On February 17 Mika Brzezinski spoke on the radio show she shares with Joe Scarborough of the headline on her interview with Leslie Stahl at WowoWow "Mika Brzezinski Tells Lesley Stahl: My Departure From CBS Was Pretty Ugly." Of the headline, Brzezinski said during the radio show: "I love CBS.(The firing) was an ugly process. But the headline? Oh, boy." Mika has not been shy about her break with CBS, but seemed to hint that the wording of "ugly" didn't quite capture what she wanted to say about her time at the eye network (although she did also use that word in the interview).
Also on the show, her father, former Carter administration National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, defended himself against Rush Limbaugh's recent radio attacks on his advocating of a voluntary national solidarity fund for people who benefited from the bubble to excess for disadvantaged Americans hurting economically.
Still later, fixed on the tantalizing headline, Mika Brzezinski added: "Ruh-oh, I'm in trouble, I'm in big trouble."
