Joe Scarborough on Tuesday lashed out at journalists “who’ve already decided” conservative Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a “rapist” — saying they’re revealing their own partisan bias.
In remarks on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” the host — a frequent critic of President Donald Trump — blamed the mainstream media for blatant partisanship in the Kavanaugh controversy.
The remarks start at the 16:58 — minute mark.
“We’ve been harshly critical of Fox News for being in the tank and being state television,” Scarborough said.
“What we’ve seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a ‘D’ in front of the name of the so-called journalists that have already decided that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist.”
His co-host, Mika Brzezinksi, also declared the show “a smear-free zone.”
“There will be no convicting of either person on either side on this show,” she said. “Honestly, if there’s smearing of [Kavanaugh accusers] Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford or Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez or Brett Kavanaugh on this show, you will be kicked off this set because we’re not doing that. It’s just facts.”
Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault while Ramirez has accused him of sexual misconduct in incidents over three decades ago. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
