Marta can't stand him. She commented his devils advocate role could convince some people he is right.

19. I'm with you.

If people stopped watching him, then his ratings would go down. Remember Lori Klausutis.

3. I don't know why folks here hate his show so much ..

I find it lot more tolerable than anything on fox - even thought Joe Scab is pretty partisan ... but I can still manage to see it without getting upset

for example- I get ulcers if I see 2 minutes of that fucking shitbag Hannity ....

12. I don't

 

like him because he was one of the ex-Politicians that wanted to impeach President Clinton. He is nothing but a hack, hired by NBC. He is not like Maddow or Ed. At least they do make sense and criticise all politicians with consistancy. Scarborough most of the time spits out propaganda and makes no sense on tax cuts or spending. He is an instigator. He is just another prop for Wall Street. Another reason is he claims the President doesn't have any mandate, which disenfranchises my vote. Every time he makes that claim infuriates me. Just who the hell is he? The President needs to respect the voters and not listen to stupid pundits for Wall Street and their agendas. NBC need to put people that solve real issues on instead of these Wall Street Goons. And they are no better than Norquist! Scarborough should let the President govern the country and shutup or run for office himself.

27. You are saying "I don't understand why so many people don't like getting hit in the head"

"It feels so much better than getting hit in the junk".

Being less shitty is still shitty.

7. and Mika needs to go with him. And Gene Robinson too.

I enjoy Robinson's WaPo columns, but he isn't an articulate spokesman for the left on TV. He stumbles and grins when lies are being told and gently pushes back sometimes. Can't tell if its because he stammers, or if he is intimidated by the assholes. He does better when he's on the evening Msnbc shows.

This morning was another rehash of why Romney lost and developing a strategy to stick it to Obama on the fiscal cliff. Hate these fuckers so very much.

18. Yes, Robinson has a speech impediment, but no, he's not intimidated by anyone....

....much less right-wingers who will never be his Pulitzer winning intellectual equal.

Try actually listening to him sometime instead of focusing on his speech patterns.

10. Maybe if the complainers stopped watching him...

...his ratings might drop low enough to get him canceled? How much of his audience is liberals who watch him so they can have something to bitch about?

13. Well, maybe

 

we should demand his dismissal and put a real professional on? Just what is his job anyway, and why was he hired? Was it to spit out his right wing propaganda? And his whole right wing Wall street propaganda this morning was that skilled American workers should take less pay for jobs. This idiot, forgets about the profits. We got an answer for that too. Tax the hell out of people with Swiss Bank accounts and outsourcing American technology and jobs. Anybody can be replaced. Maybe the American government shouldn't do business with these corporations either. There are a lot of other people that want opportunities to start businesses. And those people owning corporations, don't have the market cornered on knowledge and technology. They probably stole most of it from somewhere else.

And here is one example, BET use to be a Black owned business but it was sold. So the idea was monopolized so other people can make money from this demographic. What creates jobs is supply and demand. Ideas and innovation also comes from the grass roots. That needs to be made clear to those on Wall Street. They have been lucky to work in the United States at all because this countries' Policies have produced the most Billionaires and millionaires than any country in the World. And it isn't even close! For any of these people to suggest the U.S. has draconian economic Policies is ridiculous. The data doesn't back that up. These people are just selfish and greedy.

15. It's all about ratings.

TV networks base their programming on the number of people watching. They aren't going to take a program off the air when the people who complain about it are STILL WATCHING IT in large numbers. Scarborough was hired to counter the allegations that MSNBC is a left wing station. So, yes, spitting out his right wing propaganda is why he has his show. As long as he gets good ratings, you can "demand" his removal until you are green in the face. If you don't like what he's saying, stop watching.

21. I agree

Years ago I heard this explained. They don't care when they get angry email, as long as you keep watching. It's when no one watches and the emails stop that gets to them. They don't care if the viewers love them or hate them as long as they keep coming back.

A certain percentage love him and tune in to hear what he'll say next. And a certain percentage hate him and tune in to hear what he'll say next.

.. several times. The results have been about as productive as watching that crap show. So now, I just open these Morning Joe bitch threads for chuckles. Some people just gotta make themselves go thru the day pissed off, I guess.

16. There's another option not included.

Don't watch him.

I see no reason why they'd need to fire him. I just wish DU and other "lliberals" would stop watching him. And definitely stop posting about him and what he says as though any of it matters.

22. Stop giving them ratings and no, you are not doing "opposition research"

The TeaPubliKlans have had the same agenda for decades, if you don't know their positions and mode of operation by now then you may never "get it" and the daily ratings give away to the right wing of the "centrist", pro-corporate party is not going to help at all.

You watch because you like beltway babble, even if it is a bit more right wing than you absolutely prefer.

23. I stopped with the Scabs about six months ago, and oddly, have somewhat reverted to sLimus

I still detest sLimus from when I first heard of him, when he slaughtered CLINTON at the WH Correspondents' dinner, and gloried when he was dumped with disgrace and the Scabs took over, and peppered the Scabs circus with blistering e-mails for the first couple of years (you could see BUCHANAN and BARNICLE wincing on the air when they were notified of the e-mails).

Then the Scabs thing just got boring with the endless rehashing, and in the past year they started literally re-running tape of the first hour in the 3rd hour.

A couple of months ago I peeked into the sLimus circus and the key word is VARIETY. He will always be the jerk he is but he's a wiley snake and he plays with his elite guests to make them squirm. At least for now, he makes Scabs look boring.

I'd love to see him canned, but he's got too many viewers, so I don't see it happening.

why would you like to fire a man whose views you happen to disagree with ..

This is not like going after Rush Limbaugh -- who definitely needed to be fired after what he did to that poor girl.
