Greta Van Susteren on Meet the Press Changes: ‘What About Mika Brzezinski?’

Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren weighed in today on the reported changes coming to Meet the Press, questioning whether NBC is waging a “war on women.”

NBC’s Chuck Todd takes over as moderator of Meet the Press on Sunday. It was announced this week that the regular panel on the show will now include his colleagues Luke Russert and now Joe Scarborough. Scarborough co-hosts his MSNBC program Morning Joe with Mika Brzezinski.

“My first thought: What about Mika Brzezinski?” Van Susteren wrote on her Gretawire blog. “She co-hosts Scarborough’s morning show on their cable network — why isn’t she included in this? Why did she get skipped over? They (NBC) can add a chair to the set.”

Before Todd was announced as the show’s new moderator, replacing David Gregory, it was rumored Scarborough and Brzezinski were jockeying to take over.
