I’ve long admitted I watch Morning Joe fairly regularly. The tone is typically better-suited to mornings, and it’s mostly news-junkie stuff without the viral videos and “you won’t believe what this mom posted on Facebook” stories.
Until recently at least, I found it particularly useful to watch because Joe Scarborough — a normally affable and entertaining guy — is to the right of the conventional wisdom, which forces most of his conventionally liberal guests to compensate by digging a little deeper to defend their CW thinking. The result is that you get a better understanding of liberal MSM conventional wisdom than you would if they all just spouted their talking points and left it at that.
But I increasingly find the show unwatchable.
