Scarborough: ‘I Blame Cable News’ for Cops Being Less Safe

‘They are promoting the next Roanoke-style shooting’

Scarborough: 'I Blame Cable News' for Cops Being Less Safe (NewsBusters)

You wish he had named names . . . On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough flatly stated "I do blame it on cable news" for "people wearing uniforms being a lot less safe today than they were before Ferguson."

So just which cable networks did Joe have in mind? Until last week [when he was relegated to the Sunday morning desert], Scarborough's own MSNBC was the Al Sharpton network. So surely Scarborough was pointing the finger at least partially at MSNBC.  But as he continued, Scarborough also identified other unnamed cable networks that he accused of "glorifying" Vester Flanagan and "promoting the next Roanoke-style shooting" by displaying his Twitter feed and other such info, which is what killers like Flanagan seek.
