[Ed. – Maybe the sudden flash-theme about Fox “dropping” Rubio hasn’t taken proper hold yet?]
Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough reacted to a New York magazine article by Gabe Sherman suggesting that the hierarchy at Fox News has soured on Sen. Marco Rubio ’s (R-FL) bid for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
Scarborough called the report “shocking” given his perception of Fox News’ coverage of Rubio, then went on to liken present-day Fox News to MSNBC’s 2008 coverage of the contest between then-Sens. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Hillary Clinton (D-NY) for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
“You’re seeing also New York magazine writing stories about how Fox News has abandoned Marco Rubio, which is shocking because, my God, I’ve never seen a candidate treated better by any network, well, other than MSNBC bowing and scraping to Barack Obama in 2008,” Scarborough said.
