Joe Scarborough: Fox News Hosts in ‘Alternate Universe’ After Trump Guilty Verdict

Reactions continue to come in from all angles of the political spectrum after former President Donald Trump was found guilty on 34 charges of falsifying business records in New York. MSNBC host Joe Scarborough couldn’t believe what he saw while watching the response from hosts on Fox News.

During Morning Joe Friday, Scarborough noted that he was watching the reactions on Fox News like a regular cable news viewer when he was stunned by what he saw.

“As Mika (Brzezinski) was flipping over to other channels, they seemed to be in an alternate universe,” Scarborough said. “And she said — and chose to stress that — the facts just didn’t seem to matter. I reminded her of what happened in 2012, which is Fox News kept telling everybody that Mitt Romney was going to beat Barack Obama up until election night, and they were so sure of it. And they kept pushing that information. So disinformation, so much that even Mitt Romney and Ann Romney that night couldn’t believe it. They’re like, ‘Wait, it’s like we’re winning this’ because they just watched this one channel.

“If people want to just watch Fox News between now and the election, if they want to feast on disinformation, if they want to be blind to what swing state voters want to hear about and what they care about, it does not hurt Joe Biden. It doesn’t hurt the Democrats. It ends up hurting Republicans.”

He continued by pinning recent electoral losses for conservatives on their inability to hear the other side of the political aisle.

“They still are in the echo chamber right now. So, again, it’s their decision. I keep trying to tell them to open up. Don’t be in the plastic bubble. Open up. Go out there. Get information from other sides. Be more competitive. They just can’t,” he said.
