Scarborough, “moderate” just like Rush

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?”
