"Wow" Reid mocks 'Morning Joe' interview of Kochs [View all]

Joe Scarborough responds that the Senate minority leader is 'blinded by hatred.'

As he launched his anti-Koch broadside, Reid read excerpts of the brothers’ “Morning Joe” interview on the Senate floor -- including Scarborough’s inquiry on whether the Kochs got their “graciousness” in philanthropy from their mother, or Brzezinski asking them who was the better brother.

The "Morning Joe" hosts did press the Kochs on more substantive issues, such as whether it was fair for a relatively small number of wealthy families to have contributed an overwhelming amount of the campaign cash in the 2016 race, according to a recent New York Times report. Still, Reid noted: “Sometimes, most of the time there weren’t even questions. There were just compliments.”

“Wow. Those were some really tough questions asked by the host of “Morning Joe.” That’s sufficient journalism,” Reid said Wednesday morning from the Senate floor. “Those questions are so easy, they may even qualify them to moderate the next Republican presidential debate.”

“We should be working to rid the system of the Koch brothers’ dark money, but this cannot and will not happen if reporters and journalists refuse to ask Charles and David Koch questions, maybe even probing questions,” Reid said. “Otherwise, no one is holding these two oil barons accountable for their nefarious actions."
