Joe Scarborough Schools Donny Deutsch on Media Ignoring Obama's Negative Ads in 2008: (read the whole thing)
"Morning Joe viewers Wednesday were treated to a truly marvelous demonstration of the media's hypocritical double standard concerning negative campaign ads ..."
Scarborough: "We've been using negative ads all week when attacking Mitt Romney, and when I brought up the simple fact that every objective outside reporter has stated that Barack Obama ran more negative 30-second ads than anybody in the history of American politics, suddenly it's, 'Oh, let's not call them negative ads.' Was that a coincidence?"
On a side note, I have to point out that Scarborough is routinely lampooned by conservative bloggers for being a RINO shill on MSNBC. Whether that's true or not, I have to give him credit for going to work every day in hostile territory. On the other hand, it does provide him with myriad opportunities to call out BS like this.
