As regular readers and all good Scissorheads know, I don’t watch Morning Joe (Squint and the Meatpuppet) for a wide variety of reasons, but mostly because I don’t want to encourage MSNBC to give even more airtime to this Republican Stooge and his yes men. And also because if I really want the Republican Talking Points of the day, I could go to the RNC website or even (gasp!) set my dial to Junkie Limbaugh.
So with that as background, I am grateful to the good bloggers who do pay attention to what Squint says/does. Steve M over at No More Mister Nice Blog has a post up in which we are alerted that Squint actually corrects the record of something that he initially let Vulgarmort get away with saying:

So Bravo to Squint!
But then Steve M notices that so much more was wrong and MSNBC Joe went back to carrying water for Trump. It’s a great read and it returns us to one of my favorite points: If the Corporate Media had as much integrity as the Left Blogtopia, Morning Joe would be off the air and Steve M. would have a media gig, or Driftglass, or even us (though ours would be much more likely to be some equivalent of the Gong Show, I suppose).
It’s just maddening that these inside-the-beltway buffoons will not correct the lies that their guests tell for fear of losing access.
Anyway, go read No More Mister Nice Guy. It’s a great piece of media criticism.
