Greta Van Susteren, Mika Brzezinski Argue On Twitter Over Morning Joe Criticism Of Fox News

Greta Van Susteren and Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski engaged in an unusual public argument on Tuesday over when its appropriate for a cable news personality to call out a competitor.

Their Twitter debate was triggered by comments about Fox News made by Brzezinskis Morning Joe co-host and husband Joe Scarborough earlier in the morning. Without naming names, Scarborough chided Sean Hannity for making discredited claims about Joe Biden and the whistleblower.

“News orgs and hosts need to stop talking about competitors as each news org has so many skeletons in their closets…They should focus on their own jobs and stop watching each other,” Van Susteren wrote on Twitter, linking to a Mediaite story on Scarboroughs comments.

Brzezinski replied, “Actually the truth matters. It may not to you. There are those using their platforms to promulgate the Presidents lies. You know that. We will recognize it and condemn it when it happens. You may not care about the truth. We do.”

Van Susteren responded, “Do you really believe – even for one second – that I dont care about thRead More – Source
