Here comes the latest cable news feud. Fox News' Bob Beckel is ticked off at MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski because she has reportedly never heard of his show "The Five."
He was very offended, and took a swipe at Brzezinski on Tuesday's show. “Before we get into Tebow, I understand that Mika Brzezinski said that she didn’t know what ‘The Five’ was,” he began. "Let me tell you something, darling -- It's about 18 times bigger than the dumpy show you got."
He was still annoyed the next day because he called her out again, dissing her co-host Joe Scarborough and MSNBC in the process. He mispronounced her name when he said, "I'm still ticked off about this Mika, Micah -- what’s her name -- Brzezinski, the one whose father was National Security Adviser." He added, "Now I just find that really bothers me coming from MSNBC, who nobody knows what it is."
When co-host Dana Perino chimed in to say that Brzezinski's show was not "Morning Mika," Beckel said that he had never heard of "the other guy" -- Joe Scarborough.
Greg Gutfield jokingly corrected, "'Morning Joe.' I believe it is a medical condition."
"Joe Sauce-borough, is that it?" Beckel asked.
"The Five" debuted as a summertime replacement for Glenn Beck's show at 5 p.m. It averaged 1.407 million total viewers in the third quarter of 2011, and became a permanent part of Fox News' lineup in October.WATCH (starts at 6:38):
