“Morning Joe” Making News
First let me say my weekday mornings start with Morning Joe. I really enjoy–and learn–from the assembled group who take on not only the headlines but tackle down into the issues and get to the ‘why’ of events.
This morning I posted on Facebook the very strong and vocal point Mika made about the absurdity of the Donald Trump campaign.
Mika on “Morning Joe” summed it up perfectly this morning concerning the Trump campaign. “We are just pretending to make up analysis of stupidity.” There is no seriousness to Trump or his campaign and it is a joke that thinking people try to make it seem real or somehow within reason by talking about it.
Now there is more news to report as Nielsen’s August ratings are out and show a significant upset in the cable news ratings wars. MSNBC trounced CNN in prime time (8-11pm) among both total viewers and the key demo of adults 25-54. (FAUX News’ prime time programming is actually down in both categories year to year)
But in the morning show battle Morning Joe handily beat New Day for the 18th consecutive month and, for the third month in a row, Morning Joe deliver the biggest total audience for the 6-9am time period in MSNBC’s 20 year history.
