Ever since the Ray Rice elevator video went public, Morning Joe has been in a state of sustained moral outrage over the NFL's mishandling of the issue of domestic violence. All well and good. But things turned testy this morning when a New York Times reporter turned the tables on Joe and Mika. Allen Schwarz asked if they should march into the office of the NBC Chairman and demand that the network stop supporting the NFL by broadcasting its Sunday night games.
After first jokingly suggesting that the camera on Schwarz be turned off, Scarborough got seriously snippy. When Schwarz didn't hear Scarborough say "right" in agreement with something the reporter said, Scarborough responded "I said right. It means I'm agreeing with you. You don't have to be so defensive. You can just relax." Scarborough continued taking shots at Schwarz after the reporter left the air.
