Twitter Skirmish With Joe Scarborough Gets Political Blogger Banned From MSNBC

Jul 8, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, has decided not to allow the founder of liberal political blog Daily Kos to appear on the network following a skirmish between the blogger and "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, reports TVNewser.

Scarborough has been ticked off by Tweets made by Markos Moulitsas regarding the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a former staffer.

Griffin e-mailed Moulitsas, saying of the banning, "I’m hoping this will be only temporary and that the situation can be resolved in a mature fashion, but until then I just don’t know how one could reasonably expect to be welcomed onto our network while publicly antagonizing one of our hosts at the same time."


  1. Children, children.

  2. I think Phil Griffin, and Joe Scarborough, have a lot of nerve to get together to defy the 1st Ammendment, and ban a journalist from appearing on MSNBC, just because the journalist referred to a factual incident in Scarborough’s past.
    I thought MSNBC, Joe Scarborough and Phil Griffin believed in freedom of speech, but apparently not.
    When someone mentions the intern found dead in Joe Scarborough’s Congressional office, suddenly the 1st Ammendment and
    Freedom of Speech are thrown out the window at MSNBC with Joe and Phil.
