MSNBC Anchor Says It's Media's Job “To Control Exactly What People Think”

posted on February 24, 2017

On Thursday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said it was the media’s job, not President Donald Trump’s, to “control exactly what people think.”

Co-host Joe Scarborough questioned his panel about why progressives were so alarmed by President Trump, saying, “He’s doing exactly what he said he’s going to do.”

Groping for words, Brzezinski replied, “I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he’s trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and, uh, the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control, uh, exactly what people think—and that is, that is our job.”

Brzezinski tried to walk back her embarrassing confession on Twitter, but a reading of the transcript shows that there can be no other interpretation. Brzezinski’s unguarded comment confirms the media arrogance that helped elect Trump.
