MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed the mainstream media Monday on “Morning Joe” for fawning over North Korea at the Winter Olympics, calling the scene “bizarre.”
Scarborough was interviewing president of The Council on Foreign Relations Richard Haass about the prospect of peace with North Korea and compared the media’s reaction to screaming teenagers at a Beatles concert.
“Let me ask you your response. Other than certain members of the national media treating the North Koreans arriving in South Korea much like the press and screaming teenage girls treated the Beatles landing at JFK 53 years ago — it was bizarre — but other than that bizarre positive reaction to the North Koreans, what was your take on what happened this past weekend between the north and the south? Reason for hope,” Scarborough asked.
The Media Research Center assembled a list of tweets and articles from outlets like The Washington Post, The New York Times and CNN, outlets that showed glowing praise for North Korea — including one article that compared Kim Jong-un’s sister to Ivanka Trump.
One headline for CNN read: “North Korea Is Winning The Olympics –And It’s Not Because of Sports,” while The New York Times piece read: “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns on the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight.”
