TNR‘s Editor-in-Chief Franklin Foer should probably go on “Morning Joe” more often, if for nothing else, to hear all the praise that host Joe Scarborough has to shower on him.
Sure hope Scarborough hasn’t forgotten about his first love: Politico.
“If you haven’t looked at The New Republic lately, you really need to,” Scarborough gushed. “I get it at my home. It is a new magazine, an old magazine, it’s got great writing, visually, and you’re really starting to see it come out in this issue, it’s just great.” Pointing to a magazine picture of an old man with wild hair on an island, he said, “Actually this is what happens to MSNBC hosts when they retire.”
He added, “Frank, you’re doing a great job there even if you are a Barcelona fan.”
Franklin was nothing but smiles.
