“major contribution to the protection of First Amendment freedoms”
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe are about to be honored with a journalism award because of there’s one thing people in media love to do, it’s pat each other on the back.
Kyle Drennen reports at NewsBusters:
Seriously? Joe & Mika Getting Award for ‘Responsible Journalism’
Two of most wildly irresponsible members of liberal media, MSNBC anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, are going to receive an award for being part of “a distinguished group of journalists and First Amendment leaders that exemplify responsible journalism and who practice their constitutionally guaranteed duty to seek and report the truth.”
That’s not a joke, the Radio Television Digital News Foundation (RTDNF) will actually be honoring the Morning Joe co-hosts during the organization’s annual First Amendment Awards dinner on March 8 in Washington, D.C. The couple will specifically receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award for “a radio or television journalist or news executive who has made a major contribution to the protection of First Amendment freedoms.”
In just the past week, Scarborough and Brzezinki have attempted to diagnose Donald Trump with a myriad of mental illnesses while also labeling him an “evil” “racist” who loves Nazis. Over the course of the past year, the pair have routinely offered similarly unhinged commentary against the President.
They sure do work hard. Does everyone remember back in September when Mika said she couldn’t tell the difference between Trump and Kim Jong Un?
Or how about the time Joe said it was chilling that so many Americans voted for Trump?
Here’s more about their award from the RTDNF website:
Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award

RTDNF presents this award annually to a radio or television journalist or news executive who has made a major contribution to the protection of First Amendment freedoms. It is named for the late Broadcasting & Cable senior correspondent Leonard Zeidenberg.
People like Charles Murray and others have been attacked by mobs on college campuses, but the people in Joe and Mika’s social circle see themselves as brave defenders of the First Amendment.
Just take a look at this excerpt from TV Newser:
Joe & Mika, Gretchen Carlson, Robin Roberts Among First Amendment Award Honorees
In the last year, the First Amendment has been under attack as the news media has had to fight against unprecedented accusations from the highest political office in the land.
That’s one of the reasons the Radio Television Digital News Foundation says this year’s annual First Amendment Awards are more important than ever.
They have such an inflated sense of self importance yet no self awareness at all.DONATE
