I have a new here. Her name is Mika Brzezinski. She works for NBC News and appears (doing the news) on Morning Joe on MSNBC. Mika Brzezinski is the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski who worked as the National Security Adviser during the Carter Administration. She is a journalist who takes the news seriously. She grew up in a serious home, and is a serious journalist.
Last month, when she was called on to do the news the lead story was the release of Paris Hilton from prison. She crumbled the top pages of the lead story and refused to do it. She moved on to the next story which was, actually, a significant piece of news.
In the next hour, after refusing to lead with this story, the producers of the show gave her the news stories and they again led with the Paris Hilton prison release story. This time she walked across the studio and put the story in the shredder. Then she went on to give the real news.
I say this because here are some of the major news stories right now.
There is further evidence of a dramatic cover up in the case of Pat Tillman. The cover up was worse than previously thought.
