Joe Scarborough Reveals MSNBC Newsroom Booed Bush Speech

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough revealed Thursday morning that on his first day at MSNBC, on the night of President Bush’s 2003 State of the Union address, “people in the newsroom…were booing the President basically from the beginning to the end.”

A couple of minutes into his Morning Joe show, Scarborough praised the Executive Editor of the Seattle Times for scolding his staff for applauding Karl Rove’s resignation.

Scarborough then recalled: “My first night here at MSNBC was the President’s State of the Union address in 2003, and I was shocked because there were actually people in the newsroom that were booing the President basically from the beginning to the end.”

In doing so, they were just following the tradition set in 2000 when those at the NBC News flagship were on election night 2000 openly, according the then-General Electric Chairman Jack Welch, “all cheering for Gore.” AUDIO&VIDEO See & Hear the Bias - Audio & Video Clip Archive
