MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski said Friday on “Morning Joe” that Hillary Clinton’s campaign wanted her pulled off the air for being critical of the Democratic nominee.
Ms. Brzezinski said NBC got a call from the campaign after she suggested on-air that it needed to do a better job at reaching out to voters.
“Listen, I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance, they needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over,” she said.
“I’ll just say it: NBC got a call from the campaign,” she continued. “Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air.
“I mean, think about that. That’s just, that’s shooting the wrong messenger,” she added.
Ms. Brzezinski’s co-host, Joe Scarborough, pointed out that people close to the campaign also tried to say it was in trouble but were shut out.
