When this NewsBuster began preparing today's item, the focus was going to be on Joe Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe that "90% of the people in our business vote for Democrats and Democratic primaries." Not that it was something we didn't already know [though query whether even 10% of leading MSMers are Republicans], but nice to hear it openly stated.
But preparing the video clip, something more stunning emerged. Scarborough actually suggested that the problem of biased debate moderators is something new. Said Scarborough: "this is sort of the cable-news culture, the prime-time cable news culture, seeping into our presidential debates. This is not something we've had a problem with in the past." Say what? Do the names George Stephanopoulos and Candy Crowley ring a bell, Joe, just to cite two examples of outrageous moderator bias from recent election cycles?
