!
The Cable News Network has been beating Morning Joe in the ratings BIG TIME since the disappearance of Flight 370. Their morning show, New Day, has beaten Mika and the gang for the past six consecutive days, probably because of the coverage they’re dedicating to the missing plane!
New Day host Chris Cuomo even admitted to offering more opinions than facts during their show! He explained:
“[We] have more questions than there are answers, because simply not enough is known. So if it seems like we’re nibbling around the edges, it’s because we are.”
No wonder Miz Brzezinski got so upset!
Ch-ch-check out the clip of Mika’s outburst (above)!
What do you think, Perezcious readers? Should morning shows stick to the known details or are anchors allowed to offer their opinions on unknown news stories?
