"Morning Joe" an Eye Opener in the AM

Monday, March 29, 2010

"Morning Joe", hosted by Joe Scarborough, former Republican member of the House of Representatives, has pushed ahead of CNN's "American Morning" according to recent ratings.


According to an article by David Hinkley of the New York Daily News, Scarborough's radio show is also beating out Glenn Beck on WOR (710 AM), 10 a.m.-noon and has been for months.

Of course, Scarborough can't make a dent in Fox's one million viewers, but Scarborough is appealing not only because he is more of a moderate Republican, but issues are discussed respectfully, without the inflammatory rhetoric. In Scarborough's own words, "His goal from the start, he says, was to show a conversation, "not people standing up waving their arms and shouting."


Typically, MSNBC features all Democratic views; but Scarborough provides the balance, a window into the other side that is palatable, entertaining and even educational. Joe's cohost is Mika Brzezinski and her father, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor and a foreign policy expert, is a frequent guest and offers insightful observations into foreign affairs.


"Our goal is to present hard news and conversations on policy in a civilized manner," says the conservative Scarborough. ". He admits there are more liberal guests than conservatives because he wants to present both sides, not just have someone who agrees with him.


Tired of your friends at Fox. Have your morning cup with Joe.

I totally agree! Joe keeps his wits about him and directs civil, intelligent discourse about the issues facing us today. AND he does it without finger-pointing and hysterics. What a nice change of pace!
