“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski claimed on Friday that the Clinton campaign previously called NBC directly and attempted to have her “pulled off the air” after she criticized the campaign’s “arrogance.”
“I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance. They needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over,” Brzezinski said.Image Credit: MSNBC
She then just came out with her claim:
“I’ll just say it — NBC got a call from the campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air. I mean, think about that. That’s just shooting the wrong messenger.”
Brzezinski’s co-host, Joe Scarborough, argued there were also people close to the campaign who were also “shut out” when they tried to raise serious concerns about the campaign’s strategy.
“And here we are,” Brzezinski responded.
