For several days, I'd been watching the media pundits salivate over last week's poll results, in which Donald Trump rated 16 points better than Hillary Clinton in a question asking which one was "better" at "being honest and straightforward."
I couldn't watch much more at that point because laziness is the Morning Joe style though they act as if they're sharp. They don't really press anyone hard, which is cowardly and shameful. Are they really afraid guests will refuse to come back on the show if they ask probing questions?
Mika Brzezinski is an absolute who remains the center of common decency in the middle of the politically nuclear destruction of communication and debate. And without her this week I felt as if I too would be sucked into that hopeless abyss.
