‘Do Your Job’: Scarborough Goes on Twitter Tirade After Media Critic Calls Him Trump Supporter


Joe-Scarborough-e1438345122486MSNBC host Joe Scarborough went off on media critic and New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen on Twitter Tuesday after Rosen claimed that Scarborough was biased in favor of Donald Trump.

It all began after Rosen posted a tweet about an open letter from Huffington Post journalists asking voters not to vote for Trump. In response to a question from The Deseret NewsHerb Scribner, he said he has no problem with outlets taking different approaches to Trump so long as they were upfront, and cited Scarborough as someone who denied his bias.

Unsurprisingly, Scarborough did not care for that characterization one bit.

The Indianapolis Star‘s Mary Beth Schneider jumped in to tell Scarborough to just let it go, but he was having none of that.

Rosen then pointed out that Scarborough’s confessed friendship with Trump was exactly the problem. But Scarborough rejected that argument, saying Rosen just didn’t like Trump.
