Scarborough, "moderate" just like RushMay 7, 2004 6:15 PM EDT ››› NICOLE CASTA
Less than three weeks after MSNBC host Joe Scarborough described himself as a "very moderate guy," he grouped his program, Scarborough Country, together with FOX News Channel and radio host Rush Limbaugh (the man who compared the torture of Iraqi prisoners to a college fraternity prank and said the U.S. guards were simply "having a good time"). Referring to Al Franken (host of The O'Franken Factor on the Air America Radio network) and to former Vice President Al Gore (who recently announced plans to launch a new TV network), Scarborough posed this question on his May 6 show:
"First Franken, now Gore. Should Republicans be concerned that the Democrats are launching this alternative media counterrevolution to FOX News and this show and Rush Limbaugh?"
