From the October 11 edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe:
JOE SCARBOROUGH (CO-HOST): So last week we were saying why didn't anybody take polls after debates, right?
MIKA BRZEZINSKI (CO-HOST): They didn't.
SCARBOROUGH: And they didn't for a long time. So this NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, we work here and we love working here, we love this place. They take the poll the second the crisis starts.
BRZEZINSKI: But there's a debate scheduled.
SCARBOROUGH: And stop it right before the debate. It could not have been cooked more to get the result they got.
BRZEZINSKI: I don't think it was cooked.
SCARBOROUGH: No, no, I'm just saying --
BRZEZINSKI: I think no one was thinking.
SCARBOROUGH: You cook it by the point you put it. It's just ridiculous to say, “We're going to put this at the height of the scandal.” And so they get a 14 point lead. What do you expect?
BRZEZINSKI: But there's a debate scheduled. Wouldn’t you wait until after --
SCARBOROUGH: Yeah, wouldn't you do it after the debate?
